Smart writing, action, and characters...it all falls into place really nicely here.

These stories have action, morals, bonds and drama which all fit perfectly in a such a series that holds so much to reality and the imagination.
Fate
This is the story I was waiting for in volumes 1 and 2 and I can see the potential for the series more clearly than ever.

Format: Paperback
I haven't read Mega Man 4 or 5, so I don't know if those are better. Currently, I love this read. Here's five reasons why

1. Robot Masters 2.0
The old robot masters were weak and easy. These robots are strong and dangerous. The robot masters are:
Quick Man: Has superspeed and a powerful boomerang
Wood Man: Has a leaf shield
Bubble Man: Can shoot sulfuric acid bubbles
Heat Man: Can shoot blasts of extreme heat
Crash Man: Has Drills for hands and can shoot explosives
Air Man: Has the ability to create vortexes and air blasts
Metal Man: Can throw deadly blades
Flash Man: Can stop time

2. Action galore
This book contains intense, hardcore action that will pull you in hook, line, and sinker.

3. Shock ending
The ending is unexpected. You never see it coming. All I can say is: Mega Man should have taken his time beating Quick Man.

4. Here comes the light brigade!
A part of the ending features the return of the classic robot masters from the first and second novels. They fought hard and seeing their invasion is a treat

5. MEGA MAN"S IN IT!
The fact that it's a mega man novel is enough to get me reading it.

A very good novel worth the $11.99

The story is very intriguing and gears towards its own universe slowly while retaining its "core" elements. These stories have action, morals, bonds and drama which all fit perfectly in a such a series that holds so much to reality and the imagination.

Once again we find ourselves visiting the world of our favorite robot hero (no, not Astro Boy) Mega Man!

This volume finds us with Mega Man's greatest challenge yet and I couldn't be happier about that. This is the story I was waiting for in volumes 1 and 2 and I can see the potential for the series more clearly than ever.

The story is a take on the plot for Mega Man 2 adding a nice twist in the end (which I won't spoil here). Basically Wily creates new robot masters himself who unlike the previous set are made only to destroy our hero. Quick Man is given a prominent role in this arc becoming akin to the Joker to Mega Man's Batman with baiting and toying with the Blue Bomber whenever he can. Mega Man gets really trashed in this arc and it puts any fears of a lack of serious threat to rest.

This leads me to Ian Flynn's writing. It is top notch. Mega Man's personality is being addressed well in the series overall and this is no exception. We get to see Mega Man's emotions as he tries to adjust to this new role thrust on him (from a reluctant hero, to a power mad jerk hero, to a lone wolf) and each step makes sense. This volume is easily the darkest of the 3 so far and the fact you can tell Mega Man's emotion as they change throughout. Yes, it's not as nuanced as some of the greater comic works out there but for a all-age book this is good. An especial dark scene (for this series) takes place at one point near the end of the 3rd act that actually made me take a step back. If you're that attached to a character and his personality that a sudden change does that then the writers doing a good job. This is balanced by the final act with Mega Man's buddies entering the scene and adding much needed humor to the story. Did I mention I love in-fight banter?

Format: Paperback
This volume follows the events of Mega Man 2, even paying homage to the levels of the game itaelf, nicely illustrated with the artwork of Spaz. This book also adds more and fleshes out the basic storyline of the game, such as adding a virus that Wily has made. If you've been keeping up with this series, this book most certainly will not disappoint.

My kids and I have enjoyed taking turns reading the Mega Man comic collections. They seem to improve with each release. It would be nice to see a bit deeper plot and less predictability. The 4th book definitely moves the series more in this direction.

This comic about your favorite little robotic Blue Knight in shinning armor is very fun to read.
This adaptation of the classic series is very good.
