“Badniks Bridge – Part Two”
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Cassanovas

Amy and Johnny arrive just in time to catch Sonic as he plummets from the bridge, having spun his way out of confinement. Borrowing the plane`s tool kit, he removes the wheels friom the thruster`s transporter. Amy then issues the coup de grace with her crossbow, detonating the mine from a safe distance and incinerating the whole caboodle.

One of those rare stories which overtly shows how badly the gang is actually needed…

“The Carnival Night Conspiracy – Part Six”
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Richard Elson

Knuckles removes the badniks by simply burrowing along the foundations of the Carnival Night Zone, causing it to crash to Mobius before the visitors can enter it. The Marxios flee, leaving Knuckles to face a less-than-pleased Robotnik, whenever he should appear.

All in all, barring the strange contrast of the Marxios, an impressive debut for the enigmatic echidna. It helps that he has the best writer and artist available on the job, but the character is well-rounded and subtly different from any of the more gung-ho freedom fighters, and nothing is left either too unexplained, or explained enough to not have you wondering what`s to come.
