Archie Comics wrote:"With the formation of the reality-traversing "Genesis Portals", our heroes will be taken to new worlds from throughout the Sega and Capcom universes to do battle with Sigma's forces of evil! From the high-fantasy worlds of Alex Kidd and Breath of Fire, to the mischievous and over-the-top adventures of Billy Hatcher and Viewtiful Joe, Sonic, Mega Man and co will explore places never before seen in Archie Action comics!"

Red Arremer, fuckers!

I wonder if they'll have Joe, Amaterasu and Bayonetta in the same panel and allude to them being made by the same peeps.

Oh wow, wasn't expecting Amaterasu in there. I'll be really interested to see how everything turns out by the end of the week.

As cynical as this sounds, I want a blurb sometime saying something along the lines "Worlds Unite, an epic saga featuring all your favorite Sega and Capcom characters! And Sticks."

So a Panzer Dragoon and a Monster. Kinda misleading how the latter is 20% of the image. Though there's word that there'll be more characters yet. I'm hoping Ristar and Asha... Heck, why not throw Tempo in the mix as well (he is super funky and good to go).

No Capcom characters immediately jump to mind... um... Radd Spencer?

...

Christ! Am I seriously anticipating something by fuckin Archie!? I'm part of this insipid brand-recognition wasteland.

It would be more impressive if they could actually draw any of the characters (check out Alex Kidd's mouth up there!).

I rec' Guile and Thunderhead and Arcadia characters (tho' not by name).

But nuff 'bout them. Is that Wonderboy down there at the bottom?

(The Freedom Fighters are tampering the appeal quite a bit, all said)

Pretty sure that's a Breath of Fire protagonist. Wonderboy might have been tougher to get, I think WestOne (or whatever is left of it) still has partial (or maybe even complete?) ownership of it at this point in time.

So apparently the standalone Archie Sonic Boom comic is ending after the crossover, at issue #11. It's said that there may still be the occasional side-story in the main comics, though.
