Noticed that too.

Don't want to spoil TOO much, but there were two big "tickle your fanboy-bone" moments that I enjoyed (there's more than that in the comic, obviously, but these two hit me personally).  The first is Metal Man's battle.  His face in the last panel is just frikkin' hilarious.

The second is that Auto seems to be a fan of Brental Floss. 8)

Archie is known to lie on their covers. They've done it before.

Also, like Hypershell, I enjoyed those moments they made in the comic, including Air Man stating that he can't be beaten.  >w< The ending was pretty nice too for the issue. Now I'm excited for the next one.

Yeah, Archie made up their own Robot Master after stating there were plenty of canon robot characters. Don't know what she'll look like until the preview panels come out for the next arc.

It only makes sense to introduce a new "robot master" if the creator is anyone but Right, Wily and Cossack.

I'm a little weak on the finer points of the pre-8 storyline, but aren't the MM6 Robot Masters supposed to be from all over the world?

Not that I object to an original Robot Master, 'cuz I don't.

Not that I think it would affect the comic, but having Dr. Lalinde be, say, Plantman's creator might be taken very badly, either because it'd make her look like a Mary Sue (exercise caution when extending a character's family), or because some fans don't know how alternate continuities work.

Point taken.  I'd actually forgotten about the new Dr.  If they're introducing a new robotics engineer then an original Robot Master is only logical.

Preview for #15. We now know what Quakewoman looks like, and it seems Protoman will finally be making more than just a cameo appearance.

She looks cute, but even for a Robot Master the design is surprisingly basic.

Searchlight-nose Rush, nice touch.

Yeah, my first thoughts were "she looks less quake-y and more like a normal Reploid". In retrospect, her design might not be elaborate enough to fit in with the X series more than Classic, but still.

Maybe it's because they're still in the mindset of the early NES Masters?  I mean, it's not as if a jack-in-the-box is the first thing I think of when I think "heat."

I was told that someone on the Bumbleking forums had this to say on Quake:

Quote
Maybe Quake Woman is a pun on Rock Man and she's not going to have Quake powers at all. I'm thinking this because you were talking about how generic she looks and Mega Man is the main character and one of the most generic looking characters. Rock and Quake both have a double meaning of earth theme and shaking things up.

That'd make sense.

A bit bulkier/more muscular, for one.

I'm sure somebody believes that.

I was expecting more rugged looking armor.  I could do without muscle chicks in my Mega Man, so in that sense, I'm grateful.

He's a Zippo lighter...I thought it's fairly obvious >_>

Also dang, I've just noticed that Ra Moon is on the cover...

I know what he's talking about, that's just not what I see when I look at Heat Man.  Lighters aren't that wide, proportionally.  EXE does it better due to his lack of legs.

Interesssting. I better color my Zippo to match Heat Man's color scheme then. And alas Quake appears to resemble a Mega Man X fancharacter, I know Archie's design quality if you compare it with the Sonic the Hedgehog origionals in those comics..

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.

Which character(s)?  There's an awful lot of them, and the quality of ANYTHING concerning Archie's Sonic comic tends to vary greatly due to how frikkin' long it's been running.  Julie-Su, Finitivus, the Brotherhood, and Elias, all awesome.  A.D.A.M., M, Tommy, and the Xorda, not so much.

Yeah, it's usually hit-or-miss with these guys, by experince alone. Designing a character isin't all that easy, trust me I know. Finitivus had a great design, that I know. I'll cut them some slack since they've never done an origional Mega-Style RM armor before. I hope to see some improvements after Quake in the future, but it's funny you know, when I think of "quake", I think of Blackhook's Hammer Woman, as she causes quakes.

Plus the way she looks could mean that she can fit into X's timeline as some generic fanloid (fanmade + reploid = fanloid) civillian in a slashfic.
