If you like Mega Man and if you also like comics/graphic novels, then chances are you know about the Archie publications on the franchise. The graphic novel releases combine multiple comics into one juicy bundle, with the story-lines covering enough lore and background to the many games to satisfy the most ardent of Blue Bomber fans.

The latest graphic novel bundle, Mega Man Vol. 5: Rock of Ages, collects issues 17-20 in the series, with a sneak peak at adaptations yet to happen, such as the Game Boy iteration of Mega Man 5 and the most recent WiiWare release, Mega Man 10. This fifth volume is actually released in North America on 22nd May, so you'll have to move fast to get a pre-order bonus price of $8.99 from the Archie Comics store; it'll go up to $11.99 tomorrow. For those outside of North America, it's worth noting that the Archie's site has some rather meaty shipping prices, but the novels are available from various regional Amazon sites; it doesn't arrive in the UK until early June.

If you're a collector of these novels, or want to persuade the rest of us to join in, sound off in the comments below.

I already own the original issues. Its a fun and light read. Not a fan of the art though.I wish Spaziante had time to do more interiors for the series.
