Mega Man will be starring in his own comic book series spring 2011, thanks to Archie Comics. This will not be Archie Comics’ first video game-based title, as the company has been publishing a comic series based on Sonic The Hedgehog since 1993, which is still going strong today at over 200 issues.
Archie Comics has promised to stay true to the spirit of the Mega Man series and also hope to eventually explore the storylines of Mega Man spin-off titles such as Mega Man X, Mega Man Zero and Mega Man Legends. According to Archie Comics, the Mega Man comic series will focus on Rock, the peaceful robot boy thrust into the role of Mega Man in order to oppose the forces of Dr. Wily.
The series will be written by Ian Flynn, who currently writes the Sonic the Hedgehog series, and drawn by Patrick Spaniante, who has previously done artwork for the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Capcom has definitely shown a renewed interest in their mascot in recent years, thanks to the successful “retro-revival” of Mega Man 9 and the announcement of games like Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3. What do you fans of the Blue Bomber think of all the attention he has been getting?
