Sonic the Hedgehog - "The Green Eater"
In the Scrap Brain Zone, the gigantic Terra-Droid forces badnik workers to construct a new machine called the Green Eater. At a rebel hide-out in the Emerald Hill Zone, Sonic and Tails soon witness the machine's effects when the hide-out and the surrounding countryside starts melting. A bluebird explains that the Green Eater is intended to "bleed the planet dry", so Sonic rushes off to stop it.
Sonic quickly destroys the worker badniks in the Scrap Brain Zone, and gets the freed animals to help him. They are attacked by Terra-Droid. While the animals distract Terra-Droid, Sonic uses his super-speed to create a mini-tornado around the Green Eater and tear it apart, which he does. Then he turns his attentions to Terra-Droid, Spin Attacking his chest. Terra-Droid laughs it off, saying it didn't even tickle, until he realizes that Sonic actually ripped out his battery.
Still, the Emerald Hill Folk have just lost their hideout, until Sonic gets a great idea: build a new home out of Terra-Droid's casing. With a few small modifications, it's home sweet home!

Ecco the Dolphin - "Ecco the Dolphin, Part 3"
- Script: Woodrow Phoenix
- Art: Steve White
- Lettering: Tom Frame
The pterodactyl carries Ecco out of the water, but tells him not to fear: Ecco is merely being brought to the Sky-Glyph, which imparts more knowledge. The Glyphs were built by the men of Atlantis. The menace that stole the dolphins is from "beyond the skies". The Beyonders have used up their own world, but Earth's seas are still abundant. Atlantis has maps and power to defeat these beings, and Ecco is sent there next. The pterodactyl drops him back in the ocean, where he is nearly devoured by a prehistoric sea predator, but touches the Glyph just in time, and is sent back home.
The Legend of the Golden Axe - "Plague of Serpents, Part 3"
- Script: Mark Eyles
- Art: Mike White
- Lettering: Ellie de Ville
Gilius-Thunderheard is attacked by an irate red-headed dwarf girl who ensnares him with magical vines. Tyris, still wounded, tries to subdue her but Gilius calls Tyris off: the girl is Yuki-Plantcharmer, Gilius' sister. Gilius and Yuki set off to rescue Queen Silpantia-Dragontamer from Cobraxis, taking a service elevator down to Hammerynth caverns, where a bespelled Ax-Battler is still wandering aimlessly.
A snake spy informs Cobraxis (who has yet to learn anything from the Queen) that there are intruders, and is strangled for its trouble. Cobraxis sends the Wizard-Priest Viprax to capture them, which he intends to do by conjuring giant, multi-coloured lizards. Gilius and Yuki have a fight on their hands.
Decap Attack - "Starring Chuck D. Head! Part 6"
- Script: Nigel Kitching
- Art: Nigel Kitching
- Colour: John Burns
- Lettering: Steve Potter
Frank N. Stein reveals that he has completed his new creation, which he cloned from Head (who has only half a brain). It is... a Blockbusters contestant! And his mascot, a teddy bear named Winston. Utterly horrified, Max D. Cap and his minions retreat to their own castle, with the Blockbusters contestant in hot pursuit (having been convinced that Max is actually "Bob"). Max delivers one final menacing threat (which cheers up Rupert to no end), then vanishes below ground again.
Frank N. Stein, Chuck, and Head go for tea and some hobnobs, while Igor asks the new creation "What 'D' is an ancient place of imprisonment and torture?" then locks him up in one (leaving him still guessing: "'Duodenum'? 'Drain'? 'Delicatessen'?"). Igor decides to introduce the contestant to the Hot Spot... by means of a red hot poker.
The story ends with Megadroid (the spokesperson of Sonic the Comic) apologizing for such silliness and vowing to replace Decap Attack with something much more sensible.
