Archie Comics' crossover between Sega and Capcom's best known characters is called Worlds Collide. And it looks like the biggest collision will be happening in next week's Sonic #250, when a crap-ton of robot masters show up to try and stop the blue heroes from saving the day.
You can get an advance look at the latest chapter of the mash-up event—due out next Wednesday July 3—in the images below, along with glimpses of the variant covers for next issue, too. And, all you Mega Man-ologists out there feel free to go crazy with the annotations on the top image to let us know who you see.
