** For some fans, the Christmas story which sees Robotnik visited by Father Christmas, who warns him that [[ForeShadowing his downfall is approaching]] and encourages him to change his evil ways, reminding him that he hasn't really benefited personally from his rulership of Mobius. Robotnik orders him to leave [[spoiler:before realizing that he was right]]: "Keep your advice, old man! I like being evil and I don't need presents! I'm in charge! I've got power! [[spoiler:I've got... I've got... I've got no friends on Christmas Day...]]"]]

** The ExecutiveMeddling that led to Amy morphing from girly-girl to tomboy was unpopular with Nigel Kitching and just as unpopular with fans. It wasn't just the idea itself (which makes for the first split between people who liked the new Amy vs people that preferred the old one) but also the GirlsNeedRoleModels reasoning behind it as she wasn't allowed to be as flawed as the male characters, thus often making her come off as rather flat and boring. Nigel Kitching was so annoyed with the change in fact that he deliberately stopped using her in his stories until the woman that made the decision (Deborah Tate) was replaced with someone else. The resultant stories by Lew Stringer (who agreed with Tate) where she tours time and space fighting evil is perhaps where the bulk of this opinion comes from as their quality varies from good to awful depending on who you ask.

** It did [[SuperpoweredEvilSide an evil Super Sonic]] waaay before SonicX and Archie. This character is also similar to VideoGame/SonicExe.

** Amy and [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom Boom Amy]] are compared sometimes due to them being similar enough {{Alternative Character Interpretation}s of Amy as even more of an ActionGirl than she normally is.

* CultClassic: It has fallen into obscurity (compared to other adaptations) post-cancelation due to being region specific and having [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes no rereleases]] however it still has a devoted fanbase.



* FanonDiscontinuity: STC had its fair amount of bad strips that fans would rather forget, such as Bravehog, The Trickster and the biggest stinker of them all; Amy's Secret Past which had no regard for continuity whatsoever. Ugh.
** Surely Bravehog was the bigger continuity criminal, totally overriding Sonic's backstory? Its art was significantly worse than Amy's Secret Past, too.
*** Ironically, those two also contradicted each other: Amy's Secret Past was an attempt to explain why she has similar slicked-together spikes as Sonic despite not having superspeed (him having obtained them during the accident which gave him this) while Bravehog showed all the hedgehogs in the past looking like Sonic.

** You shouldn't mix this comic with the [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic]] around fans of either series if you want to keep your head.
** Due to the series being surprisngly obscure the characters often get mistaken for fan-characters. Referring to them as such severely irks fans.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Despite being such a relatively obscure adaptation, Sonic the Comic introduced many concepts and aspects that were later used by future adaptations and even the games, some by coincidence and others due to the comic being inspiration to later Sonic incarnations:
** It came up with the concept of the Freedom Fighters, which SonicSatAM and the comics based on it later borrowed. In addition, some of the Freedom Fighter members from [=SatAM=] may have been inspired by the comic's characters.

* ValuesDissonance: Much of the dislike for Fleetway's characterization of Sonic comes from America, which prefers flawed yet still largely clean-cut heroes. Archie's Sonic very much follows this characterization.

** It was also the first adaptation to depict Robotnik as an evil dictator who has taken over the world. His base of operations, Metropolis Zone, might have been the basis for Robotropolis.
