#256 | Nov 2011
Hope you all had a great Hallowe’en! The Humes got a bit carried away with their tricks and ending up locking themselves in a cupboard for a week. I only discovered them when I went to get the sparklers out last weekend.
As it turns out, they had time to throw together an extra spooky strip for the issue while they were in there. I’m considering locking them in there more often now, to be honest… Tails comes to the aid of a haunted village in this year’s hallowe’en strip: Spooks and Mirrors.
Knuckles has also been hard at work in the background, trying to find out ways to bring Robotnik down. Follow one of their battles in Master of All I Survey!
Anyway! With the launch of STC-O 256, we bring you a head on collision between Sonic and his original red, dreaded rival, Knuckles! It’s been a while since the pair faced off and no doubt Knuckles is still holding a grudge.
Tails and Amy have a run-in with a suspicious group, enforcing their own brand of justice across Mobius. Who are they and what do they have to do with the return of a certain League? Find out more in The Hunted.
The current chapter of House of the Dead draws to a close this issue. Will everything be answered? There’s all the usual action to be found in Charnel House – Part 4!
I guess I’d better let the Humes out of the cupboard now… Oh? What’s that? Sonic Generations and an XBox all to myself? Ok, so I might leave them in there for a couple more days…
The Story So Far...
Doctor Robotnik has returned, and Mobius is at war against his armies – with Tails as its greatest hero! But while many fight Robotnik, others have different agendas…
Sonic the Hedgehog was once the respected hero of Mobius but was framed as a terrorist and now travels on his own, doing what he can to help people anonymously. He’s always looking for a way to depose Doctor Robotnik from his seat as the biggest threat to Mobius and following a hectic adventure inside the Doctor’s citadel, he may have found a way to start…
Doctor Robotnik was once the feared dictator of Mobius. However, constant defeats at the hands of Sonic and the freedom fighters left him insane and mute. The Drakon Empire have combined his brilliant intellect with their technology, granting him a form of sanity, not to mention control over every badnik on the planet!
Knuckles is from an ancient race of Echidnas, now almost all extinct. He was given the gift of immortality and left on the Floating Island to protect his people’s prized treasure: The Chaos Emeralds! Following a run-in with the God of Death, he sacrified this ability and now is on his ‘last life!’

Tails has taken up the mantle of Mobius’ hero since Sonic was forced to go on the run. After always living in Sonic’s shadow, he’s always worried about not being up to the task but is gradually becoming a hero in his own right.
Amy is a gutsy freedom fighter and, next to Tails, leads the charge in the war against Robotnik. Always full of fighting spirit and a ‘never give up’ attitude, Amy is always on the front lines, doing everything she can to help the people of Mobius win their fight.
House of the Dead
The Story so Far…
Earth, 2018: fifteen years after manufactured armies of zombies swarmed the Earth, created to murder mankind! Survivors are at risk from both the undead hordes & their controllers and power-grabbing groups like the Resurrection Men… but in post-zombie London, humanity refuses to stay down!
Experienced, heroic, and downright dangerous, AMS agent Rogan has been fighting the zombies since 1998. He just rescued his wife and is returning home…
Originally a scientist, twenty years of zombie fighting with AMS has turned her into a dangerous combatant – but fighting zombies has never been as challenging as being a mother! She recently learnt about a threat called NAOMI.
She may be a normal light-hearted young girl, but growing up in the apocalypse has seen her grown into a skilled fighter.
Immaculately dressed and always cool, AMS agent G’s been fighting at Rogan’s side for over 20 years. He’s an inhumanly good shot, and was strangely unaffected by a severe psychic assault…
