Sonc Archives 21 collects issues #79-#82 of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book.
The solicit is a reference to Open Your Heart of Sonic Adventure (There's thunder, rain and lightning! There's danger, waters rising! Clamor, sirens wailing!).
This volume contains a few noticeable alterations to the artwork of the comics:
On the two-page opening in the story "City of Dreams...", where Amy was shown with her knee bulging through her skirt, was edited to remove her knee, presumably due to her knee's unintentionally suggestive placement.
In the story "Door to the Past", the incorrect illustration of Tikal when she first appears before Knuckles was changed so that she appeared in her normal design. Additionally, all misspelled instances of her name have been corrected as well.
In the story "Double-Crossed Circuits" Amy's design was tweaked slightly to omit any inconsistencies
In the story "The Discovery - A Sonic Adventure Tie-In", the two speech bubbles of a Shadowbot talking when Sonic and Nate Morgan discover Eggman's plans as seen in the original print, has for some reason been removed. This does not impact the story though.
