Micronauts: The New Voyages #5
Issue(s): Micronauts: The New Voyages #5
The Micronauts are able to check on the state of their robots this issue, but what they find isn't too promising, and a damaged Biotron actually attacks Marionette. Arcturus Rann coldly shoots him down.
Meanwhile Bug is apparently feeling sorry for himself. I guess at some point during Mantlo's run, Bug and Marionette were an item, but now that Rann is back in the picture he's been forgotten. He winds up deciding to abandon the group to hang out with his new girfriend, who has a cloned version of Marionette's body but in a more appealing color.
There's also some more talk about the Makers. It seems the strange spiral galaxy that the Micronauts come from is considered an area of some significance by the creatures here.
There's a lot to like here, but a little too much melodrama and the Maker mystery so far isn't really all that intriguing (unless the Makers turn out to be the Mego Corporation or something). Cool concepts and weirdness, though.
It's a bit of a slow build, i guess, and doesn't have the immediate impact of, say, Peter Gillis' Defenders.
