From The Edges Of Inner Space, The Micronauts Return To Marvel Comics In All-New Omnibus Collections

From The Edges Of Inner Space, The Micronauts Return To Marvel Comics In All-New Omnibus Collections


Jay Cochran - May 25, 2023
Earlier this week, Marvel Comics proudly announced an exciting new collaboration with Hasbro, a global leader in play, that would result in new collections of Rom the Spaceknight’s beloved comic book adventures. Today, Marvel is thrilled to reveal that another popular toy-originating comic book series will receive the same treatment: THE MICRONAUTS!

From out of the Microverse, it’s the Omnibus you thought could never happen! The subatomic superstars headlined a long-running series packed with rich world-building, fascinating mythology and big-scale, sci-fi excellence! With the series set in the main Marvel Comics universe, the Micronauts joined forces with the X-Men and the Fantastic Four and dared to go up against the likes of Doctor Doom, Arcade, and other iconic Marvel super villains. Like ROM, these exemplary comic book classics were written by industry legend Bill Mantlo and will be reprinted for the first time ever in MICRONAUTS: THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS OMNIBUS, on sale April 2024. In anticipation for this long-awaited collection, fans can also pick up a facsimile edition of the Micronauts’ comic book debut, 1979’s MICRONAUTS #1, this September!

MICRONAUTS: THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS OMNIBUS VOL. 1 will collect THE MICRONAUTS (1979) #1-29 & ANNUAL (1979) #1-2 and material from MICRONAUTS SPECIAL EDITION (1983) #1-5. Helmed by writer Bill Mantlo, the Micronauts brought together the subatomic heroes of Homeworld and the Marvel Universe. Mantlo’s rich character mythology and groundbreaking artwork by Michael Golden made the series an instant classic. In Micronauts, Commander Rann, Princess Mari, Biotron, Acroyear and Bug traverse the universe aboard the microship Endeavor as they struggle to free Homeworld from the tyrannical Baron Karza. Their exploits also bring them to Earth where our micro-sized heroes encounter big-time heroes and villains including the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain Universe and Man-Thing. This Omnibus edition presents a stunning restoration, complete with letters pages and a host of bonus material, including house ads, original artwork and more.

MICRONAUTS #1 FACSIMILE EDITION boldly re-presents MICRONAUTS (1979) #1, one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, in its original form, ads and all! They came from inner space! Explorer Arcturus Rann! Freedom-fighting princess Marionette! The armored warrior Acroyear! Fun-loving thief Bug! The robots Microton and Biotron! They are the greatest heroes of the Microverse! But after 1,000 years in suspended animation, Rann has returned to a Homeworld vastly changed from the one he knew — and Mari’s family was killed in the coup d’état that saw Baron Karza rise to power. Now, together with their allies, they begin their epic quest to free Homeworld from the tyrannical Karza’s iron grip in the first chapter of an acclaimed comic-book space opera from the legendary creative pairing of Bill Mantlo and Michael Golden!

Check out the covers now, including a wide variety of Direct Market Exclusive Variant Covers from industry legends! Experience these beloved and rare stories all over again or for the very first time when MICRONAUTS #1 FACSIMILE EDITION hits stands in September, and when MICRONAUTS: THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS OMNIBUS arrives next year!

They did as part of an SDCC IDW Revolution set

I grabbed that ROM, though his "armor" appears to be silver pants, folds and all, it is still a fun 3 3/4" figure. So at least at that scale, ROM is alive and well in my Marvel Universe collection.

In the mid to late 80s I sampled the Micronaughts comic and they weren't for me. Back then you could get every comic Marvel put out with .65 or .75 cent cover prices..seems like I jumped on for a brief run around the time they participated in that Secret Wars II crossover..

They can do what ever they like as they owned the properties. They just can't place it under the marvel banner.

I don't think we can. This is a Hasbro owned property so they can only launch it in their own line.

Ahh, true. Well, if they ever do make their own line, I think it would be sweet if they did some kind of sharing deal with Marvel (if Sony and Disney could agree to share Spidey, then anything is possible, lol)
