Mega Man #49 Solicit.

Postby SonicBlueRanger » Fri Feb 13, 2015 10:39 am

There's also one for the Dawn of X trade.

MEGA MAN #49
On the eve of SONIC/MEGA MAN: WORLDS UNITE comes "Prisoners of War": Dr. Wily built his Robot Masters as tools of war—but when war is over, what happens to these mechanical servants? Mega Man has hopes that they can become tools of peace! Of course, not everyone agrees with Mega Man’s positive point of view. Will his optimism lead to his destruction? Meanwhile, who is the mysterious Mr. X, and what connection does he have to the past, present and future of Mega Man? This story leads into the next mega cross-title crossover “WORLDS UNITE!” so don't miss a moment of the action! Featuring cover art from Mega Man rising star Edwin Huang and a "Renaissance Man" variant cover from Jason Piperberg!

Script: Ian Flynn
Art: Ryan Jampole, Gary Martin, John Workman and Evan Stanley
Cover: Edwin Huang
Renaissance Man Variant Cover: Jason Piperberg
On Sale Date: 5/20
32-page, full color comic
$3.99 U.S


I'm pretty interested to see how this ties in exactly. It sounds like a really good stand alone issue though.

I like this story idea. I'm not sure I've seen it before, Mega Man trying to rebuild the Robot Masters Wily builds as reformed citizens. Usually Wily just keeps them around afterwards. I'm sure Mr. X will steal them or something, but I really like Mega Man trying to help them out.

They well they been talking about doing that for a while, even since the series 2 masters appeared, Both 2 and 3 robots are relatively in good shape I think 3 has all their bodies they just need to be recovered and repaired. Plus I think Light owns them now so he can contract them out like his other Master. Docter needs that money for a new lab :D

Hm, definitely an interesting story idea-it will be interesting to see how the Wily Masters fare turned to civilian purposes. Of course, I have my doubts about Shadow Man-not only did Wily make him as a Robot assassin essentially, but before that he was a creation of Ra Moon. I wonder if the whole concept will play into Worlds Unite-might be fun if the Robot Masters are trying to stop/save Dr. Wily.

Mr. X is Mega Man X. Past, present, and future line totally give it away.

Yeah, all you need is just to take one good look at one picture of Mr. X from MM6 and will tell right away who it really is.

Worse comes to worse, they could always staff a theme park...

Archie is obviously doing something different with thecharacterdisguise, what with wanted posters appearing throughout the series so far.

I don't know. Considering that Wily had to use the Chaos Emeralds to create time clones of them, I'm wondering if that's an indicator that the RMs in question will be denied a rebuild/reprogramming.

I don't exactly hate the crossovers, but I do hate the overlap between them and the usual ongoing. I wish it could just be some other thing on the side, not messing up with the narrative flow of the proper book. Sigh.

The artwork's already an improvement. Really dig the almost-chibi style Jampole's got going here.

And hearty laughter at Mega Man's burn on Quick Man and seeing his reaction. :(hearty laughter):

Yeah, those preview pages look really nice. I think some panels could use backgrounds where there aren't ones, but otherwise I really like it. This is probably the most boyish Rock has looked so far.
