The Blue Bomber’s battles rage on!

UDON Entertainment is bringing the original Mega Man back to comic book stores with MEGA MAN MASTERMIX: a quarterly, 80-page comic series presenting Hitoshi Ariga’s classic Mega Man stories, now in color for the first time! (Volumes of Ariga’s Mega Man manga have been previously collected by UDON in black & white as MEGA MAN MEGAMIX & MEGA MAN GIGAMIX.) The series will launch in January 2018, and features colors by Josh Perez. First issue synopsis from UDON:

The Birth of Mega Man! In a world where humans and robots live and work together, six powerful robots have suddenly turned against their programming and set their sights on causing chaos and destruction! Only one heroic robot stands in their path – Mega Man, the greatest creation of Dr. Light!

MEGA MAN MASTERMIX #1 will ship with two standard covers: cover A by Hitoshi Ariga, and cover B by Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz. A Blank Sketch cover (cover C) will also be available, and Rob “Robaato” Porter’s Retailer Incentive cover (cover D) homages a classic comic cover from the 1980s. Two exclusive covers will also be produced for the issue. The first is for Fried Pie Comics, and features Mega Man battling the enormous Yellow Devil robot (illustrated by Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz); the second is UDON’s own online exclusive cover, showcasing four classic Mega girls — Kalinka, Plum, Splash Woman, and Roll — illustrated by Aki Li. This cover is available exclusively through Focus Attack.
