Writers are the members of staff at Sonic the Comic and Sonic the Comic Online who write the scripts that will go on to become strips within the comic. Compared to the number of artists, writers were few to help continuity. Nevertheless, many non-Sonic comics had separate writers who didn't write any lead Sonic the Hedgehog strips.
Alan McKenzie wrote the very first story to appear in STC, but Mark Millar would be the first to become a regular writer. Nigel Kitching appeared in Issue 4 and would soon become one of two lead writers with Lew Stringer. Kitching was sacked towards the end of STC's life but would be reinstated as solo writer for the final Sonic Adventure story arc.
