More Archie's Mega Man Tidbits

Archie Comics has released a set of new info for the first issue in their on-going Mega Man series today in the form of a very small press release. Nothing hugely major, just some details concerning pricing and release date(s):

  • Shipping Date: 4/27/2011
  • On Sale at Comic Shops: 5/4/2011
  • Newsstands: Week of 5/17/2011
  • 32 pages, 40 Ib
  • Glossy stock, full color
  • Price: $2.99

The "shipping date" may be an indicator that a subscription will be offered before late April, early May -- however, Archie has yet to comment on that. News on that front will probably bubble up around next month.

Regardless, I'm pretty excited about this. The series is planned as an on-going, so hopefully we can look forward to many, many Mega Man stories from Archie for years to come.

  1. it'd be nice if they elaborate more on the relationship between megaman and bass, and i'd like to see some hints at zero as well. but i guess that would require either an offshoot of some sort, or an X series.

  2. I second that notion!

  3. Awesome! I can't wait for this!

  4. Good idea anon, I am really looking forward to see the adaptations of the two Rockman & Forte games.
    Ian said he wanted to do adaptations of BOTH Mega Man and Bass's.

  5. Still waitin' on a "click here to subscribe" button. There aren't any comic shops in my neck of the woods...

  6. Yea, I think a storyline that flows through all the games Ariga style would be cool. Their Sonic series has had its ups and downs but overall has been pretty good.

  7. I Hope, After they finish the games, if they manage to finish them all, they would come up with good and original Ideas
