IGN's interview with Paul and Ian about Mega Man X showing up in the Mega Man comics and the possibility of a Mega Man X spin-off!!!

It's ABSOLUTELY FANTASAWESOMICAL that we're going to get to see X show up NEXT YEAR in back-up stories of issues #34 and #35 of the regular Mega Man comic! We're a large leap closer to the Mega Man X spin-off that we all want! I'M PUMPED BEYOND ALL LIMITATIONS!! DISCUSS NOAW!!

It's...it's just X...no...no Mega...Mega Man...

Anyhow, cool! I always loved the X series and maybe we will get that X spin-off...it's almost a certainty really.

Well, wasn't expecting that. Lucky lucky. I'm hoping that this doesn't hurt the Classic book, but chances of that are low.

Both those covers are great. :D

What better way to take us out of the post-Blackout stuff than a little MMX story?

EDIT: Oh scratch that. Two stories according to that interview. And both will be penciled by Spaz. Sweetness. :mrgreen:

I agree. The style of the two books would almost certainly be different...plus, I already subscribe to StH and SU and they ARE the same book. Why wouldn't I subscribe to a new book that's going to actually be different? :(hearty laughter):

I started to get interested in Mega Man X, so this should be awesome.

No idea. Where is Battle Network?

They'd have to go through big loops and cross red tape for a Battle Network story to happen.

Oh my gosh. I had a feeling Mega Man X would come at some time or another, but this soon? Well, I ain't complaining. Fantastic news! Bring on X!

In all fairness I think that fear's due to some fans under estimating the current comic we have. I mean to some people, classic Mega Man is the series of video games with no story beyond "Mega Man fights 6-8 robots, and then goes after Dr. Wily".

Heck, truth be told, I feel the comic series actually have the same of good writing as the X games.

The only real difference is that the X Series being darker, while the comics based of the Classic series for the most part goes for optimism (with stories like Curse of Ra Moon being the exception).

This is awesome this is awesome this is awesome. Except I'm very cross with you, Mr. Flynn, for doing something like this that gets announced in the middle of a workday. Now how the heck am I supposed to get anything else done today? Curse you and your stupid magnificent comic books. If I get funny looks in the medical case conference for air guitaring to Storm Eagle's them I'm blaming you.

The X games have terrible writing full of continuity hiccups, bad translations, and just really weird plot devices.

My favorite part about getting an X comic is having Ian iron out all the kinks in the lore.

Not quite. Spaz will be penciling the X stories in #34 and #35, but the main stories will be handled by an artist named "Hesse." I'm not sure who Hesse is yet because there are three comic artists in the CB Database with the last name Hesse, but I'll research it more when I get home this evening.
