Michael Golden’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition Celebrates the Masterful Illustration of Miniature Heroes

In June, IDW Publishing will release the latest addition to its multiple Eisner Award-winning AE line with Michael Golden’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition.

Over 40 years ago, Marvel debuted the influential Micronauts comic book series, licensed at the time from the Mego Corporation (the Micronauts brand has since been acquired by Hasbro). The original series quickly amassed a hardcore fan following, one that survives decades later thanks to the mesmerizing narrative by Bill Mantlo and otherworldly illustration of Michael Golden and fellow artists.

Out of print for 35 years, six complete issues of Micronauts (#3, #7-9, and #11-12) will be collected in the 184-page Artist’s Edition, alongside a gallery section of more than a dozen covers, art rarities from the era, and additional pages that represent some of Michael Golden’s very best from the Micronauts series. This gorgeous hardcover measures 12” x 17”.

As with all Artist’s Editions, nearly every gorgeous plate will be reproduced from scans of the original art and printed at the same size they were drawn, with all the distinctive creative nuances that make original art unique – a perfect representation of the work in its original form.

IDW will donate a portion of profits to the long-term medical care of Bill Mantlo, who has received treatment for cognitive and memory impairment since a 1992 hit-and-run accident.
