Micronauts annual #1
Issue(s): Micronauts annual #1
... who guards a long dead planet where everyone has isolated themselves for fear of disease.
It has a nice early-Ditko Strange Tales type of feel to it...
...and it's a nice story to see Ditko work on for his late 70s return to Marvel.
There's also scenes of where the other Micronaut characters happen to be at this point in time.
It's not a great story, and it's one that probably doesn't work as well when read in chronological order instead of by publishing date, since these characters haven't been properly introduced, but that's my burden.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place prior to Rann returning to Homeworld in Micronauts #1.
Continuity Insert? Y - it's a prequel
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showAcroyear, Baron Karza, Biotron, Bug, Commander Arcturus Rann, Force Commander, Galactic Defender, Marionette, Microtron, Oberon, Shaitan
Ditko clearly just hacked this story out artwise. It's not really comparable to his earlier 1960s work for Marvel or Charlton IMO.
