Let's get a Mega Man X book

Postby Mavrickindigo » Wed Apr 16, 2014 9:51 pm

So we all know that the fate of getting a Mega Man X book depends on how well the Mega Man comic does. With "Dawn of X" coming up, we need to show that we want an X book. So how is the best way of doing this? Should subscribers go and buy variant covers? will buying digital over print factor? How about trades? Would they be counted separately or all together? will they count at all? What can we do to show we want X?

Being able to get the books on time again would be a good start...>_>

I will support Mega Man X to the very end! Of course, getting the comics on time would certainly help the cause, as RadRed89 said.

Kidnap Ian off the side of the road after a car accident and force him to write X. Then make plans for an artist to illustrate.

Force him how? Put him in a VR world filled with orange Aussie raccoons?

I'm pretty sure there's no "forcing" involved in Ian wanting to write for an X comic. :P Just gotta get the heads of the bizz to give the final go ahead.

Wait until after the crossover or SDCC. Then we might get something.

Can't we just have a Mega Man Universe book? Just give X an occasional arc (for when Time Man does a voyeur thing in the Time Institute) then devote the other arcs to how the Robot Masters are having adventures during their time?

How about no arcs but one RM per issue? Then the story ties up in the end or an arc?

If we wait that long, it may be too late. We have to show archie that people will buy an X book, so that means everyone needs to buy multiple copies, right?

if I got the money, I'm going to get the regular covers, the variant covers, and teh TPB

^^^Because purchasing something in a timely fashion helps to prove that fans want it so badly that they'll pay now.

Couldn't we just wait for the paperbacks? I seem to remember hearing something that said they make more money in the long run and en-mass rather than comic books by themselves.

Either way I'm waiting for them... (hearty laughter). Books seem to last longer and not turn yellow as fast. >_> I'm not buying the same book twice just because a cover is different. :b

well i just subscribed earlier today, only to find out there was a 30% off coupon on the archie store that goes bad after easter. Hopefully that extra bit of money I could have saved goes toward the creation of an X book.

But do they have enough support that would allow for the series to go on overall and would be a substitute for supporting it monthly?

Then just make sure to get every issue then.
