Trivia: Sonic the Comic
- Creator Backlash: Writer Nigel Kitching has shown dislike for Amy Rose's development in the comic (which was actually due to Executive Meddling insisting on having a more suitable female role model), resenting not having the freedom to develop her and making her a Flat Character compared to her male friends.
- Executive Meddling: The reason for Amy being changed into a tomboy. And the reason that the series went fully reprint. Technically, Amy as a tomboy was supposed to be a part of her nature in the games, but the comics emphasized it far more. It's often considered a good change. But the original writer was allowed to write the Adventure arc, so she went back to her old self. She notably didn't fight much, if at all, in that arc and mainly just comforted and gawked a lot. Any negativity towards this direction was less towards turning her into a tomboy and more the writers were directly asked to make Amy the most mature and least flawed member of the team (and of course, completely desposing of her crush on Sonic). It's especially ironic considering how similar their original rendition of Amy was to how the games would later develop her.
- No Export for You: The comics were only released in their home Europe.
- Old Shame: Mark Millar wrote the first half-dozen or so issues of STC, and for a long time he insisted that he only took the job to pay for his wedding. In this video, he apologises for inflicting his issues upon us.
- What Could Have Been: After Sonic the Comic went reprint-only, writer Nigel Kitching posted some of his intended ideas for stories on the STC mailing list - here and here for example. Some of those ideas were later adopted by the STC-Online Fan Web Comics.
