Free Comic Book Day isn't for another five months, but that's not stopping Archie Comics from announcing this: a free flip book combining content from both the Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog series. Available on May 4th, the book is designed as a primer to get people interested in the Worlds Collide story arc. Here's the solicitation:
"It’s TWO Free Comic Books in ONE! Just in time for the start of the epic Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man crossover event, “Worlds Collide,” comes a primer issue exclusively for Free Comic Book Day! Witness the journey these two epic heroes from both Sega and Capcom took to finally meet each other — Mega Man’s journey chronicled on one side, and Sonic’s on the other! This is the must-have primer for the biggest comic book event of 2013 — as video game icons Sonic and Mega Man meet for the very first time anywhere!"
Gotta love those "sprites."
