Boom! Studios has announced that it has partnered up with WildBrain Ltd. and Dentsu Entertainment USA for a brand new six episode comic book series based upon the animated television show Mega Man: Fully Charged from TV writers A.J. Marchisello and Marcus Rinehart, along with artist Stefano Simeone (Read Only Memories) and acclaimed comics/TV/film creators Man of Action Entertainment.
“Having worked on the Mega Man: Fully Charged television series, we’re honored to help usher this story from screen to page. Man of Action’s unique take is a Mega-fan’s dream, and thanks to BOOM! Studios, that dream has come true,” said Marchisello and Rinehart.
“I can’t believe I’m working on something that I grew up with and enjoyed so much when I was a kid,” added Simeone. “I’m very happy to be working on a new Mega Man comic book, and I can’t wait to share my enthusiasm and excitement on the pages of this series with readers and fans everywhere!”
“We are excited to see the expansion of the Mega Man: Fully Charged television series into comics, a medium we love so dearly. AJ and Marcus have been with the show from the beginning, and along with Stefano are delivering a fantastic, slick looking and modern Mega Man tale,” stated Man of Action Entertainment
Based on the television series of the same name, MEGA MAN: FULLY CHARGED features heroes like Mega Man, Rush, and Dr. Light in fully charged adventures battling the wickedest of Robot Masters led by Dr. Wily.
After Mega Man’s father Dr. Light is kidnapped, a shocking truth rocks Mega Man’s world as it seems the Robot Masters know more about his secret history than he does. But as Dr. Wily’s machinations trigger Mega Man’s forgotten memories of the brutal human/robot war, our hero is left to question just who he is and if he can trust anything or anyone – including the man he calls father.
Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 will go on sale in August 2020.
