  1. Whoa, there's something funny about Rock's robot ear things.

    And Bombman needs a dentist.

  2. Nice cover. It's good they're giving adequate exposure to the original robot masters. I think they should take a chronological approach. The cartoon plugged them at random, and it felt kinda awkward.

    The art here is good, reminiscent of the Rockman: Complete Works style. BombMan looks nuts, which really suits him. It reminds me of the Dr.Wily Show.

    I hope this comic has a nice, long, healthy run before they taint it with crossovers from other Megaman series' (This means you, especially X series) Just say NO to Zero, Archie!.

  3. Don't forget crossovers with Sonic the Hedgehog
