I got mine - was greeted at the entrance by Iron Man, and then I had to choose which 2 comics I wanted (and what flavour Chupa Chup :D). I took the Sonic one and the Star Wars/Serenity comic, which drew a nice parallel betwen Mal Reynolds and Han Solo
Spoiler: show
as well as River Tam and Chewbacca.
I always said that Captain Mal was pretty much Han Solo before he joined the Rebel Alliance. :)

The extra insight into what the other characters experience during Genesis was interesting. It raises the question of what others such as Lien-Da, Geoffrey and Naugus went through. Clearly something hit Naugus hard during Genesis.

If we where to return to the Genesis universe, I get the feeling Knuckles Chaotix will be retconned like Sega are doing, since Charmey's Genesis experience had him being in the detective agency with Espio and Vector, something which I'm sure wasn't introduced until Heroes.

And I was wondering if Julie-Su's supposedly being back in the Twilight Cage during Genesis was a reference to Sonic Chronicles?

Your recap lacks the important details, sir.

What flavor of Chupa Chup did you get?

...and, for that matter, what the heck is a Chupa Chup?

So Cream and Bunnie are cousins in the Genesis world?

Now that's interesting.

It's pretty much just those extra stories. They cover what was going on with certain characters during the re-reset back to Mobius Prime.

-Tails was flying around in the Tornado when the white light flashed.

-Knuckles was patrolling the Floating Island from the Sky Sanctuary when he caught sight of the Death Egg high in the sky. After the white flash, he's reunited with Julie-Su, who tells him that she feels as if she'd just been back in the Twilight Cage, and then Charmey shows up talking about how he had a weird dream that he was working as a detective with Vector and Espio.

-Amy was sitting on the grass arranging tarrot cards. She becomes overjoyed when the cards reveal that she is soon to meet Sonic in a magical place she's familier with (Little Planet), the cards mention "two Sonics" (Metal Sonic) but she didn't care. After the flash overcame her vision, she found herself back on board the Freedom Fighter Special opposit Geoffrey, who seemed to also be snapping out of a dreamlike state.

-A completely flesh and blood Bunnie was trapped inside an Egg prison capsule with numorous Mobini. She assures the creatures that there's a group of Mobians going around saving people, giving themselves hope. She spends most of the time worrying about her little cousin, Cream, and how she's too young to deal with all of this. After the flash, Bunnie is back co-piloting the Freedom Fighter Special, she finds herself disorientated by how it briefly felt as if her body was completely organic again.

-Rotor goes through the same stuff we saw at the end of Genesis part 4, where Sally reassures him that everything is under control. After the flash, Rotor finds himself inside his house half-undressed out of his council uniform. He remembers that he originally intended to change into his nanite suit and join the battle against the Death Egg, but he instead decides his counciling duties are more important right now.

Got my free comic yesterday. While I only managed to grab the Sonic one, I did get to meet Ben Bates! He signed my comic, and drew me Metal Sonic. Worth waiting in line for an hour. :D

Now THAT , I like . A LOT .

Thank you my dear man . Maybe this is what Ian mentioned when saying that we could go back a bit more in the Genesis world . I feel like the Genesis world is the Sega world . With the Satam cast added . That's pretty nice .

Oh and what's Amy's design ? Classic or Modern ?

It's mostly text, with a small drawing of Classic Amy on the top right corner, and a panel of Modern Amy from another issue on the bottom left.
