- Flash Forward: A sneak peek at the upcoming "Panic in the Sky" story arc in Sonic the Hedgehog #284-#287.
- Unlike previous Sonic the Hedgehog Free Comic Book Day issues, this one is a digest-sized book, reprinting various stories from the Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Universe series.
- This is the first Sonic the Hedgehog Free Comic Book Day special since the 2012 issue not to be a flip-book sharing space with content from the Mega Man comic book series.
