Free Comic Book Day Flips to a Crossover
This week, numerous media outlets, including Comic Book Resources, have published formal previews for the combined Sonic and Mega Man offering during Free Comic Book Day.
This year, Archie Comics is using the day to introduce readers to the Worlds Collide crossover arc. A unique flipbook format will chronicle Sonic and Mega Man’s first encounter with one another, with the blue dude on one side, and the blue blur on the other.
The prelude, as it’s being called, will be available for free on Saturday, May 4th. Take a look at the covers and some pages after Archie’s formal synopsis.
