Micronauts #1

Screen Shot 2016 04 26 at 3

Micronauts is an interplanetary adventure that begins with the realization that an entropic wave is destroying entire civilizations. A man, who was sent to monitor the progress, tries to help but his robotic suit keeps him from interfering as the world crumbles around him. We then meet Oz, who works delivering goods as he interacts with his team who are having a disagreement with others about the lack of empathy about the fallen planet. Oz ends up in a fight and is saved by his gliding friend. Their pay is docked due to the fight, but they are offered another mission.

When they arrive at the destination everything seems odd and after scouting out the place they realize it is crawling with guards.  They fight them off, but it isn’t long before the bots rebuild themselves.

They try to get to safety but are left with even more confusing results after they discover some unusual machinery.

The Good

  • I tend to be a big fan of robots, they always look really interesting and complicated. It is always fun when a comic has different types of robots peppered throughout that show the advanced technology.
  • It is a nice diverse team, with a variety of characters that interact well together.
  • Feels a little bit like Futurama meets Firefly meets something darker. Interesting combination.  Oz is some kind of mix of Fry and Malcolm Reynolds, a leader but kind of a goofy one.

The Bad

  • A lot is going on and there are a lot of jumps between story lines. There is a character who seems to have a plan that I can only assume is an antagonist based on the tone, but there is no explanation yet. Seems like a throw away introduction that could use some more focus in the next issue. Screen Shot 2016 04 26 at 3

The Art

  • The art is extremely detailed and does a good job of highlighting the “space” feel of the book. Even little details like Oz’s metal chin kind of makes it look like the soul patch of the future. There also is a lot of diversity in the characters, each one is pretty unique looking including the robots so that is always nice when a story has so much going on because it lets you keep track of everyone a little bit better.

The Verdict

7 out of 10

7 out of 10

The story is a little bit confusing given that it jumps to so many individual storylines but it does have good intentions. Leads up to a good ending that should progress into a great story about Oz and his team.
