I was a Micronauts comics fan in my younger days. Sometimes it seems like I was the only one who ever read that thing.
Good shit is good!
...and the artwork is great too. That's what is missing from all of the "Old School" clones. Really cool old style artwork...Ciao!
I have that edition of the Dying Earth- it's a first- and I got it signed by JV back in the late 90's.
Thongor and the Dragon City! I love that name, and now I want to read the book. It goes on the list.Oh yeah, before I forget, shameless self-promotion:http://havedicewilltravel.blogspot.com/
Wow great covers one and all.
Groo the Wanderer! Yes!
I was also a fan and collector of Micronauts comics and toys. Many of the figures were made of die-cast metal, and if if I recall corectly, the earliest fully poseable action figures(small sized vs. the larger fuzzy hair GI Joe or Star Trek Dolls). Acroyear was the coolest!
@James - Not so. I'm a big Micronauts fan as well.
I stumbled across some Micronauts anthologies not too long ago and picked them up. I was pleasantly surprised to still find the stories and characters engaging. I also don't think I realized back when that this was largely the same team that was doing the X-Men of the early-mid 80's, my favorite run of that mag. Man, the Body Banks were creepy. And the populations of whole worlds disappeared into them. Talk about a great hook to steal for a campaign!
@Sir Larkins - I got to meet S.A. at the 2001 MegaCon, he was a great guy. Could barely speak a word of english, but when I asked him about his inspriation for Groo he said "Conan and Penthouse!" :)
Not only did I subscribe to the Micronauts comic... (I was a fan of the toys) ...I used the Microverse in the background to my latest Marvel Super Heroes PC, so the GM (Narrator?) had to include some Micronauts.
Micronauts rocked! I have most of the issues from back in the day.
