Review of the Week: Sonic the Hedgehog #249

The crossover event of 2013 continues. If you haven't already check out my reviews for parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. So this issue features a big battle between the eight Roboticized Masters and Sonic, Tails, Mega Man, Proto Man, and Rush. Proto Man runs off a head to try and rescue Dr. Light while the rest of our heroes stay and fight. Wily sends the Roboticized Knuckles, Shadow, Silver, Rose, and Blaze after Proto Man while the 3 roboticized Chaotix members stay and fight. Sonic and Mega Man manage to de-roboticize them the same way they did Tails and the Chaotix agree to help our heroes. Towards the end as Eggman and Wily are chatting we see they have Eggman's nephew and former minion Snivley prisoner as well as Dr. Light.

This crossover is starting to drag just a bit to be honest. It's still fun, but when I first heard it would be 12 parts I figured there would be so much more going on than just this. There isn't all that much interaction between characters of the different universes due to half of Sonic's supporting characters being Roboticized. Mind you this isn't a bad story by any stretch, but being 6 issues in we could have done a lot more than we have so far. Still it is a ton of fun and if you're not reading it you should check it out.
