Trivia

  • This issue was initially going to be released on 11 March 2020, but was soon moved to 25 March 2020 instead. It was later moved to 18 March 2020 and then moved back to 25 March 2020.
  • Abigail Starling was originally solicited to do cover B, but the final version of cover B was done by Jonathan Gray instead.
  • Cover B features a number of references and Easter eggs:
    • According to Jonathan Gray, though the group are playing on the Dreamcast, he was not allowed to use the swirl logo due to trademark issues. Instead, he used colored starbursts.[4]
    • It was Reggie Graham's idea to color some of the controllers transparent.
    • On cover B, it is implied that the group are playing Sonic Shuffle on the Dreamcast.[5]
    • The banner held up by the Flickies is a reference to the former tagline for the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series that was published by Archie Comics.[6]
    • Omega can be seen holding up a mini flag bearing the symbol of the Black Arms.
    • The leaderboard background is the stage select screen from Sonic Adventure 2.[6]
    • The group appear to be playing some version of Sonic Shuffle, which Jon dubbed "Sonic Shuffle 2".[6]
    • Big can be seen using the Dreamcast fishing rod controller, a nod to his interest in fishing.
    • The Flickies were layered due to the logo as Sega does not like the logo covered.[6]
  • Jon had actually prepared cover B first before his covers for issues #24 and #25.[7]
