Aside from the first few introductory comics, this and the previous comic are really the first time Mega Man "breaks the fourth wall".

For those of you unfamiliar with that term, it derives from the idea that in a play, the audience can typically see the three walls of a building on stage. It's assumed that there is then a fourth wall between the actors and the audience that the audience can see through in order to watch the events unfolding on stage. Therefore, when a character in a play or television show directly addresses the audience, they're destroying the illusion of that imaginary fourth wall, hence "breaking the fourth wall".

Anyway, in my comic the fourth wall is broken so much, it might as well not even be there.

One interesting thing to note about this period in the comic is that I apparently still had some spriting tricks left to learn. You might notice that Mega Man's mouth in this comic is quite different from what you might see in later comics. It hadn't yet occurred to me that I could cut and paste parts of sprites onto other sprites, such as the mouth from one sprite onto the head of another. But given that the comic was less than a month old, and sprite comics in general were still in their infancy, I suppose my lack of experience can be forgiven.
