Facts and Questions

What's a fanzine?

A fanzine (or zine for short) is a collaborative collection of artworks and/or writing focusing on a fandom, a character or a theme.Our zine is focused on Silver the time-traveling Hedgehog, and the many alternate futures he'll come across! It will be divided in five different themes:

Utopia - A future too good to be true
Dystopia - A future where everything went wrong
Post-apocalypse - A disaster-stricken future
Memories - Looking back to what once was
Rebuilding - Building a new world from what is left

How can I get the zine?

Kaleidoscopic Absolution will be available to download for free!

What kind of art will be featured in the zine?

Kaleidoscopic Absolution will be a multimedia zine! We would love to feature non-traditional art and writing pieces, as well as music, animation, minigames... The sky's the limit!

Which characters are allowed?

This zine will focus on Silver. His friends are allowed to show up in the zine.This zine won't feature original characters / fan characters, only canon characters from the Sonic universe.Because of the AU elements the canon characters can diverge from how they are depicted depending on the timeline and how they are affected.

Are ships allowed?

This zine will contain Silver and his relationship to his friends but will not feature any romantic relationships.

I've got another question!

About the Zine

This zine explores the concepts of the alternative futures.Think about unique ways to depict possible futures and how Silver would deal with them.



A future too good to be true

Imagine a world without strife or disasters. A place where Silver and his friends could live happily in peace…Without the responsibility to become a hero, how would Silver have lived in a world like that?


A future where everything went wrong

Imagine a world with a devastated environment or an iron-fisted government, or maybe caught up in an endless war…When it seems like everyone has lost all hope, how would Silver navigate the world at its worst?


A disaster-stricken future

Imagine Silver surviving Iblis’ reign, or a zombie apocalypse, or even a perpetual ice age…In a future so ruined to the point it could not recover, what would Silver's life look like?


Looking back to what once was

Remember what time periods Silver has traveled to in order to fix the future. From Sonic’s present to far far in the past…How did Silver's travels affect his friends and himself, do they even remember it happening at all?


Building a new world from what is left

Even a time traveler can’t prevent every disaster, but that wouldn’t stop Silver from trying to do good in the world with what he got!After all his efforts to save these futures, in what way can Silver move on and help rebuild the world?
