Advertising was a position at Sonic the Comic during its print run. The role involved handling all advertisements that could be found on the comic's pages. Advertising enquiries were sent to this staff member by a telephone number posted in the Control Zone.
Tom Glenister was the first person to be credited in this role, his name appearing at the bottom of Issue 8's Control Zone. Sarah Connell took over the position in Issue 68. From Issue 80 onwards, the advertising staff member went uncredited, the credits merely showing the number to send enquiries to. Stephen Goldsmith was the first name to return to the credits. However, Issue 129 saw "advertising" disappear from the credits altogether. Goldsmith's name returned in Issue 172 (now credited as "Steve"). He stayed in this role throughout the reprint era, but was understandably not credited in Issue 223.
