Archie Comics Planning to Adapt Mega Man X
It was only a matter of time before this happened. IGN has revealed that, beginning in February 2014, Archie Comics will adapt the Mega Man X storyline. Before you jump for joy, know that this is NOT a new monthly series. Rather, the Mega Man X story will be depicted within the pages of the current Mega Man comic as a back-up story beginning in issue #34.
As for the prospect of X getting his own set of comics, Archie's Ian Flynn says it's a possability. "We really want to bring people a Mega Man X book, so we need the people to demand it. Be passionate and be loud, people!" Flynn promises the back-up adaption will stick true to the game's continuity. Matter of fact, the first stories will chart the months leading up to Sigma's bloody revolution.
