Read the First Six Pages of Mega Man Fully Charged Issue #1


Via Previews World, the first six pages of Boom Studios' Mega Man Fully Charged comic have been posted online. Issue #1 is due next Wednesday, August 26th. What's more, we also have our first look at the cover art for issue # 4. All the details below!




First, let's take a look at the credits page. Under "special thanks" we can see Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the Mega Man Series producer. Ryuji Higurashi, who was already art supervisor on the animated series and lastly, there's Taki Enomoto who is currently in charge of movie, TV series, animation deals as well as licensing out Capcom video game IP overseas.

Now let's take a look at the first six pages of the comic book itself. These are in addition to the three that were released earlier. You can check those out here.






We already knew this was going to be a more "mature" take on the Mega Man series and it certainly seems interesting. I, for one, will keep reading!


Also via Preview World, we have our first look at the main cover art for issue #4 drawn by Toni Infante. It's due on November 25 for $4.99. Here's this issue's solicitation:
* Skull Man and his army of Robot Masters have invaded Silicon City - but Mega Man and his mysterious new ally aren't going down without a fight!
* But Mega Man doesn't realize he's playing right into the hands of an enemy he never expected!               

Is Dr. Light joining the fight against Skull Man? Looks like it! Let us know what you think in the comments. Do you plan on buying the first issue next week?

  2. My prediction is that Doctor Light will be kidnapped, and this Mysterious Ally will be Albert Willy who will betray Mega Man and reveal he created Skull Man.

  3. Loving the tone and writing. If this gets really good then I hope it'll get more than just 6 issues.

  4. I don't like it. This feels neither like Mega Man or Fully Charged. It might as well be some alternate take on the X or Zero series.

  5. You know, every time I see a new story here, in my head I'm like "please don't let it be X Dive or FC Comic news"....but this preview.....actually is pretty good. I may wait for the TPB for this series.

  7. In the lead up to the Fully Charged show I was seeing a lot of negativity, but I wanted to at least see it before passing judgement. When it finally did come out I suddenly saw a lot more enthusiasm for it, while I personally didn't care for it at all (although I didn't hate it).

    I find it interesting that despite the show being cancelled we're getting a comic sequel, especially one that looks darker in tone. The art style in particular is a far cry from the show (and very unlike Hitoshi Ariga's manga or the Archie comics).

  8. Wow... this is interesting. Still don’t like the teenagers design choice... and Megaman looks bad imho... and this Mega-Mini is really dumb. But the setting looks awesome, skullman looks awesome. Random bots remind me of Casshern Sins

  10. Real talk: anyone remember that ReBoot comic, Paradigms Lost?
    Well, this reminds me of that.

    Make what you will of that statement.

  11. Honestly kind of weird that they'd take this tone in adapting a kids show. Makes me wonder if people even have an idea of who Mega Man is supposed to be for.

    1. I don't think people in the Megaman fandom knows who Megaman's target audience is.

    2. I don't think Capcom knows who the target audience is... They wouldn't have made Boom in the first place.

    3. Or rather, Capcom wouldn't have licensed it.

    4. Nope. They have no clue who Mega Man or the other characters at all. Its why they replaced Mega Man with an even more obnoxious one-dimensional Ben Tennyson and his robot sister Roll with a boring and bossy human version of Gwen Tenn.

  12. For the Warner Brothers, they created a channel called "The Cartoon Network". It is a cartoon channel where all characters from Warner Brothers, DC Comics and anime are aired in their network. Disney has their own channel too, but more on fantasy and kiddy stuff. manga dex
