Sonic the Hedgehog/ Mega-Man FLIPBOOK FCBD 2014 EDITION

(W) Ian Flynn (A) Patrick “SPAZ” Spaziante, Jennifer Hernandez, Lamar Wells, Rick Bryant, Gary Martin, John Workman, Jack Morelli and Matt Herms

(CA) Ben Bates

Its TWO free comic books in ONE! Hot off the heels of the ultra-successful Sonic/Mega Man crossover event, “Worlds Collide”, comes a showcase issue of the hottest new storylines in both characters’ universes — exclusively for Free Comic Book Day! Sonic stars in “Blast to the Past” and the origin of his Freedom Fighters! Then, on the flipside of this issue, get ready for the “Mega Man X” crossover event with this primer story!

32pgs, FC FREE!


The image of the split covers are too big to be put here in one image, but here it is. This certainly sounds like it'll be interesting, though I'm disappointed to see they're combining Sonic and Mega Man (X) into one issue again like last year. If it's only as long as the traditional comics, that means each story will only be ten pages long. That's not exactly a whole lot to tell a story with.

It's pretty vague as far as X's half of the comic goes, but more on this mysterious X crossover the synopsis's for Mega Man 34 and 35 talked about. So this definitely seems like it's going to be a big deal.

...EXCELLENT. This pleases Yami.

I already made note of this on the Sonic version's thread, but does anyone else think that the Mega Man X image looks familiar?

Could be because I released an earlier version earlier on... Someone here posted it and I lied ;) I said it was a commission. It was actually one of the original designs I tried. At the end of the day there were three and it was a matter of fine tuning it. I'm sure someone can dig it up... I can't seem to find my originals at the moment!

Here's the second version... Never got around to colouring it properly as we'd moved on to what is now the final. The original had Sigma floating in the back. Originally I would've loved to have just done a big, f***-off picture of a bad-butt Sigma, but for these sorts of things it's better to have a slightly more broader image. Image

I'm amazed. Not just by the sketch, but by the fact that an Archie professional just dodged the swear filter xD

Wait, that's Tristan on the cover? Why does the solicit say Ben Bates?

Solicits aren't always right, my friend. Not to mention that Ben didn't draw the Sonic cover either; it was Tracy Yardley!

So the Sonic Origins that is going to be on the SSSM #10? If so then I'm definitively getting this.

Just going off the title on the Cover I'd say this is a compalation of the Mega Man X back-up's and personally I'd love that because I try to read Chronologicaly anyway so having them all in one place before this crossover is pretty awesome.

So is the MMX side of this a reprint too or is it an original story? Whatever the case, loving the cover. Super detailed and nice dark color scheme. Aw yis.

Also maybe the OP should be updated with a link that works? Or maybe the images posted in TSoM?

Our bets are on a reprint of the MMX back-ups.

Listing Ben could just be a mistake, like someone calling Tracy "Tristan".

EDIT: Oh, wait. You meant Tristan Jones. I forgot that was his first name and thought you were talking about the Sonic cover. Ignore that, then. Though that's still weird: Why'd they list Ben when he didn't do either cover?

Just a little nitpick. If the Sonic Comic is supposed to tell a story of the past ( like, in the Genesis Era), why does Tails & Amy are in they're recent design, in the background?

It's just a mistake. Since Ben did both covers for the previous FCBD's flipbook, that could be where the oversight came in. If you look at the solicit on FCBD's website, it lists the correct artists: T. Rex (Tristan Jones) for Mega Man, and Tracy Yardley! for Sonic.

I have a feeling it's going to tell the origins of the rebooted Archieverse that was created from the Super Genesis Wave. Basically, the universe was rewritten, and readers are jumping into it very late into its history. This story will tell us everything that happened that we never got to see. So... that means the original designs of Tails and Amy could have been retconned. Pure speculation, but that's my take on it.
