|Sonic the Hedgehog|
"Heroes," Part One. It's Team Freedom vs. Team Metal! Elias Acorn may no longer be king, but he's still a symbol of hope in Dr. Eggman's eyes - and that just won't do! As Dr. Eggman launches a two-pronged assault, Sonic and Team Fighters must save Elias from a deadly assassin - his own sister! Featuring a brand new painted cover by Greg Horn!
- Sonic's cover appearance bears a strong resemblance to his official artwork in Sonic Generations and Sonic Heroes.
- On the Sonic Spin column, a pun was made of the Spongebob Squarepants theme song, as it said "Are ya ready for editoral commentry, kids? AYE AYE Captain!"
