Mega Man the Comic

It looks like Archie Comics will be adding the blue bomber Mega Man to their roster of comics on sale.  The new Mega Man comic book series will be written by Ian Flynn (Sonic the Hedgehog) and with art by Patrick ‘Spaz’ Spaziante (Sonic the Hedgehog).

 

 

“Since 1987, the enormously successful Mega Man franchise has conquered media from video games to television to manga,” said Paul Kaminski, the franchise’s editor, “Archie Comics is ready to carry on this tradition of success, holding true to the spirit of the old school with a fresh eye on Mega Man‘s strong potential in the world of American comics. Readers can expect non-stop action, as well as an exploration of the themes of family, choice and loyalty that make the Mega Man franchise a property that connects on a very personal level.”

 

The first issue goes on sale May 11, 2011.  To promote the series Archie Comics has released the following animated trailer.
