For this comic's titular heroine, see Sally Acorn.

Princess Sally (also known as Sonic the Hedgehog Presents: Princess Sally) is a three-issue Sonic the Hedgehog spin-off comic series published by Archie Comics. It is the first mini-series in the comic's history and is centered around the leader of the Freedom Fighters: Sally Acorn.

The series introduced the re-occurring character Geoffrey St. John and his group, the Rebel Underground. It also introduced the group that would later become the Substitute Freedom Fighters. Additionally, the series introduced Robotnik's Auto Automatons, which would be used throughout the series. Original printings of this series are hard to find, and the entire series was reprinted in Sonic Select Book Seven.

Not much is known about the development of the miniseries, but the Princess Sally comic was prompted by Sega to test the market for a new series of games (and possibly a new TV series) based around Sally as the main character. Due to this, the comic was well-delayed, as they continued to write and rewrite the story.

Ken Penders and Michael Gallagher had originally pitched two alternate storylines for the miniseries. The first pitch revolved around an alternate origin for Alicia Acorn. Sally would discover that her mother was roboticized and was currently leading an underground civilization. Had the plot come to fruition, the Robian Alicia would've gone on to become a reoccurring threat to both the Knothole Freedom Fighters and Dr. Robotnik. The second pitch involved Sally and Bunnie Rabbot doing a "Thelma and Louise" and heading off on a road trip to stop a threat that had come about on the other side of Mobius.

List of issues


Although the comic had critical success, the comic met with little commercial reception. The comic was intended to draw more girls into the Sonic franchise but marketed in the same channels as was the main Sonic series, a "boys" comic. It was due to this perceived unpopularity that Archie writer Ken Penders took Sally out the comics in Sonic the Hedgehog #47 by killing her off although she was ultimately revived in Sonic the Hedgehog #50.
