Archie Comics have revealed both the standard and variant cover for the fifth issue in their Mega Man comic series. Yes, while some of us are still awaiting on issue #1 to hit mailboxes (me!), Archie is quite ahead of the game. Nevertheless, check them out!
Your eyes don't deceive you, that's Mega Man Powered Up's Time Man! Issue #5 looks to be kicking off a brand new story arc featuring the time-warping Robot Master:
"Time Keeps Slipping” Part One: The evil Dr. Wily may be in jail, but that doesn’t mean the adventures are over for Mega Man! Federal agents are investigating Dr. Light for ties to the Robot Masters‘ rampage while sinister figures lurk in the shadows. And why does Dr. Wily look so smug in his jail cell? Don’t miss the beginning of the newest Mega Man adventure! Featuring a painted cover by fan favorite artist Greg Horn!"
Issue #5 is due out for subscribers on August 24, comic shops on September 7, and newsstands everywhere on September 13.
Issue #5 marks the departure of series regular Patrick 'Spaz' Spaziante. In his place, Chad Thomas, artist of past cover variants, will be taking up the pen for the interior artwork. If you want to see Spaz continue his work on the comics, send Archie a line, and make your voice heard!
