Archie Comics have been hinting at a Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog crossover. Fans at San Diego Comic Con had a chance to hear the news first during the Archie Comics panel. April 2013 with issues #24 of Mega Man will begin the crossover with our beloved hedgehog. Here’s how:
Rather than just an entire new separate mini-series, the 12 issue crossover will cover four consecutive issues of Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sonic Universe. Although the details are slim on just how exactly the two stories will coincide, it does keep fans interested. The Mega Man series of comics has followed the stories of the original NES games rather closely, but the Sonic the Hedgehog series, with has been an Archie Comics staple for going on 20 years now, has very much developed its own story that shys away from the games, and even includes original characters that can only be found in the comics.
One thing we are promised of for sure is – there will be a lot of action and humor, especially in the way that Dr. Robotnik and Dr. Wily interact with one another. But to be honest, that is not surprising in the least considering that they are both two evil mad scientists with mechanical robots who face similar problems with blue protagonists.
