Official solicitation

"Preparations for War": Enerjak, the ultimate evil is reborn! His return may result in an unlikely alliance as Sonic and Eggman consider a truce... at least one long enough to prevent the destruction of the entire planet! PLUS: "Sonic Rush Adventure": Straight from the thrilling new Sonic video game of the same name, Sonic and Tails embark on an action-packed adventure and face a mysterious new threat!


Preparations For War

High Stakes on the High Sea

Meanwhile, on another day and another adventure... A Sonic Rush Adventure adaptation follows Sonic and Tails as they have been caught in a storm and have crash landed in an unknown place. Marine the Raccoon appears and appoints Sonic and Tails as her new crew. Marine tells them that the place is Seagull Island and she is the captain of the crew. She tells that nasty group of pirates have appeared on the island and are looting while searching for treasure. Marine pulls out a Chaos Emerald, only to have it taken by Johnny. Sonic is pretty impressed with Johnny's speed but goes along with 'captain' Marine off on their new adventure.


  • This is the first appearance of Enerjak since Knuckles the Echidna #9.
  • This issue's back story features the comic tie-in for the Sonic Rush Adventure video game.
  • Marine reveals that she has obtained the Green Chaos Emerald. It is unknown how this happened, since she lives in an alternate reality, and all of the Chaos Emeralds were transported to the Special Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog #169. It is unknown if writer Ian Flynn will explain how she obtained the Chaos Emerald.
  • Sally's eyes on the fourth page are miscolored green.
  • Marine is portrayed in the adaption without an Australian accent. This is because it had yet to be finalized by Sega when the adaptation was written.[1] This is the only story to make this error, and all subsequent appearances of Marine include her Australian accent.
    • Another error that was also made as a result was that Seagull Island was actually supposed to be Seagull Beach that was located on Southern Island. This was confirmed to be true by Ian Flynn on his Ask Ian Q&A.[1]
