HAPPY NEW YEAR! To celebrate, let's kick out that ol' Christmas tree we call a hiatus.
But the return of this comic is not all that I have to report! I have been working on a little side project which (if all goes well) I am going to start uploading right now, as this page goes up.

I AM REMAKING THE COMIC. ...Specifically, I remastered all of the Megaman 1 pages while I was bored. I just got tired of the lower standard of quality I had back then. For nostalgias sake, I will post author comments with links to what the original pages looked like, though.
Best case scenario, I'll have all of these remastered pages up today, but even though there's only 92 of them, it might not happen, because it's a busy time of the year, and our whole family happens to be sick. But I'll see what I can do.
I will probably also do this for the MM2 pages in the future, and MAYBE for the MM3 pages. Time will tell, I suppose.

AS A FINAL NOTE: I have an alternate version of this page, which I also made while I was bored (kind of happens a lot with me). This one was made after the one that was actually used, but me and Mad both thought it was inferior.

Yey we're back.

Because of aforementioned sickness, we don't have a buffer quite the size we wished it to be, but we hope to keep up anyway.

For those curious, in the end we just downloaded an emulator and a ROM. After some serious research we managed to click the second result on Google for both of them.
Here and here. For the emulator we went with VirtuaNES (note: not VirtualNES) because the name jumped out to us and the description looked good.

Other than playing online at virtualnes.com, which turns out to be very unreliable, there is just no legal way to play this game where we'd be able to take the necessary screenshots unless we would go through some complex and probably expensive capture device magic. Also, the save states are a nice bonus feature for those pesky Wily stages without passwords.

This comic kinda isn't legal anyway.

About the thing where it would be legal to download ROMs if you physically own the game, that's a misunderstanding. What this actually refers to is that you're allowed to make a back-up of the ROM of your specific copy of the game. Seems like a lame technicality to me, really, but those are the official laws. We might buy copies of the games at some point just to set the money exchange right and clear our conscience. Although it does feel weird to buy those games and probably never play them on that platform.

So yeah, let's see if we can beat the evil Wily I MEAN COSSACK.

OH DEAR WE'RE VOTING AGAIN OK HERE WE GO.OK SO ONCE AGAIN WE ARE GOING TO NEED TO HAVE AN ORDER TO PLAY NEXT GAME'S ROBOT MASTERS IN AND ONCE AGAIN IT'S UP TO YOU GUYS TO VOTE THAT ORDER INTO EXISTENCE.

OK HOW.SEND ME AND/OR DJOING A PM WITH A LIST OF THE ORDER YOU WANT US TO FIGHT THE MEGA MAN FIVE ROBOT MASTERS IN. AS AN EXAMPLE, A VOTE FOR MEGA MAN 4'S ROBOT MASTER ORDER WOULD LOOK LIKE:

1. Skull Man
2. Toad Man
3. Bright Man
4. Pharaoh Man
5. Dust Man
6. Ring Man
7. Drill Man
8. Dive Man

THEN WHAT?THEN I SHALL AWARD 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 AND 0 POINTS TO THEM IN ORDER AND ALL THE POINTS OF ALL THE VOTERS COMBINED DECIDE WHICH ORDER THE ROBOT MASTERS ARE FOUGHT IN.

STOP TYPING IN ALL-CAPSNO YOU.

ALSO, WHEN EVERYONE HAS VOTED, THE PERSON WHOSE VOTE GOT CLOSEST TO THE FINAL RESULT WILL WIN A GUEST APPEARANCE LIKE ALIENOID AND LEO_DRAGON_KNIGHT DID IN THESE LAST TWO GAMES.

HOW DO YOU EVEN DECIDE WHO IS CLOSESTBY USING A MATHEMATICAL THING CALLED CORRELATION.

DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ELSE TO WIN THIS FANTASTIC GUEST APPEARANCE PRIZE?ACTUALLY, YES.

IN THESE PAST TWO VOTING EVENTS, PERSONS HAVE REFUSED THE GUEST APPEARANCE WHEN THEY WON IT. SO, TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN, PLEASE MENTION IN YOUR PM THAT YOU DO WISH TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE GUEST APPEARANCE.

IS THAT ALL?YES.

Oh.GET VOTING!

Funny, I was wondering about this comic yesterday.

I seem to have good timing with my thoughts.

Hooray! It's back!

Now you can take care of Cossack, who I'm sure is exactly the villain of this game.

Hooray for one of my favourite comics coming back! And the remastered pages look pretty good thus far.

@CapedLuigisYoshi: But of course! Didn't you see that villainous smirk and that quirked eyebrow on his portrait? Clearly, he is the villain behind not just this game, but he was secretly behind all the other games as well!

On the topic of the renewal of the MM1 Chapter I'm tempted to fix my comments. I was such a n00b back then. Anyone in favor? I'll update the analyses too. Also: HOLY CRAP THE HIATUS IS OVER TRUMPET FANFARE
