New Mega Man comic compilation book and #16 cover art

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 obviously to compile the four issues into a single paperback tome, as was done with the first two story arcs. You’ll have to wait until August most likely to purchase this compilation, or you can order back issues because you have a sick desire to collect every last piece of memorabilia (speaking from experience here).

Also making the rounds is the cover art for #16, which likewise won’t land until August. It’s the conclusion of the fourth story arc, “Spiritus ex Machina,” which will showcase several new characters like Dr. Lalinde and Quake Woman. This issue will also mark the official appearance of Proto Man in his “Break Man” disguise, hopefully hinting that the next arc will cover Mega Man 3.
