Oh man, my schedule this week is anything but right. Fortunately, I'm still here early enough to say that tomorrow is when the 275th issue of the record-setting Sonic the Hedgehog series from Archie will be available, bringing us to the penultimate chapter of Worlds Unite.
And the covers, oh, the covers! Though there have been more ridiculous quantities produced for a milestone before, this one has six in total, three of which feature Mega Man as well! If you were a fan of the Worlds Unite teaser/reveal image, then you can get the full version of that in print, among other options. Check 'em out below.
Mighty No. X will be along soon with his review, hopefully by Friday; for now, you may indulge in the five-page preview below along with the cover gallery and Archie's solicitation.
