What Is Sonic the Comic?

STC is a comic based on the adventures of Sega's flagship mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as including strips of many other famous Sega characters such as; Ecco the Dolphin, Sparkster and Streets of Rage. STC was produced by two companies over its 8 year and 223 issue life span; issues 1 to 88 were produced by Fleetway Editions, but after issue 88 Egmont bought Fleetway and so Fleetway became a subsidiary of Egmont so from issue 89 onwards it was produced by Egmont Fleetway. STC started in the latter quarter of 1993 and contained all original stories until 133 when they started reprinting one old strip an issue;  gradually as time went on all strips became reprints and all extra content (Control Zone, Graphic Zone, etc) was ditched, this is due to Egmont trying to increase profit by decreasing cost but this action also lost them a lot of readers. This whole cost cutting affair led to the cancellation of STC in the latter part of 2000 or early 2001 at issue 223.

Over the 8 year life time the artists and writers produced a lot if excellent strips following along the lines of the Sonic games of the day from the Death Egg Saga (Sonic 3 & Knuckles), to the Sonic Adventure adaptation. Meanwhile there where some guest appearances from the cast from Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Shining Force, and Decap Attack which all gained a following by fans. Then there where the original creations from the STC with the likes of Pirate S.T.C. and Megadroid. You will be able to find all of these eventually for download in the comics section.

 

What is Sonic Mag - B.D. Jeux Video?

Some of the early Sonic the Comic stories were translated and released in France under the name of Sonic Mag which was release monthly. Unfortunately Sonic Mag only lasted 6 issues, and only one special edition was released. Unlike the UK version multi part stories were normally released all in one issue meaning there were only two or three stories per issue. All extra content from these issues was written specifically for Sonic Mag.
