Yet another round of bad news for Archie comic fans.
Usually this site doesn’t cover Mega Man outside of the crossover shenanigans, but this piece of news is pretty urgent for anyone who follows the blue bomber. Earlier today, comicbook.com released the solicit for September’s issue of Mega Man, Mega Man #53. On top of that, they stated that this arc would Archie would be ending the series in November’s Mega Man #55. Below is the solicit for September’s issue;
MEGA MAN #53
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!

Either way, this isn’t exactly great for those who follow the Mega Man comic. At least there’s still a continuation on the cards, so watch this space to see if Mega Man returns to take on more of Dr Wily’s nefarious plans.
