Preview Pages for Worlds Collide #4 on IGN

The preview for the latest  “Worlds Collide” issue is now available for your viewing pleasure over at IGN. For those of you who might have forgotten what this act is all about, here’s the solicitation from a few months:

"It’s Sonic versus Mega Man — Round Two! Celebrate 25 issues of Mega Man with the throwdown brawl to end all throwdown brawls! The Blue Bomber has the home field advantage this time — can Sonic keep up in this unfamiliar city? Meanwhile, Drs. Eggman and Wily make their boldest move yet in their master plan! This milestone issue marks the dramatic conclusion to the first act in the biggest crossover story of 2013! Featuring a stunning gatefold cover by Sonic/Mega Man art legend Patrick Spaziante, and a special “E.F.F. (aka Evil Friends Forever) variant” featuring Drs. Eggman and Wily on a (presumably evil) bicycle built for two!"

Mega Man #25 hits newsstands tomorrow.


  1. Can't wait!

    I wonder how Sonic's big eyes don't get dry with the wind when running fast. But meh, how he can run fast in the first place?

  2. I know Sonic The Hedgehog has been reduced to an unoriginal pull-string doll since 1999, but now he's reduced to stealing other peoples' quotes.

    One belongs to Michelangelo, the other belongs to Megaman X. Can you spot them?

    Maybe Sonic's not the unoriginal one here. Spell: F-L-Y-N-N...

  3. @Prof. Mega Man

    You missed the Egoraptor one.

  4. Crap, I'm behind on these. I wish the nearest comic book shop wasn't so far away from where I live. Oh well, seems like it'll be a pretty good read. I guess I'll just catch up with it through comixology.

    @Anon 2: Don't feed the trolls!

  6. @Anon 3:

    I need no encouragement.
    If anything, you're fueling my actions far more than he.

    And who knows, Anon 2 just might agree with me. You'd like to believe that I'm the only person on the planet who dislikes the Archie comics, but that's fortunately untrue.

    Moreover, my initial post was far more substantial than yours, so who among the two of us appears trollish?

  7. @ Pro. Megaman 2.0

    Given that Archie Comics Mega Man is a tie-in comic book series that was made to introduce children (that are otherwise unfamiliar with the video game series it's based on) into reading comic books, you can do a lot worse.

    Anyway, from what I've read from the World's Collide series, Sonic appears to be identical to his video game counterpart. That is, he's incredibly laid-back, but is rather cocky & rarely takes anything seriously.

    And perhaps I'm an idiot, but I didn't catch the quotes that are taken from a turtle that studies ninjutsu & consumes processed Italian food, or a mechanically advanced emotional wet blanket.
