Back in the early 90s, Sega gave the world Sonic the Hedgehog. And all was right with the world.

Now, I'm a huge Sonic fan. Along with the Ninja Turtles, Star Wars & Spider-Man, you have the four franchises which basically shaped the tastes I would develop as an adult. And back in the mid-90s, there was a Sonic comic that began publication by Archie, simply entitled Sonic the Hedgehog and basically following the same canon as the cartoon nicknamed "SatAM" by fans.

I am not talking about that comic.

No, being that I am English, I am in fact talking about Fleetway's Sonic the Comic. A completely different entity & canon to Archie's comic, STC was more of an anthology book - It featured at least one Sonic comic an issue, and originally featured three other comics based off games available on the Mega Drive - Such as Decap Attack, Streets of Rage, Shinobi & Kid Chameleon - but eventually, as the world that was being built in the Sonic stories grew, the non-Sonic stories shrunk down to just one an issue, and eventually just became a Decap Attack strip. Hilariously, the comic did sky pirates long before Sega released Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast.

But anyway, back to my point.

To steal a line... TIME FOR BACKSTORY! )

Considering it's the 10th Anniversary, I figured this would be a good juncture to post some scans from the first comic series I ever read, Sonic The Comic. And what would be more fitting than the hundredth issue of the series? I guess the tenth, but... 100 is more celebratory.
