Courtesy of Archie, we have the latest solicits, featuring a milestone issue for Mega Man who hits the big five-oh (remember Sonic’s 50th, when Robotnik died?

Fans of older Archie stories, meanwhile, have Sonic Archives #25 which brings us ever closer to the 100th issue of the series.

    Oh man, I wasn’t paying attention and just looking at the art and was wondering what the heck Void of all people could have to do with Worlds Unite. Took me a very confused minute to see Archives written on the top and realize that wasn’t part of it.

    Wow, I didn’t even read the text. All I was thinking was “MEGAMAN AND SONIC OGJDFBOSIDUFHGIUASHFIUAS”
