Sonic the Hedgehog
Power of the Chaos Emeralds is a 2-part story by Nigel Kitching, Richard Elson and Ellie de Ville. Sonic and Tails have tracked Doctor Robotnik's Egg-o-Matic to the Floating Island, but Knuckles the Echidna is furious. Instead of fighting him, Knuckles activates a pair of giant hands that trap Sonic. In the Temple of Chaos, Robotnik recombines the two sets of Chaos Emeralds and absorbs their power to become invincible, turning Tails to glass while he's at it. A coy Knuckles pulls out the Grey Emerald and sends Robotnik back to Mobius without his powers.
Bring Me The Head of Coach Brikka is a 6-part story written by Steve White and Brian Williamson, with art from Williamson and Anthony Williams, Tom Frame providing the lettering. The Super Bowel XXIV playoff has begun, with the Slaycity Slayers turning themselves into a Stunticombinaconaformabot. The Razor Kid leads an assault on the bot, with Bones Jackson winning the match and Brenda Brikka's hand in marriage.
Zonerunner & The Flock is a 4-part story by Mark Eyles, with art by Roberto Corona and lettering by Elitta Fell. Tails has been cornered by Nutzan Bolt but is rescued by Sab. She takes him to see The Flock and they tell them what they've learned.
Who Killed Chuck? is a 6-part story by Kitching and Steve Potter. Chuck D. Head has just learned that Igor was the one to kill him and lashes out. They are interrupted by the return of Detective Case and Igor pretends that Chuck is the murderer. The police officer sets off on a chase through Castle Frank N. Stein with Igor as a guide.
This issue's Control Zone is largely dominated with information about the free gift, although there is time to welcome back the Eternal Champions. There are also pictures of Sonic and Knuckles birthday cakes, the photos earning the bakers a badge. The Sega Charts see Sonic games Sonic 2 and Sonic Chaos re-enter the 8-bit charts in first place, whilst FIFA International Soccer remains top of the other lists.
There's a fighting theme in the Review Zone, with David Gibbon awarding Dragon 90%, but Steve May gives Super Street Fighter 2 the victory with 92%. Garry Penn presents the News Zone, covering Doom, Radical Rex and Mega Bomberman. The Short Bursts section briefly mentions the sequel to Ecco the Dolphin, a re-release of classic games for the main three Sega consoles, more support for the 32X and there's The Adventures of Batman and Robin.
Part 3 of the Q Zone's Sonic the Hedgehog 3 edition of Sonic Solved sees Vincent Low provide tips on how to beat the first six bosses in the game. Megadroid answers reader letters in Speedlines, pondering over a Sonic movie, the origin of Amy's pink fur, what "STC" stands for and a new Sonic fan. All printed letters and pictures earned the Boomers responsible a Tomy Sonic the Hedgehog Water Fun Game.
