Sonic HQ

Sonic The Hedgehog #1

SONIC'S RACING INTO A NEW ADVENTURE! After defeating the evil Dr. Eggman's latest plot, Sonic is racing around the world to shut down the robotic Badnik forces that are still attacking villages. But it's a big job for one person-even Sonic the Hedgehog! Fortunately, he'll have some help from his best friend: Tails!

Sonic The Hedgehog #2

Sonic’s new adventure continues, and when he comes across another town in need of saving, his old pal Amy arrives just in time to join the fight! The banter is fun, and the stakes are high, but things get really serious when Amy presents Sonic with a big request: rejoin the Resistance!

Sonic The Hedgehog #3

Sonic and Knuckles team up, and it's just like old times-until two new villains show up. With a group of villagers under attack, will even the combined forces of these two heroes be enough to take down Rough and Tumble???

Sonic The Hedgehog #4

Sonic comes across a town under attack from the biggest Badnik force he’s ever seen. Luckily, help is on the way from his old friend Blaze, as well as a new hero! Get ready for the debut of Tangle!

Sonic The Hedgehog #5

“The Fate of Dr. Eggman,” Part 1. After his last battle with Sonic, Dr. Eggman’s gone quiet. His Badnik forces are still causing trouble, but without the bad doctor’s usual fanfare. What’s Eggman been doing all this time? And what will happen to Sonic when he finds out?

Sonic The Hedgehog, Vol. 1: Fallout!

Join the Blue Blur for brand-new adventures as he and his friends race around the world to defeat the evil Dr. Eggman's robotic forces!

Ken Penders' Next Online Chat

Ken Penders posted this on his message board earlier today:

I'll be online Wednesday, May 29 at 7:00 EST in the chatroom if anyone's interested. I've been so busy with work the past couple of months that it feels strange when I'm not. It's all I can do to even respond to e-mail as well. Anyway, hope to see you there.

Sonic GBA Pack Petition

A petition was recently started by myself (Sonic Sue) in order to try and persuade SEGA/Sonic Team to re-release some of the original Sonic the Hedgehog games that appeared on the SEGA Mega Drive (Genesis in the USA), Master System and Game Gear on one cartridge for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance.
This is so that both long-time Sonic fans and newcomers alike can experience these games again (or for the first time, as the case may be).
Please check it out - every signature is appreciated! ^_^

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle out early in Europe...

Sega Europe/Inforgrames have released Sonic Adventure 2: Battle for the Gamecube a week early! The game was released yesterday, whilst the Gamecube is not due to be released until Friday May 3rd.

Personally I don't know why Sega would do this, but maybe it is so that people will buy it because it's the first Gamecube game over here? Who knows! Having looked at the box myself there is also a spelling error: They have called Dr. Eggman; Dr. Eggmann!

Dawn Best to be at the Pittsburgh Comicon This Weekend

This was posted by Ken Penders:

Dawn Best to make 1st appearance at the Pittsburgh Comicon This Weekend

Since I wasn't able to make the Pittsburgh Comicon due to my recent move out west, I'm happy to announce that Dawn Best will be attending in my stead. She'll be happy to sign copies of your issues and is available for commissioned art. Here's the rare chance to acquire a piece of original work from a professional at the beginning of her career, so you won't want to miss out on this.

If anyone who sees this posts on other message boards, please be kind enough to spread the word to other Sonic fans about Dawn at Pittsburgh, will you? Thanks.

As for me, the San Diego Comic-Con will be the only convention I'm going to do this year, and schedules permitting next year, I hope to be back at Pittsburgh for 2003.
