I wasn't planning on doing this until tomorrow but oh well.. the bad news is some of the pages aren't great cause of the spine of the book and stuff but there you go. If you want to buy it, go and buy it.. in fact, i'm thinking of putting up a poll on if people want quick-access Amazon links to the games and books and stuff we display on his site. But probebly not yet..<br /><br />Anyway.. Book 4, Sonic the Hedgehog in Castle Robotnik, has the sample up now. It's the final book in the Novel series and it returns to the First book in many ways.. It also leaves on some what of a cliff hanger in the way it sets up for the next book, which never happens and it was clean, no book was planned. Oh well.. Sonic takes a little time to lookin into the world of classic horror movies. Enjoy!
Okay.. it seams the information on issue 7 that said it came out in July probebly wasn't talking about THAT issue, but the comic starting in July.. this seams comfirmed by one thing said on the cover of Issue 1.. So i have updated the release Dates to deal with that. Also, i have semi-comfirmed that there was 16 Issues, probebly 1 issue conversion of the Poster Mag and one issue omnibus.. I need to double check them and then put up something.
Information on the final STC reprint i know about, only found out the company name today, Rizzoli Egmont.. Yep, another part of the great european Company Egmont (which do have a US brand this days). I know about up to issue 4 and only have a cover for issue 4.. Any people here have more or know something? I'm running into alot of brick walls over this.
I was just givin some information on the german STC.. and there might be problems.. information i have for issue 9 might not be right.. that is might be the omnibus.. and it seams the comic was banned cause the german was really bad (as if the translators couldn't speak german themselves).. so since it was for kids, they banned the comic and stopped it.. not the worst idea..
I have done a few things today.. I have comfirmed up to issue 10 of Sonic Der Comic and have gotten the list of what Sonic storys are in about 3 issues of it, isn't that nice?<br /><br />The new frame layout is working and has been checked on IE and FF so that's good and all done and i have had to tweak the intro page cause it wasn't displaying on FF right.. Thanks to SonKnuck for FF testing ^_^<br /><br />I'm looking into speeding up 2 little things of problems.. but doesn't this new frame design work better? i think so and a couple of people i ask think so.. so isn't that good enought?
In an effort to keep the site looking nice and to improve things, i'm tweaking stuff.. you should notice (if it's currently there, which it should be) that now instead of the internal scrolling for the frame, you just have the outside scrolling.. looks nicer? maybe.. See what you guys think.. I'll tweak a couple of more things around to make the place look nicer too..
Added cover of bastei's Issue 1 and issue 7.. Comfirmed up to 7 issues (i believe it might have gone for atlest 12.. i'm trying to comfirm that).. i also know they did a paperback omibus collection which was probebly alot of differnet titles but they did a Sonic der comic one (it has to be alot of different titles.. no way this is issue 1002!) but i'm trying to get more information on that range first.
Added Cover for bastail's Sonic #4 and Tournon-egmont's #1.. also got a bit more formation.. some of which i need to comfirm and check. I'm kinda waiting to hear from a couple of people that might be able to help out. Isn't this all fun and games? But again, you reason you see SOO many updates like this on one day is cause i update as soon as i got stuff done! So you gotta love it ^_^ It isn't an idle boast when the site intro page say this is the largest classic Sonic Site in england.. and after some research, i could make an idle boast that is is the biggest in the world, but i can't prove that... i have proven it is in england though.. hey, newspapers! Stop picking on others that do smaller sites then mine and look at me for once!
More comic updates.. I have added information on a Dutch print of STC called 'Sonic magazine'.. While having lists of what storys are in the first 3 issues may seam like alot, it was a mixture of work to get that much and i have no clue what companyed printed it at the moment.. Oh well.
