The comic name is a reference to the song of the same name sung by A2 in Shadow The Hedgehog. A welcome return to all things ‘plot’ after a little absence. This comic is somewhat political, as it makes comment of people’s definition of what Freedom and Democracy are. In some ways you could say it references events in Russia, America, Iraq, the UK, Europe, Zimbabwe, the Congo, Africa… need I continue? 🙁 It also serves the purpose of repositioning Shadow as the star of the comics. With the passing of the Ragnarok trilogy Sonic had become more of the central character. This is of course the complete opposite of the normal Sonic Wrecks scheme. It was prudent to do that though, as with Metal Sonic’s rise to power he had to beat Sonic. Which he did. Thus the occupation IS Sonic’s fault as he failed, so when the others accuse him they are of course right. You may notice, going back to Ragnarok, that Metal Sonic did not get his by Shadow’s chaos spear – that was deliberate. So this comic sets up Shadow as the ‘hero’. Sonic as the ‘out of favour’ character and also boosts Amy to her role as head of the New Freedom Fighters. This sub-storyline for Amy now starting to pan-out had been planned for well over a year and a half(!) Disclaimer time! Poor Rouge, more insinuations about her, er, integrity. But she’s at least getting lines, right Rouge fans? 42 is of course the answer to everything according to The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. Sonic Wrecks has the strength of ten tigers apparently… an ability called upon (normally) by the purple-clad ghost who walks – The Phantom.
