Take a peek at the Mega Man, Sonic crossover comic

Nov 28, 2012 // Minish Capcom

The Blue Blur meets the Blue Bomber! Kotaku has a piece up about this impending crossover comic series (beginning in April ’13) as well as an interview with artist Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante.

And if you can look at that left cover image without getting the MvC1 character select music stuck in your head… are you alive???

Sample Q&A:

Kotaku : Have you had the freedom to diverge from the way the characters have been visually presented before? What kind of changes have you made?

Spaziante:  Yes and no, minor artistic interpretation on my part is allowed here and there, but each company has a set guideline for their characters, and I try not to deviate too far from that. We want to remain as respectful as possible to the Japanese designs, while delivering solid American comic book storytelling. It’s a fine line to walk, but Archie has been doing it for quite a while now, with Mega Man for the past few years, and with Sonic for twenty years come 2013!

More over at Kotaku , and if you missed my chat with writer Ian Flynn, that’s right here .
