Featured stories

The Return of El Gran Gordo!


Chris and Chuck Thorndyke once again watch wrestling with Sonic expressing his disgust towards it. A famous wrestler, named Andes the Ginormous calls El Gran Gordo out, even though Doctor Eggman had given up the act a while ago. However, Eggman still devised a plan to deal with Andes and told Bokkun he wad needed for the job.

Sonic finds Doctor Eggman stealing sugary foods from a confectionery shop the next day. He proceeds to stop him but is caught off guard by El Gran Gordo being on T.V. from the window of a shop. Gordo accepts Andes' challenge which confuses Sonic as to how Eggman could be in two places at once. Eggman escapes and Sonic sets out to find him for answers.

El Gran Gordo begins to battle Andes the Ginormous but loses due to his lack of trickery. Sonic finds this amusing and finally spots Dr. Eggman stealing from a sugar shop. Eggman fails to quip Sonic properly, calling him a "ninny". The two battle with Eggman struggling to find the correct weapons to hit Sonic with, leading Sonic to believe that he is a fake. Once Sonic sees Eggman's large desire for candy, he recognizes the fake as Bokkun.

Meanwhile, El Gran Gordo still gets beaten by Andes but gets inspired by Chris' faith in him as a wrestler in order to beat Andes and win the belt. Sonic and the police attempt to arrest Bokkun but he escapes by spilling candy on the floor.

Sonic, Chris, and Chuck meet back up discussing their nights. A knock is heard at the door and it appears to be El Gran Gordo who asks for Sonic's help.



Races and species:




  • Bokkun disguised as Eggman stealing forty cakes and Sonic commenting “That's terrible!” is a reference to the line “When no one was looking, Lex Luthor took forty cakes. He took 40 cakes. That’s as many as four tens. And that’s terrible.” from DC's Super Dictionary.



  • This is the first Sonic X issue to have the Sonic Grams segment at the end of each issue.
