[edit] Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Human!

  • Script and Art: Ed Hillyer
  • Lettering: Ellie de Ville

The story starts with Dr. Robotnik in a giant robotic suit (similar in design to the Death Egg Robot) having taken Tails hostage and about to trample on Sonic. Then Sonic wakes up from his nightmare in a bedroom which appears to be his, only he doesn't know where he is. He sees himself in the mirror and sees that he isn't a hedgehog any more, but a human instead.

Sonic the human!
From downstairs someone is calling for "Erin" which Sonic thinks could mean him so he goes down to find a woman cooking breakfast who claims to be his mother. Sonic is confused but sits down until his mother tries to get him to eat an egg, causing Sonic to run out of the door, but he finds himself in a back garden, not in the Emerald Hill Zone like he expected. Sonic starts to think he might never get home again when he hears someone yelling for help in the next door garden. The kid next door, who has hair like Tails' tails, is in trouble so Sonic tries to spin attack into the fence, but he can't manage the spin and knocks himself unconscious when his head hits the fence.

When Sonic wakes up he is in bed again with the sheets tucked in so tight he can't move. His mother again tries to make Sonic eat the egg, although this time he calls Sonic "Spikeball", causing Sonic to realise that instead of being a human who dreamt he was a hedgehog, he is a hedgehog dreaming. As he realises this Sonic breaks out of the dream machine he had been plugged into. Dr. Robotnik is obviously frustrated his machine didn't work, having intended to turn Sonic and Tails into mindless slaves with the dream machine and makes a quick exit. Sonic then lets Tails out of the machine, who wonders how they got here, but Sonic says Tails would never believe him about the terrible planet they were imprisoned on in their nightmares.

[edit] Ecco the Dolphin

Ecco the Dolphin, Part 5

  • Script: Woodrow Phoenix
  • Art: Steve White
  • Lettering: Tome Frame

Ecco has swum a vast distance but has now come across the city of Atlantis, finding inside a large number of Glyphs who unlock special powers within Ecoo so that he now knows what the Vortex look like and their intentions. They also increased the power of Ecco's sonar so that he can take on any enemy, and communicate across vast distances. With Ecco's new abilities, he feels even more confident than ever that he can succeed.

[edit] The Legend of the Golden Axe

Plague of Serpents, Part 5

  • Script: Mark Eyles
  • Art: Mike White
  • Lettering: Ellie de Ville

Gilius uses the Golden Axe to hack away at the snakes surrounding the Queen in order to free her, then takes on Cobraxis with the help of Yuki, who uses her magic to grow a bamboo garden, which stabs the summoned snakes warriors. Cobraxis and the others priests close in on Gilius, Yuki and the Queen, so the Queen uses her own powers to summon dragons, although Cobraxis doesn't believe she can possibly have command over dragons. But as they are about to fight, the roof of the cave starts to fall in.

[edit] Tails

The Nameless Zone, Part 2

  • Script: Nigel Kitching
  • Art: Dave Windett
  • Lettering: Elitta Fell
Tails fighting Trogg
The Enchanter Kings lead Tails to the Dimension Bridge where Trogg is waiting to challenge him, telling Tails that if he should lose the fight then Trogg will invade the Nameless Zone with his army of berserkers. Tails steps forward, worried about how he can tell them that he exaggerated his abilities in his letters back home. As he approaches Trogg he is easily knocked down, although in doing so, Tails accidentally cuts the rope of the bridge, causing them both to fall as the bridge collapses.

Trogg manages to grab onto part of the rope bridge and hangs over the ravine, believing that Tails has fallen to his death, until he flies towards him and threatens to cut the rope unless Trogg agrees to surrender. With the Zone saved, the Enchanter Kings and the rest of the foxes thank Tails for saving them and allow Tails to travel back to the Emerald Hill Zone through the portal, the enchanted battle armour staying behind as it cannot leave the zone. Once Tails arrives back, Sonic wonders what Tails has been up to, but Tails just says he hasn't been doing anything at all.
