Earlier this year, Archie Comics announced a follow-up to 2013's "Worlds Collide" crossover that combined their Mega man and Sonic the Hedgehog comics. Details about this new project have been few and far between, with the company simply promising that this second chapter will be "bigger and better." But now we can exclusively reveal that Worlds Unite won't just involve Sonic and Mega Man crossing paths again, it'll also bring the Mega Man X and Sonic Boom universes into the mix.

Worlds-Unite---Sticks-and-X-Promo[2][1]

Worlds Unite is a mini-series that will be written by Ian Flynn, who currently pens the Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sonic Boom Comics for Archie. The covers for Worlds Unite will be drawn by Patrick "Spaz" Spaziante, though no interior artist has been announced yet.

"Not one, but TWO new casts will be joining the battle in this summer's Sonic/Mega Man WORLDS UNITE crossover event! The worlds of Sonic Boom and Mega Man X will be joining the fray, accompanying the worlds of Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man in the biggest crossover event in Archie Action history! " said Archie Action editor Paul Kaminski.

Kaminski continued, "The Sonic Boom comic series is part of the latest multi-media initiative from Sega, which includes video games, toys, and an all-new TV series on cartoon Network! Mega Man X has been a staple of video game culture for decades, and we were thrilled to begin exploring that futuristic universe in 2014's Dawn of X storyline in the Mega Man comics! How will the slapstick antics of the ever-paranoid Sticks the Badger measure up against the futuristic action of X and the Maverick Hunters? Pick up Worlds Unite, starting this spring from Archie Action, to find out! And this is only the tip of the iceberg…"

Poor Poor X just when you think that IOS game and X7 was your lowest point it gets worse. For the record I love the last crossover and the Megaman and Sonic comics but Boom is just awful I got the feeling this was forced by Sega so Boom can get some crossover sales.

Actually the first issue sold very well, more so than the main comic and Universe combined. So it's not like the decision was made because it wasn't doing well. And I think it is a good thing Sega would want to continue pushing Boom as a new sub-series through the comic and show (though they're definitely going to sweep both games under the rug due to poor reception and hey, they're just tie-ins, hardly crucial for this series).

But anyways, really looking forward to this since I enjoyed the first one. Very eager for interactions and reactions between Modern and Boom incarnations (particularly Sonic and Knuckles). My only concern is how they'll be able to juggle (and maybe limit) four different casts while telling a coherent narrative.
