Coming in May, 2015, Archie Comics will be releasing a Free Comic Book Day prelude to Sonic and Mega Man: Worlds Unite. As per tradition, it's a flip book combining content from both the Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog series, acting as a primer for impending crossover event. Here's the solicitation:
"Worlds Unite: PRELUDE" - It's TWO free comic books in ONE! Just in time for the start of the ALL-NEW epic Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man crossover event, "Worlds Unite," comes a primer issue exclusively for Free Comic Book Day! The road to "Unite" began in the history-making "Worlds Collide" storyline, continued in 2013's "DAWN OF X" storyline, and once again our heroes must meet-Mega Man's journey chronicled on one side, and Sonic the Hedgehog's on the other! This is the must-have primer for the biggest comic book event of 2015-as two video game icons must come together... or risk dying alone! Featuring art from both Sonic and Mega Man comic book fame!

Also, wait until we reach Issue 276 of Sonic the Hedgehog, THEN we'll talk.
This is the issue where they beat the snot out of Ken Penders!?Delete
"The biggest comic book event of 2015", another crossover to reinvigorate low sales?ReplyDelete
It's going to be a REAL slow year for comics, I guess.
@Prof. Megaman: I think you may be reading too much into this. Archie has (for reasons they know) decided to adopt the Marvel/DC approach to crossovers, except they chose to have it every year rather than have it every month of the year. Whether its a good thing or something that gets old is a matter, but to say this is just to boost low sales is one thing any troll can say; Have actual sales figures to back them up is another thing. You may not find enjoyment in the Archie comics run, but even I (a comic reader who hasn't read a Marvel/DC issue since "The Death of Superman" & "Maximum Carnage") know better than to assume too much.Delete
Woo! Ryan Jampole! He's just the best! :DReplyDelete
