recent Amazon listing, Mega Man 2: Time Keeps Slipping is due out in March 2012. The book's subtitle presents a dead giveaway to the contents of the book: a chronicle of all four issues in the Time Keeps Slipping Story arc; the very first arc in Archie's continuity to break away from the game's stories.
Time Keeps Slipping will encompass 112-pages, retailing for $11.99. If the first trade paper back is any indication, we can infer Vol. 1 will contain a handful of additional content like sketches and and variant covers. Of course, more content is probably forthcoming, what with the book having not been officially announced by Archie just yet.
Trade paperbacks are an excellent platform to get caught up with story arcs quickly, particularly if you don't have a subscription or if you're just slacking off on your single-issue purchases. It would be great if Archie made a trend of releasing TBPs with every arc, especially for the benefit of those who may fall behind.
