Welcome to the eleventh installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event. Previously in “Worlds Unite,” Sonic, Mega Man and their friends had followed Sigma's forces to a whole lot of new universes to track down the Unity Engines before they could be activated. For the last two issues, that's pretty much been the mission everyone's been involved with, which has allowed for the introduction of numerous Capcom and Sega characters into the crossover. While it's been fun seeing all these new faces, there are bigger stakes at large back in the Sonic homeworld. It's about time the heroes returned home to tackle the main source of all their troubles.
