Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 113 was the one hundred and thirteenth issue of the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic series.



From the Freedom Fighter Files: "Cry of the Wolf"

Sonic, Sally, and Antoine are exploring a cave when the entrance seals itself off behind them. Sonic speeds ahead to check the place out but soon finds himself facing a sheer cliff. He meets back up with the others when they run into a wolf.

The wolf asks them why they decided to trespass in his domain and Sally introduces herself, explaining that they're a group of Freedom Fighters. The wolf decides to lead them out of the cave before suddenly springing a trap. The floor slides out from under them and the Freedom Fighters head tumbling deeper into the cave.

"Cry of the Wolf" - Part Two

The Freedom Fighters land in a meeting room, where Lupe introduces herself and her people as the Wolf Pack Freedom Fighters. Sally tells Lupe that they came to stop Dr. Robotnik's newest weapon and asks how Lupe kept her tribe a secret for so long. Lupe tells her that there's little left to keep secret: her entire culture was wiped away, and all they have left is a data card.

Sally gives the data card to NICOLE, who plays back the information stored inside. The data takes the form of holographic images, and Lupe explains her story. According to Lupe, Dr. Robotnik destroyed their homes and roboticized their people. He plans to stop the surviving members of the Wolf Pack from pestering him by testing his new super weapon on them.

Sonic realizes that there are probably more Freedom Fighter groups around the world like them, thinking they're the only Freedom Fighters left, and decides they need to find a way to contact them. Lupe tells Sonic that they scavenged some technology when raiding Robotnik's factories and shows him a room full of communication devices. Sonic asks if they also have firepower, and Lupe tells them they have something but they don't know how to activate it.

The Wolf Pack leads Sonic, Antoine, and Sally through the mountains to find a good position to set up their cannon. Snively arrives in a patrol craft along with a new, experimental battle-hovercraft and searches the mountainside from the Freedom Fighters. While Snively is searching, the group ducks into a cave, sets up the cannon, and aim it at the battle ship. They successfully hit their mark and begin to celebrate.

"Cry of the Wolf" - Part Three

As the rubble from the mountains falls away, it turns out that the hovercraft is completely unharmed. It retaliates, firing lasers at the Freedom Fighters. Sonic grabs a Power Ring and spins up a tornado, causing the battle ship to crash into Snively's patrol craft. Unfortunately, both ships sustain minimal damage, and Snively captures Sonic and Sally.

Snively brings them aboard his ship, only for Sonic to tie him up. Sally accesses the ship's computers and finds files on the battle ship and comes up with a plan. She has Sonic lead the battle ship into a lightning storm. The ship is struck by lightning, overloading its circuits and causing it to explode. The Wolf Pack cheers for Sonic as Lupe informs them that she's managed to make contact with other Freedom Fighter groups. Sally and the members of the various Freedom Fighter groups gather together, promising to depose Robotnik, defeat his Sub-Bosses, and reclaim Mobotropolis.

Key Events[]

  • Sonic's meets Lupe and the Wolf Pack.

Background Information[]

  • "Cry of the Wolf" is an adaptation of the eponymous Sonic SatAM episode, written by Pat Allee.
  • Jay Oliveras, Karl Bollers, and Many Hands are not given proper credits for this issue, with the story simply being "by" them. Their actual contributions to the issue are unknown, and their credits as seen on this wiki are based on credits listed for the issue on Comixology. [1]
  • This is the Many Hands' second, and final, contribution to Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog. Their work in this issue is commonly regarded as the worst art to ever be printed in the series, apart from Naugus Games where some panels didn't even have art, just dark with eyeballs or snowflakes.

Cameos & References[]

  • Ari Ram, a recurring character from the Sonic the Hedgehog animated series, makes an appearance in this issue. This would be his only appearance in the comics thus far.
  • The term "Doomsday pod" is the only deviation between this issue and the episode, seeing as in leiu of the Doomsday project in the Archieverse, the test pod of Doomsday was isolated as a single element because of Robotnik's final project in the comic was the Ultimate Annihilator.


  • Sally holds NICOLE upside-down throughout the issue.
