(UPDATED) Break Man hits the scene in Mega Man #23!
UPDATE 11/25/12: First Comic News has posted Archie’s February 2013 solicitations. Now we know that Ryan Jampole will be returning to handle the interiors for the fifth time. I don’t know about you… but one issue in, and I’m already loving this Jampole-a-thon!
UPDATE 11/20/12: Unleash the Fanboy has a better look at the cover here. While we’re still waiting to see who’s handling the interiors, the higher-res image reveals that, in addition to Matt Herms on colors, Rick Bryant handled the cover’s inks while Jamal Peppers did the pencils.

‘For the Bot Who Has Everything.’ Happy Birthday, Mega Man! The city celebrates their hero in style and Rock receives the recognition he deserves! What could ruin such a perfect day? How about a vengeful Dr. Wily and the mysterious Break Man?! Don’t miss this issue on the eve of the Sonic/Mega Man crossover!”
No word yet on who’s handling the interiors, but I’ll update with that information as soon as Archie posts their solicitations in the coming weeks.
(Fun-Fact: This totally epic cover was originally conceptualized by Patrick Spaziante to be used for issue #8. I personally always hated that the idea got scrapped, so I’m glad to see it reworked for this issue! Check out the original concept version here!)
