A team of tech scavengers rescues a disassembled Machine Man from the scrap heap, introducing him to the year 2020. A surprisingly strong start to this Machine Man revamp brings Conan great Barry Windsor-Smith back to comics.

Micronauts #3

In Marvel, Reviews by T. Andrew WahlLeave a Comment

Still fleeing Prince Shaitan’s forces, the Micronauts find themselves engaged in a very public battle in Daytona Beach. There’s not much in the way of character building here, but the action – from the regular creative team of Bill Mantlo and Michael Golden – is excellent.

Fleeing through a breech in the Spacewall, the renegade Micronauts find themselves facing greater peril … on Earth! Writer Bill Mantlo delivers a stronger story for this second outing, and continues to get great art support from the team of Michael Golden and Josef Rubinstein.

Micronauts #1

Arcturus Rann returns from a millennium of exploration to find the Microverse under siege by the evil Baron Karza. Writer Bill Mantlo’s story is both derivative and a lot to take in, but exceptional art from the team of Michael Golden and Josef Rubinstein make this debut issue a winner.

Rom encounters his first superhero since coming to Earth; unfortunately, Jack of Hearts thinks the spaceknight is a killer! A generally solid issue from Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema gets bogged by back story and exposition.

Rom lies captive within Project Safeguard, a national alien research facility secretly under the control of Dire Wraith! Another above-average story from writer Bill Mantlo, though the art from Sal Buscema isn’t as strong.
