The Making of the Cover for Archie's Mega Man #17

A couple of weeks ago, we got our first look at the two covers for the 17th issue of Archie's Mega Man comic book series, which is poised to take a look at the origin of everyone's favorite Bro-bot, Proto Man. Chad Thomas, who created the art for one of those covers, recently took to his blog to showcase all of the possibilities created for Archie to choose from for his contribution. And, given the marquee attraction of the story, that means lots and lots of Proto Man art!

You can view all of the action-packed roughs, as well as a large version of the final product in all its splendor, at Thomas's blog here. And along the way, he details the process which led from its conception to the finished work, all over the course of three days!
