Other features

  • Forward by Ian Flynn


  • The front cover artwork for this volume is the same as the one for Sonic Super Digest #6.
  • Two stories from the first volume are omitted from this collection: the "Order from Chaos" 2-parter and "Endgame: For the Whom the Bell Tolls".
  • One of the pin-up images in the book is the cover art of the cancelled Knuckles Archives Volume 6.
  • The remaining stories in the book that were not included in the first two released volumes are assumed to be from the cancelled volume three. This is based on the fact that said book would've focused on Sonic's rivals, and the stories in question seem to focus on exactly that.
