I don't have issue 5, but I'm hoping that they'll send it to me since I ordered the twelve month subscription. Although I'm curious about how they're handling Time Man and Oil Man. Were they still creations of Light that were incomplete and Wily finished them during the first saga or were creations of Wily period?

I dunno if they can be all-Wily 'bots if they're DLN Numbers. Wily finishing them would be interesting, and explain their loyalty to him if he didn't just reprogram them.

Exactly what you just said actually.

Well, I have received issue six of the comic (Yaay it finally came in the mail. I was about to go buy it too. XD )

Spoilers ahoy.

(click to show/hide)

Chad's style is growing on me as I said. There was a nice pace going with this unlike the first issues which seemed to move too quickly, I like the seriousness of agents in investigating Dr. Light's possible involvement in Wily's world domination attempt and escape, intermixed with the humor. The interaction between the characters is actually nicely handled, Wily's character is spot on as the crazy bastard we all know and love. Oh and Cut Man eased off the puns a little. There're still there, just not constant. XD

And that's that, for now. Are there any available scans of Rosalyn?

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

IGN's #8 preview has a couple.

By the way, there's gonna be a reprint of #1 for Free Comic Book Day (May 5th); Chad Thomas's alternate-cover sketch finally got inked and coloured. Anyone besides me wants to get that?

You know, it occurs to me, the fact that Oil Man wears his scarf over his mouth in the comic is probably Archie's way of making sure that they don't have to recolor him.  We all know what happens to dark-skinned humanoid caricatures with big lips (see Jynx and Mr. Popo).

Well, within the last week or two, yeah.  What can I say, I haven't been discussing the comic on the internet that much. -u-'

A lot of people noticed, I think. (Not a necopost, but you might want to merge your posts)

Bit old, but here's two interviews with Mr. Flynn regarding the comic: one by Destructoid and another with TMMN.

Among other things, Capcom is oddly supportive of the comic (given their apparent disdain for MM). Probably because it's selling well. There's going to be some SAR- and World-related stories in the future, with #13 apparently setting up for the former and MM4.

So I was reading comments on Protodudes blog, related to the "Megaman issue 13" and its introduction of Light's sweetheart.
I [tornado fang]ing hated every moment of it.
Aside from few people, most of that [parasitic bomb] was:
MARY SUE!
MARY SUE!
ARCHIE IS KNOWN FOR MAKING MARY SUES!
MARY SUE!
I HATE THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?! Oh yes, I forgot. Fantards.

I personally love when new things are introduced, especially in a comic that SO FAR was mostly a rehash of things we've seen. ANY EVERYONE COMPLAINED ABOUT THAT!

I don't mind Light having a sweetheart. I don't mind those other new characters introduced. I trust Ian will do a good job with them.

I don't think everyone there was calling Dr. Lalinde a Sue, but yeah. Urgh.

Me, I hope she'll be a decent character (and if she's a villain like people are predicting, then that she'll be an effective one).

So, how about that psychotic Mega man in issue 10? This issue made my week. So good.

Loved issue 10. Mega Man becoming more insensitive every time he absorbs the powers of the fallen RMs is an interesting view to take. Kinda liked the double-edged sword feel it gives. I loved how Crash Man was written, going beserk when the lack of his hands was mentioned and Ben Bates got that crazed expression just right. Apparently issue 11 Mega's taking on the remaining four, or Archie is lying about their covers again.

As for the next arc being original? Flynn wanted to build up on the world, I see nothing wrong with that at all. Actually I like it when authors/ artists build upon the world their characters are involved in, makes it feel more real.

Also heard that some people are complaining about Dr. Cossack and Pharaoh Man showing up too soon.  ::)

Just because they show up, doesn't mean they have to be evil. IMHO them showing up makes things more interesting for when they do turn on the heroes.

It's called the foreshadow effect. It's what happens when a character appears sooner than intended. This has happened a lot of times. It's more likely they did that so that they can show the scientific community a lot larger than it was shown in the classic games, and more than likely buildup to the Mega Man 4 story arc, the way I see it.

Has anyone spotted background/crowd scene cameos as of yet in the past few issues?

Archie unveils their first original robot master: Quake Woman!

http://www.rockmancorner.com/2012/02/cover-and-solicitation-for-archies-mega.html

What do you guys think of that? I'm looking forward to this story arc, it seems likes its the first deviation from the Mega Man story where we'll get to explore deeper things, such as "Do Machines have souls?" which I think is one of the cooler themes underlying the entire Mega Man Lore.

If Archie continue to do more original stories in between the offical game plots, I think it'll continue to be a fun and exciting comic. Mega Man games don't usually explore the personalities and motivations of the characters in the series. This is a fine insight into how Mega Man and the others think and feel.

And thank heavens for things like Comixology. Without apps on Android Smartphones, there would never have been any other way for me to get ahold of the Mega Man comics. Except for waiting many many months for each Graphic Novel.

In general I think the "do machines have souls" theme is overdone, but in Megaman it's pretty interesting because it's established that yes they do, and in fact, we know that THEY do but still dunno about humans. Though it's never really touched upon in-game.

Received and finished #11 today. Without going into major spoilers--and unless I missed something--Stern and Krantz are nowhere in the issue itself despite being on the cover (albeit not as large a place on it as the RMs). >.>
