Micronauts #38 (1982)

This is the issue that moved Micronauts to a 32-page, no advertisements, 75 cent, direct market book.  From here on out, you could only find it in comic book stores.

Here’s how they explained it on the Micromails letters page:

It was a new way to respond to sales figures for books like this one, Ka-Zar, and Moon Knight, which tended to attrack more of a “cult” following.

Mantlo used this opportunity to tell the back story of Commander Rann and Baron Karza.

Creators: Bill Mantlo and John Garcia
