Volt Man shows up in Ariga’s Rockman Gigamix Vol. 2

You have no idea how excited I was when I purchased the newest Gigamix volume and saw that Ariga picked one of the designs I sent in. Volt Man is clearly shown riding along side a gaggle of other entrants’ robots. A few months back, Hitoshi Ariga held an opportunity for artists to submit their robot designs to use in a portion of the new Gigamix storyline, and I feel like a lucky Gaijin right now as I was one of the many entrants that were lucky enough to have their creations featured in the book (even if its only for a one shot deal.) The original design and image I sent in is on the lower right of the image above.

Ariga is one of my all time favorite artists from Japan and certainly an icon I look up to for his Rockman books, so you can tell how giddy and excited I was to spot this.

When taking off the cover slip, I noticed that the inside also held some extra secrets. Here you can see he printed my submission for RadioMan.

    Excellent. It’s an exciting feeling!

    I think Volt Man is one of the best electric-super designs I’ve seen. (Certainly better than daisy-head Electro!)

    It’s good to see a well-grounded character design like that one.
