“It's true to the source. We worked out a five page story that introduces our audience to the world of the game and tease a few of the crucial story elements…fans can then play the adventure for themselves by picking up the game.”

Said Flynn, who worked with the artist Tracy Yardley.

The issue 219 had began to celebrate Sonic's 20th Anniversary for next year (2011).

Today, it provides for a virtually bespoke ordering service due to the thousands of configurations available through Bentley's expansive colour and trim catalogue.”
