Other features


Concept artwork of Erazor Djinn included with the Secret Rings story.

  • Concept Art: A page featuring the official SEGA concept art for the character Erazor Djinn.


  • This is the first book to reprint stories from the Post-Super Genesis Wave timeline.
  • This is notably the first time that the Sonic and the Secret Rings comic has been physically released in paper format.
  • The controllers that Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are holding seems to be a DUALSHOCK 2 controller. Meanwhile, the controllers that Shadow and Rouge are holding is an Xbox 360 controller.
  • Evidence exists suggesting that the line-up of stories was changed before the final release. Early solicits hinted at "This Island Hedgehog" (Sonic the Hedgehog #13) and "Sonic Adventure 2" (Sonic the Hedgehog #98) being included in the book. The inclusion of the former was backed up when an updated cover featuring credits where released, which included Ken Penders, who wrote said story. In the end, all stories were those from Ian Flynn's run.
  • All stories included in this book are part of what the game Sonic Generations considered the "Modern Era" (the games from Shadow the Hedgehog and beyond.)
    • Strangely, the only video game adaption from this era not to appear in the book is the Sonic Riders 2-parter.
      • This is the second time the 2-parter has failed to appear in a book, after previously being confirmed to appear in Best of Sonic the Hedgehog Villains, when it ultimately did not.
  • Two of the stories in this book, Sonic Jump and Sonic Dash were originally published just two months prior in their respective Sonic Super Special Magazine and Sonic Super Digest issues: the shortest original print to graphic novel reprint gap in Archie Sonic history.
