I was foraging the wastes trying to find some PPE and I found this comic in a disconcertingly damp box in the woods. Let's crack it open and take a look around shall we?


First impressions are critical folks, and if your first impression that the art is bad then buckle-up buttercup. poo poo's going to get weird. But that is our good buddy Megaman and this does have 3 free mini posters of Megaman and his pals included. Did Capcom put out a manga styled comic series based on the games that folks just forgot abou-


Oh huh.



So folks what we have here is what happens when you license out your video game property to a group of folks that haven't played the games or know anything about them sight unseen. This here collection of images is an English translation of an Officially Licensed Megaman comic put out by a rotating cast of what can charitably be called morons in Brazil in the late 90s. This will not be a good comic by almost any metric. It will be entertaining for the sheer spectacle of this rolling train wreck and retroactive amazement that some series of people said it was ok to go about this. I grabbed the entire collection of some fan's FTP server after coming across a fan site detailing the disaster in the late aughts if memory serves. I do want to be clear about something, this is what amounts to a 90s Indie comic. It's going to have some content and themes that may not gel with some folks; just wanted to get that out there. I'll just be doing the first chapter tonight, but we can work through the series if there is interest. Anyway, back to our Ruby-Spears episode comic.












So those of you misfortunate enough to care about the Megaman series lore may have some questions right about now. I'd advise you jot them down on a piece of paper and then toss it in the garbage.

From what I can recall one of the pages of Portuguese in a later issue addresses this and plays it off as a "coloring accident". Clearly this was deemed too subtle by the editorial staff as later issues of this are just going to go for the drat thing.

I think he says that he took the Megaman because it's famous but did whatever he wanted because the game and the TV series suck. He wants to get input from the readers and incorporate it in the story line, but only if it has nothing to do with the game or the TV series because they suck.

Here's the insane manifesto written in the first edition:

---------------------------

If there's something hard to do in this country, it is to be a comic book artist.

The local publishers sit on their lazy asses and only care to bring American comics. Unaware of what the readers want, they give money to the gringos and kill the dreams of millions of Brazilian artists who, without a place to publish, go wherever their hunger sends them: After money and food.

But every now and then we get a comic book of our own.

And so is this. This comic book was made for the purpose of riding on the success of the MEGAMAN animated series, of course!

The merits of this comic book can be seen from its very stylistic choices: This is the first 100% Brazilian manga that isn't copying Japanese stories; It's the first manga ever made by a woman; It's my first official job as a writer; it's the first to use computer-assisted coloring.

The plot goes like this: I took a look at the animated series and completely ignored the story, because it's so bad! So, this comic has NOTHING TO DO with the tv show, written with the sole purpose of selling toys. And neither does this comic resemble the "plots" of the games, because a videogame cartridge can never tell a proper story: It just strings you along, so you can move that mouse pointer across the screen and get an RSI (???). I'd rather be different and (some insanely old idiom (I don't even know the literal meaning of this (Googling))) be annoying on purpose!

Who am I? I'm not one of those people who writecomic books just to make a few bucks and then be quickly forgotten. I plan to follow an entire plot arc. And I'm not writing this for my friends, nor do I suck Kamen Rider (??????????????). That would be a gross incompetence from my part...

The team and I are doing the best possible job we can. The story is good, within what is reasonable to expect from a comic book, the artwork is also cool and I even ask for your help with the screenwriting! When was the last time a Brazilian writer asked you what it is you want to read?

So in order to write this comic I'm counting on you. Send your critiques, give me your opinion, but do be careful with what you're asking! I'm not gonna accept adaptations from the TV show or alternative timelines from the cartridge "plots". Be creative!

This comic is yours, the writing is yours, not mine. My team and I are just doing our job. Do yours: Buy the magazine, tell your friends to do the same and send us your suggestions.

We need your support. Let's see what's gonna happen.

I made a Mega Man comic when I was a kid.

It was little more than an unconnected series of strips featuring the most juvenile poop jokes and toilet humor that only my sheltered child rear end thought was funny. There was no overarching story. So maybe calling it a “comic” is a bit generous. Each strip was only like 1 or 2 pages long and the “art” was terrible since I couldn’t draw for poo poo (and I still can’t). Most of those strips ended with at least one of the robots vomiting. Yes, that’s right, robots can puke. Because I was eight, you see!

I’m not entirely sure what happened to them, but I’m pretty sure they’ve all been destroyed by the sands of time. Which in a way is kinda sad cuz they might’ve made for some funny posts.

So if you're wondering about why this thing is drawn like garbage, in the 90's there was a craze about drawing manga here. I think it's safe to say the biggest influence was Masami Kurumada (Saint Seiya) who is not exactly good at drawing faces.



Nevertheless J-stuff were absolutely huge here and 80's manga were a big influence, so there were swarms of "how to draw manga" magazines trying to teach you how to poorly emulate the 80's without teaching you the fundamentals.

"I couldn't stop saying aloud how miscast Jim Carrey was!"


I'd never seen any of this sub-slice of the franchise but I did hear about it - and that eventually Capcom pulled the license and shut down the comic when the creatives decided that Mega Man sucked and they could do better, so they killed him off and replaced him with a self-insert fanfiction character who was intended to become the permanent protagonist.

Reading that egomaniacal letter to the readers that outright poo poo-talks other parts of the franchise(!), that sounds about right.
