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.

A long ago posting, and a favourite of mine, to add to the Anniversary celebrations.

A sample of the "Dick Grayson (and therefor Robin) goes back to the circus" stories that DC used to love so much... And I know I did too.

I know that when he was in the Titans Dick got used to be carried through the air by Starfire, but honestly....



It's a purely fun blast from the past from DC Comics Presents #31, written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez with inks from Dick Giordano (Always a killer combination for classic DC characters) - Where Superman hoists an elephant, Robin ends up in a cage and Jimmy and Lois show why Clark really IS the brains of the Daily Planet's star trio.

A few of the scans aren't the greatest quality because it's an old, old comic now!

Giddy up Superman! )

My other favorite old Fred Perry's Gold Digger post!



Below are scans from possibly my favorite one-issue Gold Digger story, GD59, focusing on Charlie the Harpy... and Charlie the Harpy, and Charlie the Harpy :)

 I cannot remember what book I got this from, it's been a while.  It was during the Alpha days in the Spidey books, and I thought this guy would have been perfect for Pete's sidekick!

Ok, the setup:  Pete's having a realyl bad day leading up to this.  Nothing going quite right, and he overhears a kid being bullied.  As it turns out, the kid is claiming that he knows Spider-Man.  So after he does the cool thing to spook off the bullies, he decides to sit down and have a talk with Chris.



Pete! Being fun! )

This was my first post on the current Scans Daily. It was also a post for "One Perfect Moment" week, and it still stands as She Hulk's Crowning Moment of Awesome.
