Worlds–and More Variant Covers–Collide

Today, the comic book oriented website Comic Book Resources released the first preview for Sonic Universe #52, which lands square in the middle of the Mega Man and Sonic crossover arc dubbed Worlds Collide.

This issue marks part five of the 12 part series.  It will be out in May.  Sonic, Tails, Mega and Proto Man explore the Skull Egg Zone while the combined power of Eggman and Dr. Wily unleashes the next big attack.  Ian Flynn penned the script, and there are three variant covers that will be available, with Patrick Spaziante having a hand in all of them.  The main cover holds some references to Sonic Adventure in the typeface, so keep holding on to that faith, Adventure series fans.

Take a look at those three covers following Archie’s formal synopsis.
