Archie's Mega Man comic sadly going on hiatus soon

2015-06-18 09:00:00·  2 minute read   ·  Chris Carter@DtoidChris


The Mega Man comic series from Archie is probably my favorite comic out right now. It manages to give us a splash of nostalgia while incorporating some interesting storylines, and of course, it helped birth two Sonic collaborations, which is like a childhood dream come true. I've collected every issue to date (it's on issue 50 right now), but sadly, it looks like the future of the series is in question.

While it has not been canceled, ComicBook.com reports that the series is going on indefinite hiatus after issue #55. Archie editor Vincent Lovallo has confirmed that it is not necessarily permanent, and not Capcom's decision, but their own. In short, it's no secret that the Sonic comics have been much more fruitful for Archie as a whole. I've asked Archie directly about expanding to a new Mega Man X subseries multiple times, and the answer always seems to imply that there isn't a demand for it -- meanwhile, Sonic got his third Archie comic series this year with Sonic Boom.

Well, I don't know what to make of this. I mean, for all intents and purposes it sounds temporary, but you never know, and in any case Mega Man will be powering down for a while. I was happy with the way things were going with the Mega Man series, since Archie was doing what Capcom couldn't -- keeping the spirit alive.
