Rock’s Top Secret Photos Revealed!
Paparazzi, photophiles, and other proponents of peeking at people’s private photographs, rejoice! The Rockman Daizukan has published pictures pertaining to our plucky robot protagonist’s personal portfolio! What intimate secrets does it hold?
Toru Nakayama’s Women of Rockman
Like the Heroes calendar, Capcom’s 2012 Girls Calendar featured its own Rockman panorama, this one by famed Rockman Zero series artist Toru Nakayama. Taking up the highly contended for New Years/Valentine’s Day position, no less! Not quite as comprehensive as the boys’ side.

25 Days of Rockman
In honor of Rockman’s 25th birthday, I’m attempting something I’ve never managed to do in the past: 25 posts. IN A ROW. One for each year of Rockman’s existence. I’ll be putting up some very old and very rare stuff I’ve been saving for a special occasion. And this time, nothing’s gonna stop me… Unless […]
