This is the 3rd of my 4 contributions to the New to STC summary we've been doing for the last few months over at STC Online, as you can see for this panel we had a special guest.
The idea is we'll have a complete summary of the original run of Fleetways sonic the comic, for all Sonic fans to come and look at and quickly get uptodate with what happened in Sonic the Comic, hopefully this is a funny interesting way to do it, and we have some amazing helping out alongside are regular art team.
It was great to get to work with Yardley. Who we first met back at Summer of Sonic 2011; at Summer of Sonic Yardley commented that if he ever had some free time he love to contribute something, so earlier this year myself and emailed Yardley to see if we could make it a reality.
Thankfully Tracy said yes and did this brilliant picture depicting the events of Game Over.
explains the panel like this... The "Game Over" storyline, which started in issue #171 with the story "Planet in Peril!" and continued into the two part story of the same name, starting in issue #173. The mad doctor may have bought himself some tickets to the gun show by draining the very life force of Mobius to grant him super strength, but it was the living plastic alien androids The Plax who granted him the power to bring about total environmental collapse on the planet! This evil race hailed from the microscopic world of Shanaznar and first crossed swords with Sonic in the story "The Rig" in issue #159. While the entire hive colony was destroyed by Robotnik before he could be stopped, who knows where a rogue piece of dodgy Magnaz might turn up again... The day was eventually saved by Shortfuse the Cybernik, with the added bonus of destroying the indestructible suit of armour Shorty had been trapped in for all those years - things were really starting to look up for the good guys!
