Default Archie Comics' Mega Man and Sonic Crossover


Though I'd make a thread for this since I'm hyped to see a crossover between the boys in blue. Here's the full press release:

Quote:
Official Press Release

Archie Comics, the leading children’s comic book publisher in the world and the home to some of the most recognizable pop culture characters, including Archie, Betty and Veronica, Jughead, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie and the Pussycats, announced today in conjunction with SEGA and Capcom® plans for a Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man® comic book crossover, starting next year.

The comic book event marks the first time the two legendary video game characters have crossed over, making it a landmark meeting for comic book and gaming fans around the world. The story will be written by best-selling and longtime SONIC THE HEDGEHOG and MEGA MAN writer Ian Flynn and will feature cover art by superstar artist Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante, who illustrated the hit SONIC: GENESIS storyline and the highly-successful MEGA MAN comic book launch.

“This is a historic moment for not only Sonic and Mega Man, but for Archie,” said Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “We’ve had a long, fruitful history with Sonic and are enjoying great success with Mega Man in all our markets. Bringing these characters together was something we’ve been hoping for since we got both licenses, so this is very much a dream come true for the company.”

The crossover, spearheaded by Archie’s Executive Director of Editorial Paul Kaminski, will be a universe-spanning tale that involves not only the legendary characters, but their expansive and diverse supporting casts and villains for a tale that’s certain to go down as one of the most acclaimed and best-selling comic crossovers ever.

The 12-part storyline will run through the ongoing SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, MEGA MAN and SONIC UNIVERSE titles and be available in print and digitally.

“We’ve been gearing up for this for years,” said Kaminski. “From the moment we had Mega Man at Archie, we knew we wanted to bring Sonic and the Blue Bomber together. It’s a big budget movie featuring two of the most storied video game franchises. This has never happened before. We’re making history here, and it’s going to knock people for a loop. This is what comics are all about – drama, fun, action and tons of surprises. Fans will not be disappointed.”

Me and Zaver we're just talking about the sonic comics yesterday and what he told me about the plots in them just confuses the hell of me. Its just a cluster f*** of a story, this why i don't read comic and just stick to manga cause they're at least linear story ,but i just got to see this crossover and what it's all about.

To be fair, the Sonic comics are a clusterfuck because of a lot of reasons, not just because it's an American comic.

They're under a lot of pressure to work in elements from games, and the Sonic Team does NOT tell them much, or anything, about the stories involved, and then they also have to incorporate the other stories and stuff they had to create to fill in the gaps between games. I'm not a fan anymore but I do feel for those guys. I would hate to write under conditions like that.

Sonic's plot should consist of, "Little fuzzies got turned into robots; must save little fuzzies."

Sonic comics are so ridiculous it's amazing. Like how they have all those characters that aren't in the game like the Bunny Robot Legs chick and some of the plots just sound incredible.

The Mega Man comics are pretty good, or at least the first few that I read were good.

I can't wait to see how Robotnik and Eggman form an alliance.

"So... you build robots?"
"Y-yes. Yes I do."
"I... I build robots, t-too. Want to... maybe... hang out some time?"

The Sonic comics from the 90s were so much better than they are now. I actually bought them back then.

I'll at least look into these when they come out.

From what I've heard the newer Sonic comics are pretty good since Ian Flynn took over. I don't read them, but I've skimmed over the plot.

It must be annoying to do the Sonic comics. At first they had to add characters cause they didn't really have enough. Then the games went stupid adding characters and then just stupid in general so they had to shoehorn that crap in. Then they killed Sally and SEGA was like NO WE MIGHT USE HER! THINK OF A STUPID WAY TO BRING HER BACK! and they did just for SEGA to be all lolnope we're gonna make new characters ourselves. Now throw them in the comic too. The comics need to find a way to just kill half the universe off.

So, this has begun with Mega Man #24 and it's pretty great. Wily and Eggman are basically super bros and I love it. One of my favorite pages from the first part is probably when they first meet in person:

Also I saw the whole emerald thing coming for a while now.

So there's another crossover happening in May. This time around though, it's more than just Sonic and Megaman, but rather it's Sega and Capcom in general.
