We've spent a pretty hefty amount of time thinking about the upcoming crossover between Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man
comics, but there's one sinister possibility that we never considered: the dire, unstoppable evil of a bicycle built for two!
It is exactly that terrifying possibility that will be coming to life on the "Evil Friends Forever" cover of Mega Man
#25 by Jamal Peppers, Gary Martin, Matt Herms and Patrick Spaziante, in which Drs. Wily and
Eggman celebrate a triumph over their foes with a trip through a park that can only be described as bromantic
. Check out the full cover and solicitation info after the cut!
It's worth noting that in true villainous form, Eggman and Wily are engaging in some truly villainous behavior that readers should definitely
not imitate. Listen, kids, even if you're super stoked from tying up your nemeses and hanging them from a tree like a couple of surprisingly vocal piñatas, you should never
mix champagne and bicycling-built-for-two. It's a recipe for disaster.
