Preview Pages for Mega Man #53

Worlds Unite is over (you can read everything we've got on it here), and things are back to normal in Mega Man's world: no Reploids, no talking animals, and no karate masters who throw balls of chi from their palms. Everything seems peaceful again, but... well, see for yourself in the preview pages and solicitation for the 53rd issue of Archie's Mega Man comic, which hits comic shops tomorrow.

Be sure to check back soon for our review here as well!

The BLUE BOMBER is BACK from the events of “Worlds Unite” and is ready to fight for justice! That’s all well and good, if there was actually someone to fight! In “Blue Shift,” peace has finally come to Mega Man’s life—but is that a bad thing?  Could it be possible that our super fighting robot has come to actually love the battles he was once so opposed to?  Meanwhile, Dr. Wily plots something sinister from the shadows, reaching an even newer low for the mad doctor!  It’s an extended curtain call as we come to the end of the Mega Man series! Featuring cover art from Jason Piperberg and a BOT UNDER FIRE variant from superstar Thomas Pitilli!

In Guts Man's case, would the appropriate term be "lay down your arms"?

"Not everything is a crisis." Unless you're DC, that is.

Dear Guts Man: That joke is never funny.


Wait a sec, real talk: Guts Man might be on to something here. Do you think Mega Man got recycled like the rest when Dr. Light kicked the bucket?
