Given the past couple of years, it should come as no surprise that Archie Comics will once again be hosting a panel dedicated to our two favorite blue boys of video game comics at this year's New York Comic Con. This time, however, the Two in Blue will also be seeing a little red-- Red Circle Comics, that is. Speaking at the panel will be editor Paul Kaminski and Mike Pellerito, President of Archie Comics, as they talk about Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe, and The New Crusaders, as well as showing off artwork, answering questions, and even teasing us a little more with what's to come from "When Worlds Collide," the crossover between Mega Man and the Sonic titles slated for next year.
Following are the full details of the panel from the NYCC website.
Archie Action Hour: Sonic, Mega Man and Red Circle Comics #280
Date: Sunday, October 14 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Speakers: Mike Pellerito, Paul Kaminski
Description: Plug in, suit up and prepare for adventure! First, two video game icons collide in the I-can’t-believe-it’s-actually-happening Sonic/Mega Man comic book crossover event. You’d be crazier than Doctors Eggman and Wily combined to miss this follow up discussion where we dive right into it. The editorial mastermind behind both books, Paul Kaminski, is joined by Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito with more info about the biggest comic book event of the year as well as what’s on tap for Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe, and Mega Man. See exclusive artwork, learn about upcoming story lines and get your questions answered by the team behind the two most popular video game comic series. Then, get all the details on the future of superhero comics—The New Crusaders! The digital-first series has made its way to print, and the Red Circle team are pumped to give you the rundown on where the series is headed, along with info about the upcoming Lost Crusade mini-series, in this action-packed panel. Those in attendance will receive a FREE SONIC/MEGA MAN/RED CIRCLE GIFT BAG, so don’t even think about missing it!
If we're not mistaken, this isn't the first time they've offered up these gift bags; can anyone verify what they usually contain? In any case, hopefully we'll hear some tantalizing tidbits about what is to come.
