Perfect for fans new and old, Sonic Super Digest collects tons of comic stories, coloring pages, bonus content, and features an all-new cover by Sonic Artist Supreme Tracy Yardley! Get SUPER!
On an earlier version of the cover, a ring featuring Knuckles appeared below the Chaotix. According to Jon Gray, this was removed simply to make room for the barcode. This removed art was instead used as interior art on the "Nature Notebook" segment.
After just two issues, this issue would end up being the last to feature most of the bonus features. Specifically the introduction and index pages, Nature Notebook, Global Gateway, and Endless Arcade. The specially-made data files would make their final appearance in the next issue.
Like Sonic Super Special Magazine #6, the content of this issue was given a noticeably overhaul due to the legal case between Ken Penders and Archie Comics at that point. Original solicits promised the last two parts of the "Return to Angel Island" arc being included, but those were cut. The stories included where those that did not feature Ken Penders characters. Additionally, Knuckles' character profile appeared as rewritten to imply that Knuckles had never met his people, the profile on the Chaotix makes no mention of Julie-Su and Saffron Bee, and a map of Angel Island refers to certain locations in vague terms: the ruins of Echidnaopolis are labeled as "City Ruins".
Ironically, this issue still included "Invaders from Beyond" which featured Shade the Echidna and the Nocturnus Clan: characters a group who are currently caught up in a semi-related legal case with Ken Penders for allegedly being derived from Penders' characters.
