The first issue of Boom Studios' Mega Man Fully Charged drops next Wednesday, August 26th. To keep your appetites whet until then, the publisher has passed along three sample pages. Check 'em out below!
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 17, 2020) – BOOM! Studios, in partnership with WildBrain Ltd. and Dentsu Entertainment USA, today revealed a first look at MEGA MAN: FULLY CHARGED, a brand new six-issue comic book series from Mega Man: Fully Charged television series writers A.J. Marchisello and Marcus Rinehart, along with artist Stefano Simeone (Read Only Memories) and acclaimed comics creators and TV/film executive producers, creators, and writers, Man of Action Entertainment.
Based on the television series of the same name, MEGA MAN: FULLY CHARGED features heroes like Mega Man, Rush, and Dr. Light in fully charged adventures battling the wickedest of Robot Masters led by Dr. Wily.
After Mega Man’s father Dr. Light is kidnapped, a shocking truth rocks Mega Man’s world as it seems the Robot Masters know more about his secret history than he does. But as Dr. Wily’s machinations trigger Mega Man’s forgotten memories of the brutal human/robot war, our hero is left to question just who he is and if he can trust anything or anyone – including the man he calls father.
The animated television series Mega Man: Fully Charged is based on the Mega Man video game franchise from Capcom. Developed and produced by Man of Action Studios, Dentsu Entertainment USA, and WildBrain, the series originally aired on Cartoon Network in the United States. In the series, regular robo-kid, Aki Light, discovers secret programming and transforms into Mega Man to battle the wickedest of Robot Masters in Fully Charged adventures!
Print copies of MEGA MAN: FULLY CHARGED #1, featuring main cover art by Toni Infante (Champions), as well as variant cover art by artist Miguel Mercado (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), InHyuk Lee (Seven Secrets), and more, are scheduled to be available on August 26, 2020 exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the one nearest you) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
I love how the last blurb is "This can't be good"ReplyDelete
He's so LANKYYYYYReplyDelete
im still excited,but come on the art sucksReplyDelete
the art looks so good great lighting great colors the darker tone is so clear seems like skull man is really bitter and i cant wait to see more robot masters and the hard wars this all is gonna be so interesting i hope this comic lasts a long timeReplyDelete
holy crap this looks EPICReplyDelete
BOOM! Studios has done it again
Well, that's... different. Reminds me of how TMNT started gritty and became family friendly. Looks like Mega Man will do the inverse. But then again, both have gritty comics and friendly animations.ReplyDelete
I'm not really a fan of the art style. mega man looks like he's in dire need of a cup of coffee.ReplyDelete
ewww this is ugly as hell at he same level than the new thundercatsReplyDelete
Hit a sore spot there. They could have finished the 2011 reboot, just to end it if nothing else.Delete
Hell, they could have made episodes following up the end of the original.
We got Roar.
Screw. That. Noise.
This actually looks pretty cool so far.ReplyDelete
You know... they could have removed Mega Mini from this comic... and just pretended he never existed... and I wouldn't have minded at all...ReplyDelete
Ok... I admit I never saw the TV show, but... WTF did I just read?ReplyDelete
The art isn't bad necessarily, but I don't think of Mega Man when I see it. I haven't seen Fully Charged, and even so its not sending out that kind of vibe either.ReplyDelete
I question Megaman's proportions and anatomy, but on the whole it doesn't look THAT bad.ReplyDelete
The coloring and shading is good, there are some nice action shots, the baddies look kinda cool and backgrounds have a fine amount of detail.
I can't say much about the writing based on just 3 pages but it doesn't seem like the unmitigated disaster as some claim it to be.
I like this art style more than most of the covers shown. From this, the story seems to still be quippy, but darker. I wonder how that will work...ReplyDelete
Well, the comic book adaptation of The Protomen's fan music certainly looks nice. If you're into "grimdark," I mean.ReplyDelete
This bit isn't as bad as I was expecting, tbh.ReplyDelete
Everything beyond Mega Man's design looks great. If they accommodated his costume to fit his new proportions in this version, it'd look decent. The cartoon did a good job at stylizing Aki's body to really work with his Mega Man form, but here he looks like an older teen in a shoddily-made halloween costume. My only complaint though. I liked Fully Charged and I can see myself really enjoying this.ReplyDelete
The arms and legs are proportioned in a very goofy, diseased, sickening way. I hate it almost as much as I hate X's redesign in Teppen.ReplyDelete
Ruined it, by being so off the mark with Megaman's "art style".... One shade of blue, off being a stick figure...ReplyDelete
