Here's a Better Look at Dr. Wily From Boom!'s Mega Man Fully Charged Comic


The variant cover art for Mega Man Full Charged issue #2 just dropped and a closer look at the comic's Dr. Wily incarnation. He's clad in a purple suit, wearing a purple tie laced with the letter "W" and, to complete the package, suspenders over the shirt from Rocko's Modern Life. Oh my.

We know next to nothing about the Boom! Studios Dr. Wily. This cover, illustrated by Miguel Mircado, gives off a very eccentric-like quality. A little bit of Doc Brown or Bill Nye? Then again Wily is depicted as an enigmatic figure on the standard issue #2 cover. Regardless, it will be interesting to see where Boom! takes this version of the character. It could be unlike any Wily we've seen before.

Mega Man Fully Charged issue #1 goes on sale this August followed by issue #2 in late September.

  6. Well it's consistent anyway.

    I do like the W's on his suspenders and tie though. Wily all about his brand.

  10. Dang, I actually wish I had a suit that brightly colored.
    We'll see how this comic plays out. It might crash and burn, but it might soar like Gyro Man.

  11. In the original art style I think it might have worked. But this art style is so tonally jarring it's like they don't understand not only what's appealing about the show, but about Megaman as a whole.

    And I, for one, have already signed up for this at my local comic book shop.

  14. It cracks me up how they keep shopping mega man around and just let the art work get worse and worse and worse. It's like first 4 figures got a comic license or something.
