Cover and Solicitation for Archie's Mega Man #16

It's that time again. A new cover and solicitation has arrived for Mega Man #16 from Archie Comics. It's the epic conclusion to the "Spiritus ex Machina" saga, meaning we'll have ourselves a brand new story arc in the very near future. Here's the solicitation:

“Spiritus ex Machina.’ The epic conclusion! The debate over the future of robotics reaches an explosive turning point, and with multiple lives hanging in the balance, the Robot Masters race against time to save their creators. Will one make the ultimate sacrifice to save their comrades? And will Dr. Lalinde’s tragic secret finally be revealed? Meanwhile, Dr. Wily welcomes the newest robot to his army – who is Break Man?”

Yes; Break Man. A personal favorite of mine, so you bet I'm excited to see how this one turns out.

In related Archie news, the cover for the third trade paperback has also been revealed, viewable here. Mega Man: The Return of Dr. Wily, compiles issue #9 to #12 in a single volume. According to Amazon, the book is due out August 28.

  1. You messed something up with your quote on the TPB.

    BTW, I noticed that Amazon has TPB 04 listed for 12/26/2012.

    Yeah, Proto Man is my favorite too!

  3. I love this comic. A veritable oasis in the Mega Man Desert...

    Seeing Spaz and Bates' awesome art in each issue is more than enough reason to pick these up, but I rather enjoyed the stories so far.

    Hopefully the writing will stay good after they start doing their own thing and no offense, but I'm not a fan of Chad Thomas' style.

    Nothing good lasts forever, but this comic has had one good year thus far, and in the comic world that's an achievement.

  4. hmm this site is really cool and impressive to me.

  5. The cover kind of reminds me of the cover on the Rockman 10 Years History Book.
