The “No Holds Barred” Preview
We’re getting toward the end of the twelve part Worlds Collide part, the much touted Archie Comics project that sees the main characters of the Sonic and Mega Man worlds crossover to defeat the combined power of Doctors Eggman and Wily.
In part 10, as chronicled in Mega Man #27, Dr. Light is literally in a free-fall. After a quick rescue, the epic battle between universes continues as Sonic and Mega Man turn their sights onto the big prize: The Wily Egg. Ian Flynn penned the script. Ben Bates, Gary Martin, John Workman, and Matt Herms handled interior art, with Herms joining Spaz for the cover art. Spaz alone is responsible for the variant sketch cover.
Both covers, as well as the first five pages of Mega Man #27 are available in the gallery below courtesy of Flickering Myth, following Archie’s formal synopsis.
