Preview: Sonic Universe #54

I’m basically just counting down the days until I get to select Mega Man as a playable character in next year’s Super Smash Bros. Not saying I’ll be tournament ready, but I’m gonna enjoy myself as Link and Pit from Kid Icarus take turns hurling me off those floating stages.

Until then, join me in a retro gaming slobberknocker of epic proportions as two of the most iconic blue sprites continue their joint crusade against doctors Eggman and Wily! In next week’s penultimate chapter of “When Worlds Collide”, Sonic and Mega Man face a seemingly insurmountable boss battle featuring a chaos-fueled super weapon! At this stage in the adventure, there’s no hope of cheat codes or YouTube walkthroughs. It’s the point of no return in Sonic Universe #54!


Sonic and Mega Man fight for their lives in “When Worlds Collide”: Part Eleven of Twelve! The evil doctors Eggman and Wily have completed their ultimate battle-weapon: the Egg-Wily Machine X—Powered by the Chaos Emeralds, it is the most powerful battle machine ever constructed! As our heroes do battle, Metal Sonic and Bass join the fray! Will the combined might of the Wily/Eggman arsenal be too much for Sonic and Mega Man to handle?! The answer will surprise you—ONLY available in this penultimate chapter of “Worlds Collide”! Featuring a zone-shattering new cover from Patrick “SPAZ” Spaziante and a special behind-the-scenes “Pencil Ink Color” variant!

  1. Ah, my two favorite videogame characters. Is this any good? I’ve Sonic comics before and I think I’m just too old for them, the stories too kiddy maybe (simple might be a better word). I enjoy the FCBD Sonics but that usually is enough for me.
