Just days before the San Diego Comic Con, Archie comics have finally announced what we’ve all been waiting for. A cross over of the two most famous blue heroes of our generation–Sonic The Hedgehog and Mega Man!
The Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series have been a fan favourite since the early 90’s and have gone over to produce over 200 issues. With the Mega Man comic book series being Archie’s newest baby, many have wondered if they will ever do a crossover.
The books’ editor, Paul Kaminski, received word that Sega and Capcom signed off on the crossover just before New York Comic Con last fall, and his first call was to Flynn.
“His response was, ‘I have been writing that story since we began the Mega Man title,’ ” Kaminski says. “Of course, I thought he was joking, but not an hour later my inbox was flooded with Sonic/Mega Man story synopses.”
It will a 12 part series (which is quite big) and will begin sometime in 2013. Bare in mind that this is Classic 8-Bit Mega Man’s universe and not his future representations.
The blue bomber may have been missing in action lately but we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that he is still living strong in comic book form.
