What’s better than one Sonic and Mega Man universe? You tell me.
Perhaps a bit awkwardly tangential in light of recent news, Comics Alliance have held an interview with Archie Action Comics editor Vincent Lovallo, Not only does this recap part one and give us another behind the scenes insight, but it comes with the preview for Sonic Boom #8. After the events of the last Sonic Boom story have unfolded, Sticks gets a real surprise when she runs into some of the cast of Mega Man X! But there’s hardly time to joke about as Sigma makes the two wacky doctors get to work on retooling the main universe heroes into minions of his own. This cannot be good! This is “Worlds Unite”: part 2.

It slices! It dices! It joins line-wide crossover events: it’s SONIC BOOM! “Sonic/Mega Man: Worlds Unite” Part Two: It was just another day at the races—y’know, the ones with the giant spider-mechs?

Eggman and Wily are forced to turn their life-long nemeses—Sonic and Mega Man—into minions for the terrifying Sigma! After the history-making “WORLDS COLLIDE” crossover event, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man unite once more—and this time Sonic Boom and Mega Man X are joining the fray!
