PREVIEW: Mega Man #21

MegaMan_21-0I always wondered if video games celebrated the holidays. You know what I mean?  Like do Mario and Luigi take a break from saving the Princess to have a BBQ on Fourth of July? Is everyone in Castlevania HUGE fans of Halloween or are they over it? Thanks to the fine folks at Archie Comics, we can finally get the answer about on video game and one holiday.

Mega Man #21 is a New Year’s Day celebration! I’ll be honest, I didn’t see that one coming. ┬áCheck out the description and a preview of what’s to come below and also see what the great letterer, John Workman has been up to..


“Countdown”: It’s almost New Year’s Day, and Mega Man is ready to celebrate in style! Rock, Roll and Dr. Light are amongst the crowd waiting to watch the ceremonial light-ball drop at midnight, but the celebration is short-lived as the Emerald Spears return to exact their revenge on our heroes! The epic grudge match between Mega Man and Xander Payne begins now, so grab a front row seat and prepare for the battle royale!
