When we saw the solicitation for Archie's Mega Man #5, we learned a little more of what we could expect from the comic outside the confines of the games' stories. Today, we have not one, but two new covers to share with you. Well, sort of.
The first is the cover for issue #6, which is part two of the storyline "Time Keeps Slipping." Interestingly, the other cover is not a variant, but rather a cover for the first Mega Man trade paperback, which shares the cover of the first issue. So even though Mega Man #2 is only now getting into peoples' hands, you can catch up on the entire collected first story arc when this hits sometime later this year.
To see the covers and read what issue #6 is about, just keep scrolling down. But note that these do not appear to be full solicits; certain info common to those is not available here, including the release dates. This could also potentially mean that we are merely seeing just one cover for #6, and that there is a variant still to be revealed; we don't know yet.
Thanks for the tip, Merricks!
