Tales Of The Great War - In The Beginning - PreludeEdit
Tails and Amy Rose enter the Mobotropolis Library, where they meet Jeremiah, the grandson of a Mobian writer named Kirby. They open a book about the beginning of Mobius, where first light came down from the heavens, and then life evolved. After a matter of time, a visionary named Alexander recruited other Mobians to pool their knowledge, creating the Kingdom of Acorn. Alexander was crowned king of the city, which was named Mobotropolis.
- Sonic's new look is based on his updated video game design for Sonic Adventure, and all other games there after. This was written into the story after SEGA demanded that all Sonic media update Sonic with this design. Sonic has kept this in the comic series ever since.
- To correspond with the main story being told in reverse order, the entire issue had most of its contents put in backwards order. The very first page started with Sonic Grams—usually at the back of the comic—followed by the letters, fan art, and pin-up. Next came the back-up story, followed by the main story.
