NES Cover Art Awesomeness: Mega Man


This one is tough to explain.  For one, it looks nothing like the Blue Bomber.  That’s just the most obvious part.  Upon further inspection, the drawing is completely crazy.  What are those buildings doing in the background?  Is that a spider-web?  How did things catch fire?  What’s with the gun?

Legend has it that the artist was given a week to do the drawing, with only a vague description of what a “Mega Man” even was.
