Today, Mega Man #55 should be available to everyone. I know it’s gotten in the hands of subscribers and some have already gotten it digitally, but today should mark the day where everyone can grab it. This has been the only series I’ve been able to totally call my own, and it’s been an honor and a privilege to work on it. I’ve worked with many incredibly talented people through Mega Man. I’ve met many amazing, passionate fans. I got to (indirectly) work with The Megas. It’s been a wild, wonderful experience.
As you go through Mega Man #55, I hope you take your time with each page. Each one was meticulously crafted, some taking two pages to script, packed with subtle details and hints of what I’d hoped to accomplish over the coming years. I really hope you all enjoy this final, loving send-off to not only the comic, but to the franchise on a whole.
I don’t know what the future holds for Mega Man comics. If and when they return, I really hope to be a part of them. Until then, we have the new cartoon to look forward to. And who knows? Maybe one day Volnutt will get off the moon, and we’ll be waiting for him with new comics in hand. Hope springs eternal.
