A ComicBook series based on the Classic ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series, produced by Franchise/ArchieComics and written by Ian Flynn, current writer of ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''. Unlike the Sonic adaptation, this one largely sticks to the source material when adapting the series, including elements from the obscure GameBoy titles and NoExportForYou titles like ''VideoGame/SuperAdventureRockman'' and ''The Wily Wars''. The first issue was released in May 2011.

In a similar vein to Sonic's ''Off Panel'', this series features ''Short Circuits'' in the back, which is a short, comic strip style gag based on the events on the issue.

With issue #55, Archie [[http://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8301 put the series on hiatus.]] It's unknown if the book will return, get rebooted, or is canceled. With the cancellation of ''Sonic the Hedgehog'', it appears unlikely that ''Mega Man'' will resume.

* IdenticalPanelGag: Played for drama. A flashback that ends with a younger Dr. Light telling Wily that he has faith that Dr. Wily can still achieve greatness in the robotics world, given a second chance. Cut to present day, and Dr. Light is depressed the Wily rejected his second, and third, chances.

* MergingTheBranches: Issue 55's preview of ZX provides a rather clear indication that Flynn had plans to include all four protagonists in the same timeline, instead of the split-timeline approach the actual games took.

** While explaining his time-machine scheme in issue 20, Wily mentions that it's [[LampshadeHanging "almost like I've done it before"]] - which he did, in the "Future Shock" episode of the cartoon. This could also have been an in-universe CallBack[=/=]in-comic CallForward to the [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide Worlds Collide]] CrossOver where Dr. Wily also manipulates the fabric of space-time with the help of [[VillainousFriendship Dr. Eggman]].
** The ''Short Circuits'' in issue 20 has Police Man, a dead ringer for Fake Man from VideoGame/MegaMan9 (save for the lack of a blaster).

* TruerToTheText: This series, which actually tries to adaot the games it's based on, is significantly more faithful than [[ComicBook/DreamwavesMegaMan the last Western-made comic book adaptation]], which was pretty much an adaptation InNameOnly.
