First Look: Worlds Collide / Sonic #249, Mega Man #26

by February 6, 2013

What to Expect Come Late May/Early June

The arc is still quite a ways off from making it into the hands of devoted Sonic and Mega Man comic readers, but Archie continues to roll out early previews for its much anticipated Worlds Collide arc.

On Monday, two more reveals were made.  The first is for Sonic #249, part six of the arc, from Newsarama.com.  The second, from Kotaku, is for what we believe is Mega Man #26 if we’re doing the math correctly.  That will document part seven of the twelve part series.

We only have a text preview for the former.  That is below, with covers following that in our gallery.
