Micronauts #7

In Marvel, Reviews by T. Andrew Wahl0 Comments

Trying to catch their breath in the Everglades, the Micronauts instead encounter the smoldering touch of the Man-Thing! Writer Bill Mantlo ups his game a bit this issue, but the art – from Michael Golden and Josef Rubinstein – isn’t as strong as previous outings.

Morgan’s legion lays siege to the city of Thera in an effort to earn freedom – and rescue Tara from Deimos. The story is a bit rushed and the art a bit scratchy, but, overall, creator Mike Grell delivers another Warlord winner.

Separated from Tara, soon-to-be Warlord Travis Morgan is captured by slavers and forced to fight in a gladiator arena. Mike Grell’s art outshines his story here, with nice rendering and strong visual storytelling.
