Fans Culminate to Create Zero 10th Anniversary Compilation

Following in line with Mega Man Zero's 10th anniversary, passionate fans in Japan are putting together something pretty special. It's a community collaboration called the "Rockman Zero 10th Anniversary Anthology." This self published book (aka doujinshi), contains 110 pages of short comics and illustrations by talented Zero fans. What's more, it also has an interview with Serou, the person behind Yama Tai Koku - one of the most prominent makers of Rockman garage kits.

The Anthology is set to go on sale next week via a couple upcoming conventions in Tokyo: COMIC1 on the 30th and SUPER COMIC CITY 21 on May 4th. Later on it will also be available at Comiket 82. The A5 sized compilation will run for ¥1,200. With any luck, it will also see reprinting at major doujin retailers. Otherwise it might become a bit of a rare item.

A tiny bit more of the compilation can be seen on this Pixiv entry, teasing a 16 page comic about Zero fighting Copy X. All in all, what a great way to celebrate Zero's 10th!

Amazing Robot Master Collage is Amazing

I've seen a number of robot master collages over time, but this one is truly impressive (not to mention up to date). This is by Kinniku, who's work depicted various characters from other Mega Man games in Mega Man Powered Up style have received a bit of attention. This piece was drawn to promote the E Can Festa, a convention where 20 different doujin circles will be selling off their classic series themed merchandise. The event will take place on February 12th, 2011 in the 4th floor of the Tokyo Bungu Kyowa Kaikan in Taito-Ku, Tokyo. But really I just wanted an excuse to show off this awesome artwork.

Tell me you wouldn't love to play this Mega Man game.

Thanks, Auto!
