THAT won't be good for Rock's psyche.

Are we going to seen Rock's origins or something? Since I found out about the Blue's origin I've been wondering if we where going to see that? I also wonder if Light built Rock first and Roll later or both at the same time. I'd imagine that the idea behind having two robots is the same reason people get two cats or dogs.

That sounds... a bit weird. He doesn't have much life to go through backwards, but going forwards seems like jumping the gun... is this some sort of tie-in to XOver?

I'd like for this to deal with Dr. Light's past or Rock's future.

But this sounds like it might be the way the comic will attempt to bring in the unintroduced stuff from the Mega Man series such as Bass in time for the Sonic/Mega Man crossover.

So will the next book be only two issues for the Proto-Type arc? What arc is 19 and 20 in?

I wonder if this will be part of the Sonic / MegaMan crossover, or maybe something else?

Um there's two issues of Proto-Type and two One Shots I think it's a safe bet they're all going to be in the same Trade.

Three hypotheses:

1- The beginning of Quint art.
2- The beginning of the Sonic crossover.
3- In a very odd move, the beginning of a Rockman Xover arc.

Sounds more like Wily Wars but it could start in the past and move to the future, I think any Xover stiff we see might after the Sonic Crossover. I'm not sure Ian even knew about Xover game until now and it's probabley to late to write a story and rearrange schedule. Plus it would be disspointing to show all those Megamen and just befor a crossover with Sonic. Afterwords wouldn't be so bad.

I predict a Megas-esque lamentation on how the fight will never end.
