Other features

  • Variant Covers Gallery


  • The quote "Gotta go fast" in the solicitation for this volume is the name of the American theme song for the Sonic X anime series.
  • For unknown reasons, the variant cover gallery does not include the “B” covers for the four issues included.
  • The cover for this volume went through a number of different versions before finally settling on the final one:
    • The first cover originally advertised for the volume was the original promotional image for the series with the IDW logo removed from the top right corner.
    • The second cover advertised for the volume was a horizontally flipped version of Sonic the Hedgehog #1's RI-C cover by Kieran Gates.
    • The third cover advertised for the volume was the cover of Sonic the Hedgehog #1's A cover by Tyson Hesse.
    • The fourth and final cover was shown to included a blue border around the image of the third cover, but the older one without the border was simultaneously shown for Kindle and Comixology[2] despite Amazon showing the updated image for purchase of the physical book. Eventually, this was changed to match the final print cover.
  • In France, this volume was published on 25 October 2018 by Mana Books under the name Sonic the Hedgehog Tome 1: Le hérisson contre-attaque.
