“The Spice Maidens – Part Six”
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Nigel Dobbyn
Captain Tiberius receives word from one of his crew that it’s impossible to lock a signal onto Captain Plunder’s ship while a security shield protects it. But Tiberius knows Plunder’s luck can’t last and he will get revenge for when Plunder betrayed him while they served under Black Beak. Back at Plunder’s ship Zorabel has set out two chests out, one containing treasure and one that’s empty. She says that if Plunder picks the chest with the treasure in he can keep it, but if he picks the empty chest he gets nothing. Despite his bad luck Plunder somehow manages to pick the right chest, so he drops Zorabel and her daughters off back at Scourge Bay before taking the treasure. However, once they’ve left Plunder trips, spilling the treasure over the edge of the ship. This causes the security shield to be disrupted and Tiberius to get a lock on Plunder’s ship. Once he’s shot them down Tiberius leaves Plunder and his crew stuck on a desert island.

“Spot of Bother”
Writer: Lew Stringer
Artist: Roberto Corona
Amy and Tekno are making sure all the local citizens have gotten to safety before they fight some of Robotnik’s new badniks when they notice one person isn’t running at all, in fact he’s watching the badniks with binoculars! The girls manage to fight them off but the guy they saved, Norris Wimple, starts ranting and raging that they’ve ruined his day’s badnik spotting. Later that evening Norris comes up with a fool proof plan to get more badniks to come, by dressing up in Sonic costume. Amy and Tekno spot him again, but think no badnik would be that dumb. Apparently they’re wrong when one does mistake Norris for Sonic and kidnaps him. Amy manages to blast the badnik with her crossbow and Norris decides badnik spotting isn’t his thing – he’d much rather measure the boot marks of famous sports player…
