"The Hidden Zone"
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Carl Flint

Stricken with amnesia, Sonic lands in the middle of a community of fugitives – unaware that Robotnik`s legions are following him to their secret location! The race is on for Sonic to recover his identity before the settlement is overwhelmed.

Flint`s competent artwork seems a very poor substitute after a concentrated burst of Elson.

And whose idea was that closing joke?

Note to the perplexed: `Take That` were the first of the great British `boy bands`, topping the charts from around 1990 to nineteen 1996, and acting as the launchpad for Robbie Williams. I understand that they had some success in the States, but never the prolonged cult status that they enjoyed here.

And certainly not amongst the prepubescent and early teen boys who made up Sonic's target market even then. They reformed in 2006 (minus Robbie) and're currently at least as big as they used to be.
