After the the heart-wrenching Proto Man arc in the previous two issues, Archie's Mega Man shifts gears into bubblegum territory with a short tale all about the ladies. Roll takes center stage in issue #19, "Roll With It," also starring Kalinka Cossack, original comic character Tempo a.k.a. Quake Woman, and... Splash Woman!?

As I've probably mentioned before, writer Ian Flynn is playing loose with the character introductions -- both Pharaoh Man and Concrete Man have already had some panel time before their official game appearances. This way, they can be properly fleshed out so that their eventual turn will have a greater impact on the comic universe. I like this arrangement because we potentially don't have to wait however many years it'll take until a particular game sequel is adapted in order to see our personal favorite bots in action.

Anwyay, in this story, Roll takes her girlfriends to the beach, but a sudden storm threatens a cruise liner drifting a little too close to shore. With Mega Man undergoing an upgrade to receive the slide ability -- Dr. Light's line, "I just don't understand why it stops working at modes nine and ten," is subtlety at its finest -- it's up to the gals and Light's newest "water rescue unit" to save the day.

Mega Man #19 will arrive in stores on November 14, but subscribers should already be getting the goods in the mail.
