Here are the Covers for Archie's Mega Man/Sonic Crossover

Kotaku has just posted a new interview with artist Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante on Archie’s upcoming crossover between the universes of Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. Not a lot of new info is revealed, but we do get a nice look at the covers for the initial issues(Sonic Universe #51) and part 3 (Sonic the Hedgehog #248). Gorgeous, no? You have Spaz to thank for this!

Head over to Kotaku to see a third cover! Thanks to Mega Man Monthly for the tip.


  1. The only problem I have is Dr Wily with no eyebrows. I hope they fiz that before release =P

  2. Wily, why u shave your eyebrows?

    Hm, looks like the crossover is considered to be part of the StH comic series rather than the MM one. I guess that's okay, especially if the StH comic series sells more then MM's.

  3. @Dr. Jerk

    It runs in three titles, Mega Man, Sonic and Sonic Universe with three parts each month for four months.

  4. MegaMan's standing stance is a PERFECT rendition of the one he uses in both MvC's.

    It would've been even cooler if they used Sonic's from SONIC THE FIGHTERS.

  5. jeje que pasó con las cejas del dr. wily? xD

  6. What's with the Marvel Vs Capcom styled cover? O.o

  7. Well, touché, Archie. I didn't think I was going to pick up any issues from Sonic Universe for some time. Apparently I was wrong.

    Gotta' say, totally worth it. This is a crossover made in Heaven!

  8. Time for me to eat some more crow. XD After all this time complaining, I am now actually looking foward to this crossover, mostly out of curiousity. Also, all the complaining in the world isn't going to change a thing, so I might as well enjoy what is given. :)

  9. Yay! Now Ian Flynn gets to bang both of his action figure sets together and call it a story...

    This tried & tired concept of story arcs spanning across multiple titles is one of the cheapest tricks the comic industry has for boosting monthly sales.

    If they want more people to buy their comics, they try something a little more avant garde: Like paying for better writers and artists rather than hiring fans for scale.

    Sure, I'm mildly curious about a Megaman/Sonic crossover, but I'm just wondering if I should indulge this promotion or simply wait for the inevitable graphic novel. Either way, I'm more pessimistic than anything.

  10. @SuB-versive: So let's see here:

    1) You're rejecting WWC solely because it's a comic book crossover, and writing the entire thing off as a promotion and not an actual story.

    2) You imply that fans can never be good artists or writers, seemingly without considering that it might be a good idea to hire someone who actually cares about your book and the series attached to it, and so will be more familiar with the story and characters.

    ...So I would say to give WWC a chance and don't nitpick it to shreds (as I suspect you'll do).
