Mega Man #55 is MIA This Week
Astute comic readers have no doubt noticed an empty spot on this week's newsstands. As you may recall, Archie Comics delayed the 55th and final issue of Mega Man from November 18th to December 2nd. Well it's the 2nd... and the issue is quite literally nowhere to be found.
Red flags went up when, according to The Mega Man Network, solicitations were absent from PREVIEWSworld listings. Issue #55 does not appear in the "New Releases" page for the week of 12/2, let alone any core Archie comic (save for an Archie Double Digest). What's more the publisher's official Twitter hasn't said a word. It's all quiet on that front.
Curiously, Comixology has the issue up for pre-order with a December 9th release date. Pending word from Archie, though, it's safe to say this may be a placeholder date. We'll keep an ear to the ground - stay tuned.
