Mega Man issue #5 marked the beginning of a new story arc for Archie's comic series, one not limited to the boundaries of the games' stories. Issue #6 looks to continue this trend, picking up right after the humble beginnings of the "Time Keeps Slipping" arc:
"Time Keeps Slipping,” Part 2. Dr. Wily has vanished! Roll has been kidnapped! Dr. Light is in federal custody! What’s Mega Man to do? The blue bomber teams up with Cut Man and Ice Man to investigate the ruins of Wily’s castle and search for clues, but what dangers await within? And who are these two, new, powered-up Robot Masters?"
Issue #6 will entail 32 pages, retailing for $2.99. An official release date is forthcoming.
In related news, we have official confirmation of the first Archie Mega Man trade paperback volume that was leaked via Amazon a few months ago. As speculated, the single volume book will collect issues 1-4, representing the complete "Let The Games Begin" story arc. Furthermore, the book will also play host to a collection of variant covers, sketches, and "special features." Pre-order your copy at Amazon.
