It's Sonic's birthday, and he's just been presented with the newly- refurbished, original Freedom Fighter's base, first shown way back in Sonic #1! It doesn't take long for the festivities to become fearsome, as Bark and Bean crash the party on Robotnik's orders! Meanwhile, Rogue and Evil Sonic both have their eyes on pilfering the Master Emerald. It's a birthday "celebration" the Blue Blur will never forget! Featuring a birthday blastin' cover by party favorin' fan-fave, Spaz!
