Wow what was the point of this post? Because it comes off pretty mean spirited towards people who do read Mega Man.


in response to Ryan's post that Universe should be the one hypothetically canned instead of Mega Man. I think that's a bit mean-spirited to people who like having Universe around.

No, it's not really mean spirited when Sonic fans would still have a comic every month. They will still be getting their content and there's no risk of Universe being forced through a reboot.

Mega Man fans have none of that.

Sonic has been going for 20+ years, with 2 series going on right now that are both over 50 issues. Mega Man doesn't have that.

Is there anywhere to find out ballpark estimations on how many people subscribe to each comic? In this case, a direct comparison between Universe and Mega Man? It'd be interesting to see if the numbers for that are the same as well because they are pretty close to each other going by the month-to-month sales graph on the last page.

I think that saying you are content with the situation is as valid as saying that you are not. Plus what Mr.Unsmiley said is that he like having two Sonic books, and not that he hate Mega Man books.

The problem is we don't know what the situation is. Unsmiley implies that either Universe or Mega Man had to be cancelled and they chose Mega Man. Why can't we have both?

As a MM fan who is completely indifferent to Sonic, I can see why Archie chose to keep Universe. Sonic has the history and it's going from two licenses to one (which has to cost less). I get that.

Although why it has to be expressed in the "I love MM" part of the board is a bit suspect, but it's a fair enough sentiment.

I only have one question? Is Megaman ZX Vent or Aile?

Megaman A looks to be Ashe so I'm really hoping ZX is Aile cuz she seems to always be passed over for Vent.

But if it is Ashe, wouldn't ZX be Vent?

then again, covers lie all the time

If Megaman A is Ashe in the issue, then it's likely that ZX will be Vent. But looking at the cover myself, I think that might be Grey using Biometal A, so it could very well be Aile using Biometals Z & X. I don't really have too many thoughts on this issue. On the one hand, I'm glad to see that we'll be getting a look at some more Mega Men's timelines (minus Battle Network and Star Force, but that makes sense). On the other hand, it doesn't help to hide the uncertainty of the comic's future.

Whether this comic does continue or not, I'm more than happy to have read it. It's what got me truly interested in the Mega Man series (at least Classic) and introduced me to some very fun and challenging games. I'll definitely continue to tell others about this wonderful series, and hopefully things'll get back to normal in the future.

Actually the preview shows Grey. You can clearly see the scar on his face and the plugs coming out the sides. Model ZX is also seems to be Aile, because her face is much paler than Vent's would be.

Capcom seems to consider Aile/Grey to be canon, as they're the ones that get drama tracks.

If they are actually planning on retooling Mega Man, that makes it the obvious choice to put on hiatus. Universe has a very specific goal of touching upon various different Sonic characters and a format that showcases them for a certain time period; both achieve its function. Mega Man isn't, or at least shouldn't be, set up that way. So if it can be more successful in another manner it makes sense to take it offline for a while and try to "fix" it.

If they don't and it's a matter of money right now, then its more 50/50 yeah. Though, the charts paint Universe as more successful in terms of sales, though I'm aware there are x factors to that equation.

...anyone else wondering if maybe the reason the series is going on hiatus is that Capcom wants to regear it to be more like the Mega Man cartoon they've announced?
