  1. Awesome. I picked it up yesterday and although I enjoyed it, it would be nice if Sonic and Mega Man would stop fighting already -.-

  2. Already got it yesterday. My drawing is actually in the back; mine is the sketch of Sonic (by Robert H.).
    Loved Eggman and Wily’s dialogue once again! The highlight of the story for someone who doesn’t like Mega Man!

  3. TOO COOL! I want everyone one who reads this comment to get the crossover series! (That is, if you live in America or Canada.) If you aren’t reading these YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOUR MISSING! I welcome everyone to go to your nearest comic book shop or online website or whatever and get these comics! 😀
    Come on, Metal Tails, Metal Shadow, and Metal Amy! You can’t get much better than that! Then throw Metal sonic into the mix…. It is just an explosion of awesomeness!!! I really suggest everyone get these comics because if there is enough of a popularity spike a game could be possible! For the fight? I’d have to guess that someone else will interfere, but unless if Mega Man has some ‘quick’ thinking, this fight is all Sonic’s.

    1. Actually, its Tails Man, Shadow Man (yes, I know that’s already an established Mega Man character) and Rose Woman. And Knuckles Man.
      But I definitely agree with everything else you just said!!!

    1. If you can find a comic book shop that stocks it… now! Or alternatively go to ebay – the prices aren’t any more expensive than getting it in the shops.

  4. Hey guys, I hate doing this because it’s off topic, but have you guys heard about the rumored 3D Sonic game? I guess it’s called Sonic Excursion, and will focus on Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. I saw the article on

    Just giving you guys a heads up, if you hadn’t already known. It also may have revealed the name of the next xbox: Xbox Infinite. (again, sorry for being off topic.)

  5. I’m getting it tomorrow a long with free comic book day 🙂 I was actually surprised when I found out my closest comic shop sells sth, Sonic universe and mega man. Now I get them the same time as everyone else instead of 2 months later 🙂

  6. I really wanted Sonic’s subtitle from when he was introduced to say “Toot Toot Sonic Warrior.”

  7. How interesting!

    I’m going to bet on Sonic, though. I believe it was Brawl in the Family that made a good point…Rock just has to touch Sonic’s spikes and POOF! XD

  8. I’ll catch up with the story (I like getting more than one at a time to keep the action rolling a little longer) when I swing by my local store on Saturday (Free Comic Book day)

  9. I don’t like it that they’re fighting. I want them to unite ASAP and kick the doctors’ butts!

  10. Hey! what about the review of #247? can’t believe you forgot about that one ;_;

  11. Wow. I never thought I’d read the words “Evil Bro Fist” in an Archie comic. As much as I don’t like Archie much, and think this should have been a video game…. I really am enjoying this series they’re doing. A lot. It has so much charm to it, and I really like the interaction so far. Sometimes I wish that the Mario & Sonic crossovers would be exactly like this in terms of narrative.

  12. I skimmed through it at Toy Wiz today. I thought it was good, I almost bought it. Maybe I will next time. I should collect all of ’em. It may be worth something in the future. 😛
