Background Information

  • 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.
  • 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 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 issue 1’s RI-C cover by Kieran Gates.
    • The third and final cover advertised for the volume was the cover of issue 1's Cover A by Tyson Hesse. Eventually, an even newer version was shown that included a blue border around the image, but the older one without the border was simultaneously shown for Kindle and Comixology despite Amazon showing the updated image for purchase of the physical book. Eventually, this was changed to match the final print cover.

The advertised cover with "FALLOUT!" written on it.

  • Eventually, Amazon advertised the book with the text "FALLOUT!" on it in the bottom left-hand corner. Oddly enough, this is only shown in the section for the "Paperback" version of the book and not for the "Kindle and comiXology" version of the book, which uses the final printed version of the cover.
