Mega Man is the legendary Blue Bomber—the boy robot turned hero! One of videogame’s first icons, he’s now one of comic books’ greatest heroes!

It all began when the nefarious Dr. Wily stole Dr. Light’s eight Robot Masters and turned them against the world! Helper-bot Rock had himself turned into Mega Man—the super fighting robot—to save the day!

Dr. Wily wouldn’t go down without a fight, though, and built eight combat-specific Robot Masters just to destroy Mega Man—from without or within! No prison could hold him, and no scheme was beneath him—as evident when he kidnapped Mega Man’s sister, Roll!

MEGA MAN: MASTER EDITION collects the first three epic storylines, covering MEGA MAN #1-12.

Publication History: Trade Paperback Original

IAN FLYNN has been the chief writer for Archie’s popular and record-setting SONIC THE HEDGEHOG comic for more than five years, including the headline-grabbing SONIC: GENESIS storyline and graphic novel. He is the main writer of its sister title SONIC UNIVERSE and accompanying graphic novels since the title’s inception, and is also the writer of Archie’s MEGA MAN series, another critical and popular hit. Flynn also helmed the historic meetings of Sonic and Mega Man in the hugely popular SONIC/MEGA MAN: WORLDS COLLIDE and WORLDS UNITE storylines, and wrote the critically-acclaimed NEW CRUSADERS series, Archie’s return to the superhero genre.
