‘Mega Man’ #36 Explains Dr. Wily’s Wild Video Game Comeback [Preview]

Mega Man #36, Archie Comics

If you are of a certain age, you may recall the feeling of being really excited for Mega Man 3, while also being very, very confused about the game's plot. Not the thing with the eight killer robots and their weapons that you needed to get, we were all used to that by that point, but definitely the thing about how Dr. Wily had "reformed" and everyone was just totally cool with him building a gigantic "peacekeeping" robot with lasers and ninja stars. I mean, if you try to destroy the world twice and somehow still regain the trust of the people, that must have been a heck of a trial to prove your innocence.

And now, we get to see exactly how that goes down. In Mega Man #36, Ian Flynn, POWREE, Gary Martin, John Workman and Matt Herms finally reveal the story of how Dr. Wily was cleared of all charges, including two counts of Attempted Murder Of Literally Everyone. Check out a preview below!

Mike Maihack’s ‘Cleopatra In Space’ Is The All Ages Sci-Fi Heroine We’ve Been Waiting For [Preview]

Cleopatra In Space By Mike Maihack

You're reading this on the Internet, so there's a good chance that you're already familiar with Mike Maihack, whose super cute, super fun Supergirl/Batgirl fan comics pretty much take over whenever he draws a new one. I've been a fan of those for a long time, and ever since I saw the first one, I've been wondering whether he was going to turn his attention to a full-length story with a similar aesthetic, and with Cleopatra In Space, it looks like that's exactly what he's done.

The full-color OGN is set for release on April 29 from Scholastic, sending the teen Queen of Egypt out into the depths of space for a rollicking all-ages adventure. I can't wait to read it, and fortunately, I don't have to -- check below for a preview of the first 13 pages!

Everybody Goes Pog Wild In ‘Regular Show’ #12 [Preview]

Regular Show 12 Preview
Boom! Studios

If you're like most of us at ComicsAlliance, there's a good chance that you remember that fleeting year or so in the mid '90s when comic shops were overflowing with the heavily-decorated circular disks known as pogs, plus all of their prevalent slammer, mat and "pogtainer" accessories. Well, get stoked on a kind of resurgence next week as Regular Show #12 fills both physical and digital retailers with the flip-em-to-win-em items once again... only not quite the way you think. See how KC Green and artist Alison Strejlau have teamed to exploit your pogstalgia -- and, in many ways, warn a generation that hasn't experienced them of the wickendess of pogs -- with our first-look preview.

cover

Townsville’s Heroes Rally Against King Steve In ‘Powerpuff Girls’ #8 [Preview]

Powerpuff Girls #8 by Derek Charm

The City of Townsville, as you'll know if you read last month's The Powerpuff Girls #7, by CA favorite Derek Charm, is quite possibly facing its darkest moment ever. Well, except for that time Princess Morbucks made all crime legal. And when the villains formed an evil super-group called the Beat-Alls. And, you know, that time that they went into the future where Him took over and destroyed the town and killed everyone, that was probably the worst.

Look: It's pretty dark is what I'm saying. But as a massive monster invasion led by the new King of Monster Island devastates the town and the Girls been driven to give up on defending their home, it's important to remember that it's always darkest before the dawn! Maybe, just maybe, they can rally in next week's The Powerpuff Girls #8, and if you can't wait to see how, good news: We've got a preview that you can check out right below!

Rigby, Mordecai, Benson and Skips Descend Into The Cave Of The Destruction Lord In ‘Regular Show: Skips’ #6 [Preview]

Regular Show: Skips #6, kaboom

Listen, I've never had a job that required being outside. This is my blessing. The closest I've come to that is dragging long boxes out to a van at 8 a.m. so that we can get on the road to convention, and even then, I mostly just stayed inside and pretended to pick things up while secretly playing Ace Attorney games where no one could see me. I was just in it for the breakfast, folks.

What I'm getting at is that I don't understand why anyone would actually want to work in a park, let alone why they would keep working in a park even as things around them obtain lethal levels of magical realism. At some point you just gotta quit, right? But that, I suppose, is why I am not one of the stars of Regular Show, because those dudes are always ready to delve down into a cave to face off against the Destruction Lord -- which is exactly what happens in next week's Regular Show: Skips #6, the spin-off series by Mad Rupert focusing on the Park's immortal yeti groundskeeper. Check out a preview below!

‘Captain Marvel’ Artist Filipe Andrade Returns with ‘Figment’ for Disney Kingdoms Line

Untitled-1

The winner of the 2013 ComicsAlliance prize for Raddest Superhero Art, Filipe Andrade draws some of the coolest pictures we've seen in recent years. His drawing style is an uncanny blend of wild, kinetic line work and fine, intricate detail, which made his stint on Captain Marvel one of Marvel Comics' best looking productions last year. We'd been wondering where Andrade would pop up next and got our answers when Marvel released its solicitations for books going on sale in June. The artist's next big gig is Figment, written by Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Samurai Jack) and inspired by the Journey Into Imagination attraction at the EPCOT theme park at Disneyworld, starring a steampunky inventor called Dreamfinder and his dragon Figment.
