Sonic the Hedgehog
Out of Psyche, Out of Mind is a 2-part story written by Jamie J, drawn by Adamis, coloured by Fast Ashadonic and lettered by Charles Ellis. Sonic and Tails have come to Hell's Pantry to find Don Long-Legs but end up being switched into other bodies by Oscura of The Family. Implanting himself into the hedgehog's body, Oscura manages to win round some of the Metropolis Zone public but the real Sonic is left shocked when the Zone is invaded by flying whales.
Knuckles the Echidna
Solitary is a complete story by Stephen Davis, Orin and Ellis. Knuckles is having no luck getting information from the captured Doctor Zachary and he is too preoccupied looking for secrets from his ancestors that he is ignoring Tikal. Porker Lewis provides little advice and another attempt to get Knuckles to listen to her leaves Tikal distraught when he yells at her. Porker eventually persuades Knuckles to go easy on his search for the past.
In Cold Blood is a 2-part story by Jamie J, Adamis and Ellis. Amy Rose is accompanying the Eldorado Zone police on a mission to track down criminal Bleed but ends up in hospital. Tails vows to take over from Amy and discovers that Bleed is actively inviting challengers. Tails obliges but the insect uses his powers to raise Tails' adrenaline to dangerous levels.
After a small hiatus, the Control Zone is back with Megadroid introducing this issue's stories and features. He also urges Boomers to vote for STC-O in the Eagle Awards, as well as alumni Richard Elson, Tom Frame, Lew Stringer and Nigel Kitching. Even Sonic is up for an award.
The Data Zone gives brief introductions of Sonic, Tails, Amy, The Family, Knuckles, Tikal, Porker and Zachary. The 'story so far' is that, "for years, the evil Doctor Robotnik ruled Planet Mobius. Eventually, Sonic and his Freedom Fighter gang defeated Robotnik and freed the planet. But now Mobius is in trouble again. The sinister insect gangsters known as The Family are causing trouble across the world, and Sonic's name is being pulled through the mud by the media…".
Iain Stewart provides an article for this issue's Review Zone, awarding Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) 80%. The controls and characters were praised, but the game was marked down for its inconsistent quality and for not being very "next-gen".
