It appears as though I've skipped a few solicitations for upcoming Mega Man comic issues, notwithstanding the Sonic / Mega Man crossover business. I know, right? For shame!
The latest Archie Mega Man I've discussed with you g... more
I'm still reeling from this morning's Mega Man shenanigans. I can at least take comfort in knowing that some companies still give a damn about the little blue dude. Like Archie Comics, for example...
As you are already aware ... more
The gap has been bridged! The Archie Mega Man comic is ready to kick off the Mega Man 3 adaptation, but not before wrapping up the current "Spiritus ex Machina" arc. In #16, the Emerald Spears terrorist group has detonated th... more
In Sonic Generations, levels plucked from throughout Sonic's history were updated and strung together in celebration of the hedgehog's longevity. In a similar fashion, Archie Comics has gone through its Sonic the Hedgehog arc... more
I keep being told that it's summer. I suppose that's a matter of perspective, really. Or at least a matter of hemispheres. It's certainly meant to be summer over here in Scotland, but it's hard to tell through all the rain an... more
Since it launched earlier this year, Namco Bandai's ShiftyLook has aimed to keep old and forgotten Namco properties alive via free webcomics. Klonoa may not be all that forgotten in certain circles, but I doubt anyone would c... more
This week at San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced the inclusion of Cyborg and Nightwing in NetherRealm Studio's Injustice: Gods Among Us. Below are the latest screens of t... more
I was a Sega child, so I was always in the "Sonic > Mario" camp. I've also been a Mega Man diehard (big surprise, right?) since his very first game. So while schoolyard kiddies spoke passionately of the rivalry between Mar... more
We're just trucking along in the latest Archie Mega Man arc, which began in issue #13. The "Spirit ex Machina" storyline is approaching its climax in #15, as Mega Man, Pharaoh Man, Elec Man, and the original character Quake W... more
"Maaaaaan, Mobius sure is boring around he-- *URK*!"
While the upcoming Archie Sonic Universe story arc revolves Silver the Hedgehog and his Secret Freedom Fighters, the arc following that will star the OG gangsta crew, the C... more
There was another... who came before you... he was a hero and your brother and my son...
He fought the darkness... the darkness won...
This September, Archie will publish Mega Man #17, kicking off a new arc that officially in... more
Over the past few years, Archie Comics has been doing a spectacular job of re-issuing old Sonic comics via compilation books. Not only do they help recent fans catch up on the series' long (and often obtuse and confusing) his... more
Not to be outdone but that other blue upstart, Sonic is getting his own comic variant exclusive to the San Diego Comic-Con. Well, scratch that -- Sonic doesn't actually feature. The sketch variant that Archie is making availa... more
Those pesky "emotions." How dare videogames make me feel things! How dare artists like Zac Gorman and Matthew Taranto remind me that videogames make me feel things!
You can add Aussie illustrator Jake Lawrence to that the lis... more
Slowly but surely, I'm catching up on all the non-E3 news I missed while I was in Los Angeles last week. And when it comes to Mega Man-related stories, I try to be on top of them like white on rice (as though that wasn't obvi... more
So, I'm not liking what I've seen of The Amazing Spider-Man film. On the other hand, the game appears to be coming along perfectly. With a combat system inspired by the Rocksteady Batman games, an open-world setup similar to ... more
Batman's back (in LEGO form) and he brought his friends along for sequel in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Not just Robin, though. Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are among the blocky heroes, and The Joker and ... more
Since the sneak peek back in January, we knew that May's issue of Mega Man would kick off an original story involving brand new characters. Right away, flashes of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog and its overwhelming bloated suppo... more
If you are in Toronto this week, you might want to scoot on by the Comics vs. Games exhibition, hosted by TIFF Nexus and led by They Bleed Pixels creator Miguel Sternberg. The main draw of the event is a set of five games, e... more
Archie's Sonic Universe spin-off is all well and good, but what's going on in the main series? Next month marks the comic's 236th issue, so yeah, a whole damn lot is going on. In fact, I've mentioned before that one of the co... more
Time for your daily dose of Mega Man malarkey! Aren't you guys glad you have a nut job like me who loves to harp on a single topic incessantly?
This month marks the end of Archie's Mega Man 2 adaptation, so the next step is o... more
Villains are often the standout characters in any work of fiction because, whereas the heroes are typically clean-cut and bland, villains don't impose any limits on themselves. They can be as d*ckish as they want and don't ta... more
The Archie Mega Man series continues! We've finally made it to issue #12, the one with the sweet Euro MM2 box art homage cover. With this, the Mega Man 2 story arc comes to a close, but before the issue hits shelves, you can ... more
I talk about the Mega Man comic sooooo friggin' much that it's easy to forget the other videogame property under Archie Comic's umbrella: Sonic the Hedgehog. I'm nowhere as big a Sonic nut as a Mega Man one, but I do enjoy re... more
Namco Bandai is going through its archives to bring back older intellectual properties, but not in the usual way. Rather, these games will be reimagined as free webcomics on ShiftyLook, which executive VP and representative d... more
After the current Mega Man 2 story arc is complete, the Archie Mega Man series will be taking a break from game adaptations to do a little world-building. The newest arc, "Spiritus ex Machina," will mark the comic appearance ... more
Issue #10 of the Archie Mega Man series is on its way to subscribers as we speak, but if you feel like being a dirty little sneak, you can scope an unfinished page from issue #11! It's almost like cheating!
In the... more
Slowly but surely, I'm turning Destructoid into my own personal Mega Man fan blog. You don't mind, right?
The newest Archie Mega Man comic, issue #10, will be arriving in specialty shops on Wednesday and on newsstands by next... more
Waitaminute! Didn't I already post the cover to Archie Comics' Mega Man issue #13? Why, yes I did. That's the normal newsstand / subscriber cover, though. This is the variant cover that you'll only be able to find in comic sh... more
Switching gears from Mega Man, let's talk about Archie's other, much bigger videogame comic, Sonic the Hedgehog. This one might interest some of you non-Sonic comic fans, as it offers clues towards the upcoming Sonic the Hedg... more
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 men... more
Anybody remember the monthly Mega Man series that Archie Comics started earlier this year? Well, SURPRISE! It's still running! After news that initial sales had been less than stellar, I was worried that it would get that ax ... more
This indie comic book was published back in June, but it's only now coming to my attention. Still, I figure not many of you guys caught wind of this either, and it might make a sweet gamer gift for the holidays.

This weekend we poked our heads into Wizard World's Chicago Comic Convention. If you aren't familiar, Chicago ComiCon is quite a bit smaller than any of the happenings at SDCC, but definitely has its own flavor. It... more

Now, I've never been much of a fighting game player and I grav... more
Vogster is really pushing out the marketing boat for its PSP brawler, Unbound Saga. Launching simultaneously with a DC publication of the same name, Unbound Saga tells the story of Rick Ajax, a comic book character who knows ... more
I'm no comic book fan, but I'm looking forward to Batman: Arkham Asylum. I like it when a comic book game comes out that doesn't feel the need to attach itself to a movie release, and this particular game looks like it was ma... more
Actvision has sent us some new information and Xbox 360 screenshots of the upcoming multi-platform title, Spider-Man: Friend of Foe. Aren't Spidey and his pals looking adorable? I just want to pinch their little super-cheeks,... more
The latest batch of Mass Effect screenshots may look exactly like the ones we've seen before, but we're excited to have them anyway. Once again, we find Commander Sheppard in a Robert Summa haircut roaming arou... more
