The Original Blue Bomber is Back in Mega Man™ MegamixDec 2nd 2009
UDON brings classic Megaman™ Manga to English readers
Toronto, ON – Dec 1, 2009 – Of all the characters in CAPCOM®'s vast videogame library, arguably none is more recognizable worldwide than Megaman™. With more than 100 video games to his name, Megaman is among the most iconic figures of gaming, but despite this, the original blue bomber's Japanese manga adventures have never been available to English readers. UDON has decided to rectify that, with the release of Megaman™ Megamix Vol. 1 in January 2010.
Written and drawn by mangaka Hitoshi Ariga, the Megamix manga is a 3-volume series beloved for its stupendous artwork and exciting stories. Outside of Japan, Megaman fans have dreamed of one day being able to enjoy these adventures… and now they finally can!
The series features appearances by all the franchise regulars like Proto Man, Dr. Wily, Dr. Light, Bass & Treble, Rush, Roll, and tons of villainous Robot Masters! UDON has gone directly to Megamix creator Hitoshi Ariga to obtain the original artwork files for the series, and ensure the best localization possible. Each volume of Megamix is also packed with character profiles, sketches, gag strips, and creator interviews. This is a series no Megaman fan would dare miss out on!
