MICRONAUTS #1-8 (Cullen Bunn / David Baldeon)

Lors du San Diego Comic Con de juillet dernier, IDW Publishing annonçait avoir acquis les droits d’exploitations de Rom The Space Knight et Micronauts, deux séries inspirées par des jouets et dont les droits étaient bloqués depuis de nombreuses années.

Aujourd’hui, à l’occasion du New York Comic Con, l’éditeur à révélé le nom des équipes créatives qui lanceront les nouveaux titres au cours de l’année 2016.

Rom, le chevalier de l’espace cyborg, sera supervisée par le responsable éditorial Chris Ryall avec l’aide du scénariste Christos Gage (Buffy, The Vampire Slayer, Daredevil) et des dessinateurs David Messina & Paolo Villanelli.

Quant à la série sur les Micronauts, l’équipe chargée de protéger le Microverse, elle a été confiée au (trop) prolifique Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men, The Sixth Gun, Aquaman) et au dessinateur David Baldeon (Nova).

Pour le moment, il n’y a eu aucune annonce concernant une réédition des célèbres épisodes produits par Marvel Comics sous la supervision de Bill Mantlo.
