- Sonic Saga Series was first announced in an interview with IGN and Sonic the Hedgehog editor, Paul Kaminski, which was revealed in an article on their website. In that interview, Paul Kaminski stated the following about the series: "To put it into context with our other graphic novel lines, the Sonic Saga series is a modern version of the Sonic Archives collection, akin to the Sonic Universe graphic novel series in which we chronologically collect the current story arcs."
- Interestingly, even though the covers to the books include the words "Sonic Saga Series" followed by the volume number, the word "Series" and the following volume number are not included in the book title of the first volume. This article lists the numbers next to the titles to avoid any confusion.
- Each of the covers reuse cover art from an issue that is featured in the respective book. Some of the covers used have been altered slightly from their original versions: the cover to Volume 2 (taken from #169) has been mirrored, while the cover to Volume 4 (from #178) has had its background changed from blue to red.
