By way of Destructoid, we now can take a look at the covers and solicitation for the upcoming #32 issue of Mega Man, which will conclude the "Blackout: The Curse of Ra Moon" story arch. With the chips down for humanity, Mega Man and Dr. Wily fight side by side to confront the terror of Ra Moon. If you've looked into Super Adventure Rockman you may know how this goes, but who knows what twists or details Archie might toss in? Here is the full synopsis:


"Curse of Ra Moon" Part Four: The startling, jaw-dropping conclusion to this MEGA-EPIC story is here! The tables have turned as the evil Dr. Wily and his sixteen Robot Masters stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Mega Man! But the ominous alien known as RA MOON still threatens the lives of both the heroes AND the villains! Who will survive and what will become of them? Can their combined power overcome Ra Moon? One thing is certain—there's no way our hero will be walking away from this one unscathed! Featuring an all-new cover art from Mega-art-guru Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante and an awesome new "payback" variant cover from artist POWREE (Sandra and Woo)!

Covers and Solicitation for Mega Man #29

It appears that even after facing a crisis that bends universes and reality, the Blue Bomber still isn't getting a respite. I guess that's the lot of all heroes. Following straight after the end of the Worlds Collide story arch, Mega Man will immediately have to deal with the alien threat Ra Moon, who has been bolstering support for Dr. Wily (it would seem). It's pretty fascinating how much influence the odd bird side game Super Adventure Rockman has had in this comic. This issue comes with a variant cover by Dean Haspial (pictured right). The solicitation reads:

The biggest storyline in Mega Man comic history starts here! "BLACKOUT: Curse of Ra Moon" Part One: The world has shut down!  When the power of Ra Moon robs the Earth of all its technology, it’s up to Mega Man and a handful of Robot Masters to set things right. But just how can robots handle the force of a technological meltdown if they’re cut off from the ability to re-charge? Has Mega Man fallen right into Dr. Wily’s trap?  Or has Wily underestimated his mysterious new ally? Featuring all-new cover art from Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, and variant cover by comics-superstar Dean Haspiel!
