BOOM! Studios is launching a six-issue Mega Man miniseries based on the Mega Man: Fully Charged animated series. The comic sees the return of Mega Man: Fully Charged TV writers A.J. Marchisello and Marcus Rinehart in collaboration with artist Stefano Simeone (Read Only Memories) and acclaimed comics creators and TV/film executive producers Man of Action Entertainment.
Mega Man: Fully Charged introduces a new look for the titular character in the popular video game franchise. The miniseries also sees Mega Man fighting alongside Rush and Dr. Light against Dr. Wily and his Robot Masters.
“We are excited to see the expansion of the Mega Man: Fully Charged television series into comics, a medium we love so dearly. AJ and Marcus have been with the show from the beginning, and along with Stefano are delivering a fantastic, slick looking and modern Mega Man tale.” Man of Action Entertainment said in a statement.
“Having worked on the Mega Man: Fully Charged television series, we’re honored to help usher this story from screen to page. Man of Action’s unique take is a Mega-fan’s dream, and thanks to BOOM! Studios, that dream has come true,” Marchisello and Rinehart said.
A description of Mega Man: Fully Charged reads, “After Mega Man’s father Dr. Light is kidnapped, a shocking truth rocks Mega Man’s world as it seems the Robot Masters know more about his secret history than he does. But as Dr. Wily’s machinations trigger Mega Man’s forgotten memories of the brutal human/robot war, our hero is left to question just who he is and if he can trust anything or anyone — including the man he calls father.”
“I can’t believe I’m working on something that I grew up with and enjoyed so much when I was a kid,” Simeone added. “I’m very happy to be working on a new Mega Man comic book, and I can’t wait to share my enthusiasm and excitement on the pages of this series with readers and fans everywhere!”
“You’ve never seen Mega Man like this before,” BOOM! Studios Editor Matthew Levine continued. “Joe, A.J., Marcus, and Stefano have created a high-octane adventure that explodes off every page. Longtime fans and new readers alike are sure to find everything they love and expect from the character, but packaged in the rich and provoking world of the Mega Man: Fully Charged television series.”
Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 goes on sale in August from BOOM! Studios.
