Good adaptations of video games are rare, even in comics. Ones that are also excellent and accessible to children even rarer still. Archie’s Mega Man written by Ian Flynn is both of those things, providing stuff for fans of superhero comics, Asimov-inspired science fiction, and of course the games themselves.

Archie has recently declared that Mega Man will be ending in issue #53 with a three-act wind-down arc after the crossover with the long-running Sonic The Hedgehog comic. Don’t get too close to that ledge yet though, Mega Man fans! (And if you’re a Mega Man fan, I know you’re always way too close to it) Archie has assured us that this is far from the end for the Blue Bomber.

With the success of Archie’s superhero and horror lines (my personal favorites being the moody Afterlife with Archie and the more comedic Archie Versus Predator) Archie is moving the focus for a lot of their work. Their title character Archie is even getting a reboot written by comics legend Mark Waid.

Comicbooks.com has a fascinating interview concerning this. You can check it out by clicking here.

    And to think that just the other day, I had somebody trying to tell me that Capcom hadn’t abandoned Mega Man because there was still the Archie comic…

    Oh, and soon I’ll have the opportunity to re-buy the six NES games. Again. Good times, everybody!

    I thought I heard that they were taking a hiatus from Mega Man and would return later.

  • Vinicius

    They are probably going to blame the fans for not drawing enough fan art.

  • Charles Work

    Well, good thing I picked up this cryogenic stasis pod at the rummage sale last week. Just thaw me out when it comes back. Laters.

  • Nameless App 1989

    It’s on hiatus, not being cancelled. Big Difference.

    • Jose

      And there’s also reasons behind the hiatus, probably due to Archie’s failed kickstarter.
