Micronauts: Original Marvel Years Omnibus Volume One

    I can’t wait to get my hands on “The Micronauts” comic book collection; it’s a series that holds a special place in my heart from my childhood. It’s incredibly exciting to see it finally being collected into an Omnibus edition. This compilation transports us back into the fascinating world of the Microverse, a place we thought we’d never get to experience in such a comprehensive format!

    “The Micronauts,” under the masterful pen of writer Bill Mantlo, masterfully brings together the subatomic heroes of Homeworld and the Marvel Universe. The synergy of Mantlo’s intricate character development and the groundbreaking artwork by Michael Golden truly turned this series into an instant classic. It’s a remarkable journey as we follow Commander Rann, Princess Mari, Biotron, Acroyear, and Bug, all aboard their “microchip”, the Endeavor. Their mission is nothing short of epic: they’re on a quest to free Homeworld from the clutches of the tyrannical Baron Karza.

    But the adventure doesn’t stop there. Our micro-sized heroes also find themselves on Earth, where they cross paths with some of Marvel’s heavyweight heroes and villains. Imagine the excitement as they interact with iconic characters like the Fantastic Four, S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain Universe, and Man-Thing, adding an extra layer of depth to this already captivating storyline.

    What makes this Omnibus edition even more enticing is the meticulous restoration work. It’s a true labor of love, not only including the original issues but also preserving the letters pages, which provide valuable insights into the era when these comics were first published. Additionally, the Omnibus is loaded with a treasure trove of bonus material, from vintage house ads that take you back in time to original artwork that showcases the creative process behind “The Micronauts.”

    This Omnibus edition is a collector’s dream, bringing together the entire “Micronauts” saga from 1979, comprising issues #1 to #29, along with Annual #1 and #2. It’s not just a comic book; it’s a time machine that transports us back to the golden age of storytelling, offering both nostalgia and new discoveries for fans and collectors alike. So, get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey through the Microverse with “The Micronauts” Omnibus! I better start saving for this one. You can get a payment plan. Wow, books are getting way too expensive. This is one book that will never end up in a discount bin.
