Alas, we won't be reading this one until December. Until then, do enjoy the cover art. You can check out the variant cover at Destructoid. It's quite nifty, if I do say so myself.
The inclusion of Centaurman in the normal cover intrigues me.ReplyDelete
Calling it right now. Ra Moon's remains coagulate into Ra Thor. Who will serve as Archie's evil rival for the original arcs, until Bass is invented.ReplyDelete
I wonder if they plan on introducing Zero at some point in the future, because why not?ReplyDelete
Doubtful. Unless they do a Megaman X comic, the best they can do is a cameo in a Power Fighter story arc. And that wouldn't happen until after the MM8 arc.Delete
Wow! That looks totally epic! I can't wait to get my hands on it and read...ReplyDelete
Oh, wait. "SCRIPT: Ian Flynn".
Damn! Never mind...
Now, I am not a mind-reader. But I suspect that part of the reason you haven't yet gone to Bumbleking and taken your complaints directly to Ian is because it's much safer to take pot-shots at him here. Is it REALLY about "improving the quality of the comic" if all you're doing is being a disruptive jerk on a site than Ian likely doesn't visit?Delete
(And yes, I am going to keep telling you to go to Bumbleking until you actually do it. And don't try pulling that "he doesn't read comments on his dA" excuse on me; Ian doesn't use him dA much anymore, due to work, and thus it is not he best place to try and reach him.)
Actually, what Flynn doesn't read is derogatory or critical messages. See, he and his fans share a common philosophy: "Ignorance is bliss".Delete
So how can he see if a comment is derogatory or critical without reading them?Delete
You just making a excuse after another.
I have seen Ian reply to criticism on Bumbleking, which is where you should be going if you want him to listen to you.Delete
To name a specific example, over in the "Mecha Sally" thread, people were complaining about how the arc dragged on too long and didn't seem to actually accomplish much (or at least, Mecha Sally herself was a bit disappointing). Ian acknowledged this and said he'll be sticking to shorter arcs that get the point across more easily, while still having an overarching larger plot in the long run.
(As for derogatory comments, those do not count as useful criticism no matter how hard you try to justify it.)
