The lights are on
Two of the most popular icons of the 16-bit era – Sonic and Mega Man – are coming together in an Archie Comics crossover. While that's enough to get most gamers interested, the slick 16-bit variant cover art is even better.
One of the covers is below, but head over to IGN for the full story and additional art.

Looks quite awesome!
I read the sonic comics and sonic universe. I didn't get into the mega man series though. It's going to be interesting to see these two. Mega man has been out maybe only a year or two.
Sure, but where's the love for Dr. Robotnik and his flying soda dispenser?
In remembrance of the "good ole days."
HOLY CRAP THIS LOOKS AWESOME!
Odd crossover, but I do see it working.
This looks pretty awesome. I'd definitely buy a copy of this if I see it on a store's shelves. The cover also looks really nice!
Tim is probably losing his mind right now.
That's freaking sweet! I love the 16-bit era artwork!
Yep. I've heard about this for awhile. I really want to read it.
I like the concept of using pixel art for the covers, but when even a quick Google search reveals pixel art of much, much higher quality, I can't help but feel a bit let down, and wonder what sort of cover could have done each series justice.
