Mega Man #27

(continued from Sonic The Hedgehog #250) Dr. Light is saved from a long fall by Shadow, leaving Mega Man, Sonic, Tails, and Rush free to break into the Wily Egg. There they face the “Mega Man Killers” while Wily and Eggman’s partnership hits the wall thanks to Eggman trying to kill Doctor Light. Tails is hurt in the battle with the Killers and Rush must get him out of the fight, leaving Sonic and Rock alone against the Chaos Devil (although they receive surprise help) and are about to face Metal Sonic and Bass! (continues in Sonic Universe #54)

What they got right: It’s about time the villain party fell apart and I do like how Dr. Wily is characterized here. He doesn’t want to kill Doctor Light, just humiliate him. Maybe Wily isn’t a murderer, an aspect I would like to see explored in the regular Mega Man universe down the road.

What they got wrong: Cover art on the wrong issues. This one has Dr. Light at the “mercy” of Eggman, but he had already dropped him in the previous installment. Then there was the comic that had Mega Man and Sonic fighting the Chaos Devil, which doesn’t happen until this issue. They should have kept an eye out for things like that.

Recommendation: As this storyline nears it’s conclusion you should look up the whole thing. I don’t know how it will be packaged up for trade, but there’s a checklist in each issue of the arc so it should be easy to find.

I didn't mention the helper was Duo? Well, he is.
