Babylon Rising Part One: Remembrance
- The front cover for this volume uses the same cover as for Sonic the Hedgehog #275.
- All of the reprinted stories were already reprinted in Sonic Super Digest from Sonic Super-Sized Comics Digest #11-Sonic Super Digest #15, most of which are in roughly the same order.
- Sonic Comics Spectacular: Speed of Sound is noticeable for being the first Archie trade paperback to reprinting two complete four-full-issue story arcs: "Treasure Team Tango" from Sonic Universe #21-#24, and "Champions" from Sonic the Hedgehog #268-#271, the former being the only place as of now to read the arc in its entirety outside of its own compilation. Due to Sonic the Hedgehog Volume 5: Champions going unreleased, this book is the only place in which all four chapters are available in a single book.
- In "Babylon Rising Part One: Remembrance", a line in which Rotor mentions Elias Acorn is edited to remove said reference.
- While this book hinted at Sonic Comics Spectacular becoming a series, no other volumes were released.
