"Sonic The Human"
Writer: Nigel Kitching

Shock! Horror! Sonic and Tails have been caught by Robotnik – but Sonic suddenly wakes in an Earth bed, to find himself a human teenager!

Hillyer proves to be a lot more adept at drawing humans than he is at drawing hedgehogs.

"The Nameless Zone – Part Two"
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Dave Windett & John M. Burns

It appears that Trogg, unlike Tails` neighbours, can recognise that the young fox doesn`t want to fight. The villain is defeated more by sheer luck than anything else: being forced to surrender or plunge into oblivion from the Dimension Bridge, since the fox can fly away when his sword accidentally slices one of its ropes.

But Tails still returns home a hero, much to his annoyance.

Having proved conclusively that he can`t last five minutes without Sonic. And nothing else. Oh, tell us something we don't know! This series – complete with the removal of Tails to a far more fantastic setting – was meant to establish something different for the little fox. And defeating a villain by tripping over his own feet doesn`t exactly present this in a clear light.
