It’s a quick list this week with smurfs, girl spies, and aspiring astronauts. Papercutz continues its Smurfs title with the little blue friends facing a Howlibird, and over at Archie, Betty and Veronica are agents trying to protect Riverdale from a kid’s TV show? And don’t forget to get the next volume of Twin Spica as Asumi and her friends continue their journey to becoming astronauts.

Megaman1 196x300 All ages comics and manga for 5/11/11Mega Man #1 – The creators of the long-running Sonic the Hedgehog comic take on another video game franchise with this new series from Archie Comics. Dr. Light, a brilliant and benevolent scientist, unveils his latest creations, the Robot Masters. But the nefarious Dr. Wily steals them to use for his own sinister purposes. With no one left to stop him, Rock, a young boy with a peaceful heart must step up to become Mega Man to battle the maniacal Dr. Wily. This comic will follow the original Mega Man video game story-line, and will be told from Rock’s perspective. Considering how well Sonic the Hedgehog has done with creators Ian Flynn and Patrick Spaziante’s at the helm, I would expect Mega Man to just as good. Elementary and Middle school library and parents should definitely check this title out, especially if the kids like video games.
