I always thought Sonic looked fugly in this issue. He looks cute as a regular boy but as a humanization of Sonic he’s horrible. Also why does he look like a 9 year old?

AMOSTC Comment: This story is easily in my bottom five Sonic-universe stories that STC ran.  It’s just turgid and a prime example of the crap stories STC was rife with in that first year.  It got so much better, thank God.

I love this story.  Issues 41 and 42 are real highlights of STC’s golden period, a wonderful Christmas present to the readers.  And Carl Flint’s art is just super and suits Sonic down to the ground- many of his covers are among the most iconic in STC history.

But what the holy hell is up with Amy’s head/neck?
