When I was growing up, Capcom's Mega Man titles were my favorite video games. There was a time in my life where I had fifty Robot Masters and their weaknesses committed to memory in case I ever found myself separated from the stack of Nintendo Power magazines I'd set aside for reference, and I have lasting friendships to this day I made in elementary school based on the fact that I heard someone had Mega Man 2 so I could go over to his house and play it. So when Archie Comics kicked off their new Mega Man comic

Like everyone else, we here at ComicsAlliance have been marveling at the absolute torrent of insanity that's been pouring out of Charlie Sheen over the past week. Today, however, Sheen's madness finally extended to somewhere that we never expected: Riverdale,

Did you know that Archie described the sensation as tingling? Neither did we, but we do now thanks to the prodigious efforts of Copacetic Comics' Bill Boichel, who unearthed an ancient issue of Archie that has some compelling simila

This week, Archie Comics releases the first issue of "Life With Archie: The Married Life," a new magazine-sized series that follows up on last year's popular story arcs depicting a pair of alternate futures in which Riverdale's favorite son got married to Betty in one and Veronica in the other.

When I was talking about the upcoming "Thor" game last week, I got around the lack of screenshots by whipping up my idealized 8-bit game for the God of Thunder. And that got me thinking: What if they had converted my other favorite comics into 8-bit NES games -- or, in the case of Batman and the X-Men, what if the games they were in were actually good?
