Thread: Archie Comics to Publish Mega Man!

    Lovin' that art style! Though it's Spaz, so of course it's great. Also, I like how the Yellow Devil is designed after his Power Battle/Fighters incarnation!

    Nice little subtle fanservice gag: Mega Man runs from, and avoids fighting, the Big Eyes. Just like every player did in Wily Stage 1 back in the day.

    Got the first issue in the mail today!

    It wasn't action packed being a flash back other then the sneak peak.

    As suspected it a retelling of the first mega man game.

    Best part was it had a lot of mega man references.

    On the last page was an extra for panel comic that was worth a laugh.

    Anyone want details?

    but we already know the story, so how is it spoilers.
    "megaman shoots gutsman, he wins" knowing that he stopped for a soda along the way isn't going to matter.

    It's the journey that matters, not the goal, usopp.

    The first four issues will be a telling of the events that covered the first Mega Man game. Afterwards, if the comic is a hit, the series will continue with the second Mega Man game and so on including spin-offs.

    P.S. According to the folks at the Mega Man Network and Bumbleking, the first issue is solid in both artwork and story so it's definitely worth the purchase and subscription.

    I figured. But I'm the kind of person who when I see a show I like, I'll find out how it ends at wikipedia before I see the second episode. So why not ask, I can't be the only weirdo out there.

    Picked up my copy of the first issue at my local comic shop today and just finished reading it.

    Very very good stuff. If you're a Mega Man fan, you'll love this.

    Ask and you shall receive.

    Story:
    Spoiler:
    After the sneak peak were at a park where dr. light about to give a speech. Wily shows up and whines about not being on stage despite helping. It seems he already has a bad rep so light keeping his help quiet. Light gives his speech and a reporter asks about military uses like his work on sniper joes.

    That night Dr. Light and rock and roll talk about his goals with robots while wily sneaks in and does that voodoo that he do. Next morning the RMís are gone and rampage on the news. After wily gloats on tv rock volunteers. One upgrade later he names himself mega man after his mega buster.


    References: A lot that I saw.
    Spoiler:
    The reporters at the speech are from various games such as legends, battle and chase, and I believe zero 4.
    Extra points for the use of a 8-bit sprite!
    While explaining the robot masters their heads appear in the boss select boxes around lights head.
    The sweat looks like when mega man was holding a boulder over his head
    The legends reporter gives here name as Ö Li with channel 8. Was that her name from legends or a reference to chun li being a reporter in mega man 9?
    In the mini comic at the end he rock asks if heís a ďsuper fighting robotĒ which was half the theme song from the cartoon.
    Also in the mini comic he box art mega man.


    What I liked and what was weird.
    Spoiler:
    I liked the uses of super arm and the testing of charge shot. Canít wait for a more action packed issue.
    Roll wearing classic dress despite that mm8 dress on the cover.
    Wasnít expecting that B&C Reference since it never came out in usa.
    Sweat looks a lot like tears takes some getting use to.
    Dr. light waited to change after being told the RMís were missing?
    Bit weird that he already has charge shot.

    Spoiler:
    I definitely liked the little banter between Wily and Light at the beginning. Although, Wily's sinister appearance just came off as a little too goofy for me. It's like he wants us to see that he's the "Grr, grr! I'm the villain! GRRRRRR!!!!!"

    I also liked the little bit on Light's past on the construction of Sniper Joes and how he hates to use robots for the purposes of war. It looks like a plot point that may get touched up on later. Possibly next issue since those who played the game are aware of the Sniper Joes in Bomb Man's stage.

    However, when Rock volunteered to retrieve the Robot Masters after their reprogramming, Dr. Light just seemed to agree wholeheartedly on having Rock do the job despite his hatred for using any robots for war purposes. I expected Light to hesitate more before giving in to Rock's pleas.

    The RM's had their head shots look like the stage select icons from the official game. Nice touch.

    Loved the cameos by Ripot, Plum, and Neige. Also loved the other CAPCOM easter eggs as well.

    Light Labs must have the worst property security system I've ever seen if Wily was able to just waltz in and reprogram the RMs like it's no big deal.

    Roll is just adorable.

    The Mega Buster has a charge capability? It really shouldn't be getting that capability until the Cossack arc. However, I reserve full judgement until the next volume.

    No Rush! Boo! Tsk tsk, Spaz! Shouldn't put characters on the cover that don't have an appearance in the official comic!

    Finally, the 'Short Circuits' comic. LOL @ Rock being turned into the Bad Box Art Mega Man from the first Mega Man game! Great job, Chad!


    So yeah. That's my review so far. I'll read the comic again tomorrow to see if there are other things I missed out on the first time. But so far, the comic is definitely a good read.

    I subscribed as well, but... I have yet to get the first issue. =(

    I subscribed on like the 1st of May though, in case that may be a factor. I'm waiting in anticipation!

    Spoiler:

    I think its because light considers rock less a robot then his son.

    Well Wily is Light's partner so I would expect him to be in and out with out problems. Though the damage to the lab was a bit much, still I guess it had good sound proofing to make bomb man.


    Maybe. I subbed months ago. Just give it time.

    Same here. I subscribed in early March, but still haven't gotten my issue. I'm used to it, though. I tend to get my Amazing Spider-Man issues a week or so later than the comic shop.
