Mega Man #55 is MIA This Week


Astute comic readers have no doubt noticed an empty spot on this week's newsstands. As you may recall, Archie Comics delayed the 55th and final issue of Mega Man from November 18th to December 2nd. Well it's the 2nd... and the issue is quite literally nowhere to be found.

Red flags went up when, according to The Mega Man Network, solicitations were absent from PREVIEWSworld listings. Issue #55 does not appear in the "New Releases" page for the week of 12/2, let alone any core Archie comic (save for an Archie Double Digest). What's more the publisher's official Twitter hasn't said a word. It's all quiet on that front.

Curiously, Comixology has the issue up for pre-order with a December 9th release date. Pending word from Archie, though, it's safe to say this may be a placeholder date. We'll keep an ear to the ground - stay tuned.

  1. So sad, and a waste of gas going to the closest comic shot 30 minutes from home.

  2. Frequent delays do come before the official announcements of a Mega Man project being cancelled, this is just par for the course.

    1. The comic is already pretty much cancelled after these last couple issues.

      Hiatus is just a fancy word for canceled.

  3. Archie is the worst publisher in the comics industry.
    Wish Udon or IDW had the rights to this comic instead...

    1. Is worth noting every single Archie publication besides their main Archie line has been seriously delayed, it's not just Mega Man.

      They're obviously bleeding out money somewhere and are cutting back on the licensed stuff.

    1. That's a pretty selfish thought.

    3. Um.. it wasn't about the art, that's subjective. You saying you're glad it's the final comic, is the selfish thought.

    5. It's not the final comic release, it's the last comic before they go into hiatus. So it's not the real final issue, they're taking a long break after they release this issue, so they will go back to making more Archie MegaMan comics once they returned from hiatus. And what you said as the truth is BS. We know you hate the Archie MegaMan series, Prof MegaMan. Honestly, I smh at this fanbase's childish attitude.

    6. What makes it selfish is that there are people who actually enjoyed this comic and are sad to see it go, and all you can say is that you're glad the comic is ending over a single issue's artwork.

      Grow up.
