In the aftermath of REVOLUTION, the Micronauts are trapped in a world inhabited by giants! Oz, Phen, Acroyear, and crew desperately struggle to find their way home—but they discover they weren’t Microspace’s first visitors to planet Earth.
Though the final issue of Revolution hasn’t been released yet, this issue of Micronauts picks with the team trying to make sense of their new situation. This feels like what they were hoping to reach all along with the team finally on Earth and having to find away back home to save their universe from being destroyed. Writer Cullen Bunn finally has reached the point he was working towards since issue one. Will this help to boost the series? Hopefully yes.
The change of venue does add a lot of nice elements to the book. Acroyear fighting against the gigantic soldiers seems to make him feel more enduring as a character compared to him fighting against wave after wave of the disposable enemies he was dealing with previously. Also the introduction Dr. Dell, the human who is willing to help them may provide the last bit of drama and emotion the team seemed to be missing.
Max Dunbar’s artwork really comes out in full force in this issue. The perspective shots which help to showcase just how small the Micronauts are compared to the rest of the world are very detailed and helps to supply the reader with a great sense of scale. The panels help to show he was the right man to bring on for this job from the beginning.
The new Reconstruction event may just been what the series needed. It was feeling rushed trying to get to this point. Now time to see what kind of stories will come out of where the writer was trying to get the series to all along. For the Micronauts fans out, there this is issue is a small ray of hope things might just work out.
