“All Out War” Begins Inside
Next week, the Archie Sonic comics hit a milestone. The publication has been around 20 years and 250 issues. Issue 250 falls in the middle of the current Worlds Collide arc, the much touted crossover with the Mega Man series.
Though the special chibi variant covers are cute, there’s nothing cute about the epic battle about to begin between the covers. Sonic, Mega Man, and several heroes from both sides are about to take on the Robot Masters–all of them. Can they infiltrate the Wily Egg?
Take a look at all the covers and first five pages for Sonic #250 in the gallery below, courtesy of Kotaku, following Archie’s formal synopsis.
