Qzone

The original Q Zone logo, complete with what "Q" could mean.

Q Zone was a regular feature in Sonic the Comic dedicated to helping Boomers with difficult video games. The section, manned by David Gibbon (although occasionally by Tony Takoushi at the start) featured games that received the most questions about them on the Data Strip or through Speedlines. Occasionally, a Q&A special appeared that actually posted reader questions with a brief answer. "Tips & Cheats" editions largely focused on cheat codes. There were also entire pages (and sometimes over several issues) on just one game, particularly a new one that was causing some trouble (such as Aladdin and Earthworm Jim). Occasionally, these would be "Sonic Solved!" segments for older Sonic games, largely to stop readers asking about the same games all the time.

Most editions of Q Zone had a "Game Genie update" that listed some Game Genie codes for selected games.

Sonic the Comic Online revived the feature on three occasions. The first two were manned by Stuart Gipp, one of which was a Sonic Mega Collection. Iain Stewart took over in Issue 246 to give a rundown on Sonic the Hedgehog's role in Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
