First Look: Worlds Collide / Mega Man #25

Along With…Yup, Another Cover

Archie continues its heavy push for the Sonic and Mega Man Worlds Collide arc.  Today, AOL’s Comic Alliance released a first preview for part four in twelve part arc, slated for the 25th Mega Man issue.

By this point, we’re already at the second bout between Sonic and Mega Man, which is an away game for the former.  But Eggman and Dr. Wily are up to their old tricks, and it appears they’re enjoying themselves, even enjoying the evil breeze on a bicycle built for two in a special cover.  How either doc can balance on it we will never know.

Take a look at that special variant cover drawn by Spaz, as well as a formal synopsis of Mega Man #25, below.
