On a slightly more sad note, they also had very nearly every single reprint issue I needed but someone beat me to those
Why in seven hells would you want the reprints?
Right now, because I want a full set. In the future, well, STC isn't exactly a goldmine, but all 223 issues plus all the specials and poster mags might just be worth something some day, you never know. Though I personally have no intention of selling my comics at this point in my life, especially a series I'm still collecting 17 years after I started, at the very least, it'll be something nice to give my kids.
Plus, honestly, STC was a huge part of my childhood and it'd be nice to be able to say I had them all.

It's a reference to an "arc" as such - it was used to identify a series of strips that were part of the same story, as it were. I guess it was just part of the comic design, its not really that important AFAIK.
Probably go for: STC 8, 9 (Origin of Sonic, Robotnik takes over Mobius) STC 24-28 (The Sonic Terminator) STC 33-38 (Enter Knuckles, and Robotnik destroying Sonic's secret base) STC 47-53 (Sonic and Knuckles adaptation; Countdown and Disaster) STC 53-57 (Knuckles Chaotix, and the continuation of the Metallix story from "The Sonic Terminator") STC 63-66 ("Project Brutus") STC 65- 72 (Knuckles' "Homecoming" and "The Graveyard") STC 67-72 ("Return of the Chaotix", conclusion of "The Sonic Terminator" story) STC 80-82 (Running Wild, and the start of the Knuckles World Tour of Mobius) STC 83-86 (Sonic fighting Super Sonic in the Special Zone) STC 97-100 (Count down to the 100th issue, and the conclusion of the Knuckles World Tour) STC 104-106 (Introduction of the Drakon Empire) STC 108-111 (Sonic tried in the Drakon Empire; "The Evil Empire") STC 116-118 ("Best of Enemies" and "Super Sonic: Hunter and the Hunted") STC 123-125, 127-130 ("Order and Chaos", leading to "Robotnik Reigns Supreme") STC 171-174 ("Game Over") STC 175-184 (Sonic Adventure adaptation, final new story)
There's a lot there, but often times stories last ages, or aren't touched on for a while, or even have different characters in them (like the Mettalix/ Sonic Terminator story, which starts in STC 24, and doesn't finish until 72).
Quick Question. I am a US Sonic fan interested in buying Issues of STC (sometime in the future)....what sort of Payment options does Comical Games accept. (I ask because I do not have a paypal account.)
SEGA, Archie, Fleetway..it doesn't matter...Echidna's are always the best!
