The Bronze Age stalwart turns 65 — and we’ve got an EXCLUSIVE INSIDE LOOK at IDW’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition for you…
I don’t think a 12-year-old in 1979 had any right to expect that a comic based on the Mego toyline Micronauts would become a beloved Marvel classic. I should know: I was one.
But Bill Mantlo and Michael Golden’s The Micronauts was something special, far transcending its source material both in terms of scope and longevity. (The original comic lasted four years longer than the toy line.)
Over the decades, The Micronauts has become a stout cult-fave and IDW’s Scott Dunbier has compiled another superb mega-volume with the forthcoming Michael Golden’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition.
The oversize hardcover replicates Golden’s original art in its full size. The 184-pager is due Oct. 14 and will feature six complete issues — Micronauts #3, #7, #8, #9, #11 and #12. There will also be a hefty gallery section, including story pages (something from each issue drawn by Golden), covers, pin-ups and more. The list price is $150.
As it happens, Golden — born Oct. 1, 1955 — is turning 65. Perfect time for this EXCLUSIVE INSIDE LOOK at 13 PAGES from the edition.
So let’s jump into inner space!
