With Sunday comes a new sketch card, hopefully you’ve been deciding on what you want me to do for next week because come Wednesday speak now or forever hold your peace. Now for those just joining us, last week I asked my faithful audience to leave a comment or contact me for the “season finale” so to speak. I would look at all the suggestions for the final card and then draw it for next week’s post. If you want to get in on it, make haste I’m closing polls come this Wednesday.
Now for today’s card I’ve decided to go into the world of games and draw the Blue Bomber himself, Mega Man! (or Rockman for the Japanese fans)
Rockman is a platforming game series similar to the Mario games in which the title character, Rockman (or Mega Man) has to defeat 8 evil robots and then fight their creator Dr. Wily. Rockman is in essence the video game version of Astro Boy as both have VERY similar origins. Rockman was one of the flagship games for Capcom during the late 80s and 1990s, as well as the Street Fighter series. Mega Man, er Rockman was so popular that he even got an American animated series. About a year or so ago, Archie Comics acquired the license of the character and began printing comics based on the games, taking deviations here and there depending on the plot and what not.
I grew up playing many of the Mega Man games and have a very strong hatred of the Metal Man stage in part 2. Given Rock’s announcement in Super Smash Bros. 4 it’ll be interesting to see how he plays.
Well I hope you enjoyed the card, don’t forget to submit your ideas on what you would like me to draw for next week as it will be the final card for this run.
‘Til Next Time
