Sonic Universe #54
Archie Comics (September, 2013)“When Worlds Collide” part 11: “Worst Of The Worst” WRITER: Ian Flynn PENCILER: Ben Bates INKER: Gary Martin COVER ARTIST: Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante COLORIST: Matt Herms ASSISTANT EDITOR: Vincent Lovallo EDITOR: Paul Kaminski
(continued from Mega Man #24) Sonic and Mega Man make their way through to the end, but first they must face the combined power of their dopplegangers. But the evil doctors may yet gain the upper hand. (concluded in Sonic The Hedgehog #251)
What they got right: Both Sonic and Mega Man have opposite numbers in the form of Metal Sonic and Bass. Saving it until the second to last issue was a good idea. I like that the usual “switch opponents” plan didn’t work and they had to come up with a different solution.
What they got wrong: As I said in the previous part of the crossover, if you’re going to have Treble in this fight you should have kept Rush around.
Recommendation: This is ramping up to a huge finale, which takes place in the next issue of Sonic’s main comic. Pick these up!
