Worlds Collide Part 12 variant cover EFF by BenBates Worlds Collide Part 12 variant cover EFF by BenBates
A fun challenge to add something new after Jamal Peppers and Tracy Yardley set the stage with their "Evil Friends Forever" scenarios. This was a lot of fun and I tried to think of what robots would be appropriate for the area they are in. If it was a level what enemies would you be destroying kind of thing.
In my mind, the Doctors are surveying the land so they can chop it all down and then build some massive industrial complex full of deadly traps. But they're too late!

I left the cover of the comic totally blank so the regular 251 cover could be dropped in later. I don't know if it was done around the time I drew this. Originally my plan was just to have Wily reading a book of scary stories, but editor Paul Kaminski came up with the idea of them reading their own comic!

Oh, and the 'Evil Friends Forever' blurb above the heroes is my own little simple pass on the idea. I think originally Paul wanted different designs for each cover. I'm not entirely certain why it didnt' get used, but I'm gonna assume its because its too tall to fit with the title and all that stuff. Originally I had even more stuff going on with it but it was covering Mega Man and Sonic so I simplified. Apparently not enough. I like it though! Really looks like an old sticker or something.

I love how Eggman acts so evil and is so ruthless most of the time, but he's scared by a scary campfire story. Funny.

The EFF covers were easily my favourite of all of the variants in the crossover and you've done a wonderful job with this one here. I really like the Sonic marshmallows, that's such a fun idea.

Out of all the crossover covers, this one one was my absolute favorite! 
I drove an hour to a comic book store in the next city just to get a physical copy of it. If there's a point where you release the original rough drafts/pencils of the issues you drew in the crossover on your blog, could you perhaps release the rough drafts/pencils of this here cover too? :)

yeah that cover straight up sold me. I love Eggman's expression the most. Like he's looking out to see if Sonic and Megaman are lurking in the woods
