Oh, you will love Knuckles #19. Prince Acorn makes his first appearence...and who said you should be dissapointed?
Don't you mean "dudes"? Two people are answering questions. As for the comic. Yes, it's the best selling comic for Archie. That means it sold more than any other Archie comics, not all of them put together.
Check our Links page before asking this question. It's in the section with the emails.
She was called Princess Sally in Japan, Amy Rose else where in the world. Why did they do that? Ask Sega...
1) Yes, check your local video store to see if they have it. Wal-mart's got some, too.
2) No, but he's trying to revive it.
For Tails age, it depends on which spin-off universe you're looking at, so everyone's right. As for Knuckles' birthday, check Knuckles #25.
The comic has no plans on ending anytime soon. For one thing its WAY too popular - and I mean popular on a global scale. There are people in Singapore who read it. That and its a big money grabber and attention getter for the Sega execs. As for the synopsis - Good lord man!!!! That would take far too long to list here. Instead go to the comics archive page via the Comics page. All the info you'll need on current and past activities in the Comics for Sonic and Tails are there. Mobius' actaul position in the universe is unknown. With its three moons - the two unnamed ones and Muckery, the one made entirely out of an oozing ball of mud, where Robotnik's old Robostorm base is currently sinking - some say its lightyears from our universe. Somesay it exists only in fiction, some say it could possibly be the future Earth itself - most likely after a nuclear holocaust which disfigured humans and evolved the animals, and some even go as far as to say it exists on an alternate timeline from our own. The actual truth has been unexplored by Archie and Sega - but some facts may be released come Sonic 70 and on in "Tales Of The Great War". Its unkown just how much the focus will be on Mobius instead of the war though. But wherever it is it definetely takes place in a future type setting. As for human contact - they will see something of the sort in SSS7 - The Image Comics Super Special - that AND the Overlanders - of which Dr. Robotnik hails from - are considered a Subhuman or metahuman or even human evolved hybrids or humans themselves. Thier origins still remain a mystery....The Overlanders ARE considered an enemy but there have been some, very few, that have been friendly. We'll know more come future issues of Sonic - starting at issue 70 and future issues of Knuckles.....
I'll post all info and codes on the games page as soon as I can get around to it. In the meanwhile the code you need is this Level-Select: When the Sega logo comes up, just after the "Sega" theme is sung and the screen begins to turn black, quickly press: Up, Up, Down, Down, Up, Up, Up, Up to the beat of the drums. You should hear a ring chime if you did it correctly. A new Sound Test option should appear at the title screen. Auto Super Sonic: Input the level-select code. At the new Sound Test, play the following tracks: 1, 3, 4, 2, 4, 5, 6. You should hear a Ring chime. Select your Zone. Grab atleast 50 Rings, jump into the air, and press A, B, or C. there are more codes but I'll get to it as soon as possible!
Under Ground zone:
Get trough an entire act on the higher ledges. At the end of the zone,you
will see a ramp. Drop down the ramp and you will land next to a railcart.
Walk in it and while it' s
running down the hill jump from it to the right. Go up the stairs and you
will see the emerald.
Sky High zone: Get the glider at the start and fly with it just below the top of the screen. Glide all the way to the right and you will see the emerald.
Aqua Lake zone:Hold right when going through the second tube area.
Green Hills zone: Jump on the springs at the begining of the spike field. You should land on another set of springs. Hold right until you see the emerald.
Gimmick Mountain zone: When crossing the first conveyor belt area, jump on the bottom step (onthe higher one Grounder will attack you), then jump to the left in the wall. Continue left.
Thanks for your help Jan! Some stuff you mentioned even I did not know - I'll be sure to post this info on the games page with your name as a credit!
Uhhhhh...yeah.......so there.......Gone 'head girlfriend! handle yo' biz!
As for the comics, cartoons, and games page I'll work on a disclaimer that will show it. As for the other members I'll mention it to them.
Questions, questions, questions..... :o)
1. Toys R' Us and other toy stores have either retailed it to little than nothing and sold out or thier just out of stock on it period. And most likely they have no plans on restocking. This was said in a news post months ago. So keep looking.
2. Mecha Sonic, I doubt - because Mecha Sonic is the REAL Sonic roboticised as shown in Sonic #39 and Mecha Madness. If enough fans ask for it however there is a possibility that we may see Metal Sonic - the actual clone created by Robotnik seen in Knuckles Chaotix, Sonic CD and Sonic And Knuckles. As for Silver Sonic ( Sonic 2 ) yet again its a matter of if enough fans ask for him.
3. I'll see what I can scrounge up... :o)
4. Toon Disney is on cable. So you'll have to contact your local cable operator to get them to carry it if you don't recieve it.
5. I HIGHLY doubt that. The only possiblity we'll ever see Nights again may be IN a Super Special. But the way the last Nights comic went I don't see that as a big possibility. It would take an act of Sega and a BIG risk on Archie to see Nights in comics again - maybe if his popularity among fans and quality of stories were higher....
None taken :o) - And you're right: I happen to know someone with an Overstreet Price Guide and i looked it up. In the price guide its worth what you say but depending on where you go and the demand that is out for it among Sonic fans the price could be upped, but I doubt to a full 50. That, plus the fact that Sonic isnt one of the biggest mainstream comic books - So funny animal books with the exception of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Uncle Scrooge, tend to get the short look at. With a signature on the cover that would up it even more however. I guess it really all just depends on supply and demand, how much the vendor and reader would want it for and signature value. And as for TMNT I lived for it before Sonic was ever even known to the world and when you say it had a big fan following you ain't just whistlin Dixie. I miss the big greens - but on an interesting note the Archie Sonic comics are surpassing the TMNT comics in number ( I think TMNT ended at 67 ) and value - Sonic has already surpassed TMNT as Archie's best selling comic. And this has been said by Paul Castiglia himself. As for the fan base - TMNT wins because it has had fans YEARS longer than Sonic. So GO BIG GREEN and GO BIG BLUE! Cowabunga!
I'm in charge of that page and for the life of me NOW it wont work for me either - that and I've gotten lots of emails telling me it wont work still even after i tried to fix it. So for now the sound will be down until I can locate the actual source of the problem - Look for me to tell you when it will be back up on the news page.
Now THAT is a good question. Amy Rose, I mean...First I dont think Tails is 8. In Sonic 2 he was 8 but I think around Sonic 3 he was 10 - correct me if I'm wrong. Fleetway Comics tend to follow the games more but they have her almost as old as Sonic which we all know isnt true. In Archie Comics she's somewhere around or after 10 I believe - nearly as old or just as old as Tails. And I think its this age that is correct. Compare her look in Sonic CD to her look now in Sonic Adventure - In Sonic CD she looks 10 but Yuji Naka has already stated that the characters are older in Sonic Adventure. Heck - even Archie is getting ready to up Sonic to 16 for Adventure. So I'm ASSUMING that come Sonic Adventure she'll be 11 or 12 - MAYBE 13. In Sonic CD she's 10. So I'm assuming that in Archie right now - which is currently between CD and Adventure she's 11. Confusing? Think of it like this - Sonic CD: 10, Archie Continuity Currently: 11, Sonic Adventure: 12. This follows a "timeline" of sorts exactly and places all within a nice flowing form. I always envisioned Amy 1 year younger than Tails so I guess this would make the most sense placing Tails at 13 come Sonic Adventure. The reason I gave you all three ages is because Sonic CD is in the past (1990 or 1991). Archie Continuity is NOW (1997-1998) but is getting ready to change come Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Adventure is coming out soon (1999). So this is the best way TO ME that it makes sense. As for the comics either check your local comic book store OR the Sonic Checklist in the back of the book.
You really should watch where you get your psycho rumors from.....That lie is as big as the gap in my cousins teeth. Sonic Underground is currently in production and being voice recorded and animated while the new season of cartoons is going on - most likely to be a midseason replacement or a new toon to the new season. If you don't believe me I'm an animation major and have all the credentials - that and there's a tidbit of it on some of it on the most prolific animation mag sites - Most notably Toon magazine...
I don't doubt you saw Sonic X-Treme there but what I do doubt is if you ordered it that you would have gotten it. You see Sonic Extreme was cancelled and never released by Sega ANYWHERE PERIOD. Most likely they probably had "Sonic X-Treme" under the name of the game that came out right after the hype - Sonic 3-D Blast which is most often - surprisingly - confused with "X-Treme". If you dont believe me check out the games page and compare the screenshots between X-Treme and Blast - Totally different.
Ah another Nack fan.....Know anyone named Joya Nappo? Anywho - no, Nack did not appear in the TV series. He first showed up in Sonic The Hedgehog: Triple Trouble for Game Gear and the comic adaption by Archie.
Thanks for the help. I'm sure the other Sonic fans will appreciate it. And for those who don't know - YOU CAN GET SUPER KNUX WITHOUT THE CODE! Of couse then you'll also have to find all 7 emeralds as well.....
