I wish I had more time to make a post which best illustrates just why Mega Man is a great comic book to get into, and hopefully this post will at least serve as an impetus for that. If nothing else, I included what tags I could to make looking for previous posts easier.

But the main thing is to spread word that ComiXology is having a line-wide sale on Archie comics, of which Mega Man is one, and between the 50% discount and the already-low price of $1.99 USD per issue, you can basically get the entire run for $55. Less, if you decide to trim the Sonic crossover stuff out (incidentally, the Sonic stuff is on sale, too, and worth reading).

The trades have stalled following the hiatus, leaving that option for reading the series in doubt, so that makes this the best way to get caught up. And hey, maybe buying these will show enough support that Archie decides to take the book off "hiatus."

You can find further details here.

Do note that the single issues are the better value over the trades which are available, unless you really like variant covers (which can be found online anyway) and bonus content.

It's starting again with a new #1 in September.

The end this week set up the upcoming beginning with a tale of Kip Burland, the first Black Hood.

It opened in California, on him looking at the work of one he was hunting.

It was bloody work. )

So all the talk as of late about The Killing Joke reminded me of something. Specifically, I've seen the whole "one bad day" talk elsewhere, perhaps as a sort of homage or tribute? But not in anything as dark or grim as the source material...

So far (two issues), it's been moving with its protagonist.

Its first issue opened in 1776, with a woman on a mission who was caught out.

It then jumped forward to the present day, to another caught.

She was likewise so, by an asserting authority. )

Michael Minetta, hitman and family man, was one of those.

His end came to him.

He was hung by the neck until he died, died, died; he went to hell, hell, hell.

There, he met the master of the place, who let him know where he was.

The devil regretted that he wouldn't be able to do to Michael what he wanted.

" .. unfortunately, the home office has other ideas. "

" .. home.. office?

The devil pointed up.

" Are you talking about.. heaven? You mean, you.. work for heaven? "

The devil crossed his arms. )

They've got brand and ambition.

They've of course got ego too, but it's not grandiose- it's simply stated.

The Fox's Mister Smile, in Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid's second run on the Archie character, was one like that.

The way he introduced himself evinced that. )

It opened on the one to be hung at home.

It showed us his family life.

Then it used that to hint at his work life.

The contrast was very obvious. )

Greg Scott'll be picking those up following Robert Hack's guesting this month.

Gaydos's art and Duane Swiercyznski's writing started this Philadelphia-crime-story take on the Archie Comics character off strongly.

How they ended the initial arc, with the hero confronting the villain, was nicely done.

It was a tight little bit. )

Only one issue left until Archie Comic's "Mega Man" goes on hiatus with issue #55, so let's get up to date, shall we?

Six and 1/3 out of 20 )

It's one painted in Percocet and colored by crime.

It's one where he has to put on the mask of the man he shot (Kip Burland; he's Greg Hettinger) so that he can satisfy the urges calling from within him.

It's one into which two much darker intruded themselves.

They met him in a graveyard. )

One more Mega Man post, this time a single issue which has everything you desire from a comic about a, "super fighting robot," and by that I mean characters debating the need for romantic love among Robots.



6 2/3 out of 20 pages, plus one four panel omake comic )

So I have been reading through the Mega Man series, thanks to posts made here (I had read a bit of it before, but hadn't decided to pick up the whole thing till recently).

And I really just wanted to share the emotional journies of original character Tempo (aka Quake Woman), and Blues (aka Break Man, aka Proto Man) so far.
