Mega Man Gigamix Volume 1 In Stores Tomorrow

It's been a long time coming but the day is nearly upon us: UDON's Matt Moylan sends word that Mega Man Gigamix Volume 1 will hit comic book store shelves tomorrow, May 25th. Gigamix 1 marks the beginning of Hitoshi Ariga's latest manga saga, leading up to Mega Man's galactic duel with the Stardroids. As per usual, here's a new batch of preview pages for your viewing pleasure:

While the release date is less precise on the online front, Gigamix 1 is guaranteed to be at comic book specialty stores tomorrow. Call your local store ahead of time just in case!

Thanks for the heads up, Matt!


  1. I got a note from Amazon yesterday saying that my pre-ordered copy of Gigamix Volume 1 won't ship until sometime in July.


  2. Yeah, I was gonna say, hopefully online orders will change to reflect this new shipping date. I really don't want to have to wait another 2 months to get something that's already available in comic shops.

    Also, kudos I guess to UDON for getting it out without too much of a delay. They're on the right track.

  3. @Anonymous: Amazon has received their copies of Gigamix 1, so I would guess that they start sending them out in a week or so.

  4. Cool, I'm looking forward to those adaptations of MegaMan 3 and MegaMan World V.

  5. That last image is awesome.
    Wouldn't it be awesome if Capcom redid the classic MegaMan games to follow the events as told in Ariga's mangas? After seeing something as simple as fighting SlashMan instead of a plain boss room - it just makes too much sense.
    With a bit more event-driven gameplay and a little more story, the reputation of "same old formula" for every MM game would have been long gone.

  6. Ouch! Poor Slash Man. XD And if that wasn't enough, Auto also runs over him in other page!

  7. ffffffffff I can't wait for this. I love the Robot Masters from the third game and the Stardroids and this is just going to be epic beyond words. :'D

  8. I was the first anon who commented on this page... and NOW I just got a message from Amazon saying it's coming in the middle of June!


  9. Just in time for pay day. Vol. 1 of this is so bought!
