NYCC: Archie Comics to publish a Mega Man comic

Mega Man is so hot right now. Tons of new games are coming and to compliment all of them Archie Comics announced at NYCC that they will be publishing a brand new Mega Man comic. Now don’t instantly slap our forehead here, as any comic fan will tell you Archie Comics does some good stuff. They also do the Sonic comic, which is not so good.

The new comic book will be drawn by Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante and written by infamous Archie action/adventure writer Ian Flynn. I’m not sure why he’s infamous; maybe he killed somebody to get the job or something. The comics will be told from the persepctive of Rock/Mega Man and chronicle his battles against Dr. Wiley and his army of evil robots.

I’m ten years out of the comic book loop, but judging from the cover and preview page it’s looking pretty solid. I’m definitely digging the artwork as I think it fits perfectly with Mega Man’s universe.
