Sasha explaining the papers' surge in popularity, from Sonic the Hedgehog #144.

The Knothole News is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog and its spin-off comic series published by Archie Comics. It was a newspaper publisher which released papers in Knothole.


The organization's paper provided its citizens with various details of the goings-on on Mobius. One of its most popular features was a write-in column maintained by Sally Acorn under the alias Aly. "Dear Aly" was an opportunity for the people of Knothole—though young women were the most common contributors—to write in about their romantic problems.[1]


  • In Sonic the Hedgehog #3, there was another newspaper called the "Knothole Inquisitor" that Sonic and Rotor published an article in about Sally's changing color from blonde to brunette titled "Princess Dye!"
