As you may recall, I recently interviewed Ian Flynn, the writer of Archie's Mega Man comic. When I was trimming down the Skype text dump so that it didn't run 50 pages, I chopped off a bit towards the end when Ian briefly mentioned the story arc following the Mega Man 2 adaptation. It was very vague and I figured we'd hear specific details in the near future, so I left that part on the cutting board. Lo and behold, cover art and a synopsis for issue #13 has arrived!

The new arc is entitled "Spiritus ex Machina" and will be an original tale that introduces some new characters plus familiar faces that technically don't appear in the Mega Man canon at this point. Dr. Cossack and Pharaoh Man make their debut appearances as will Rush, then there's newcomer Dr. LaLinde, who is possibly Dr. Light's love interest. About time ol' Tommy boy got some action!

Now, what's this about a black sheep? Apparently, Dr. Wily will be exploring the Lanfront Ruins, a location featured in the Japan-exclusive Super Adventure Rockman, an ill-fated FMV game that Keiji Inafune has deeply regretted. Ian was totally serious when he said he'll be referencing every corner of the Mega Man universe, even the red-headed stepchildren. Also, "Emerald Spears"? Clever girl...

Oh, and if you are hitting up the TMMN link below, go on and give their interview with Ian Flynn a read! They were a whole lot more professional than I was, let me tell you!

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
