Comics based on toys usually held only marginal interest for me, but there were a couple of exceptions. The Micronauts was based on some of my favorite toys of my youth, and featured the gorgeous art of Michael Golden. The fact that Marvel had the characters firmly rooted in the Marvel universe, with plenty of guest appearances, made it even better. I didn't really pay much attention to the video game tie-in aspect to Atari Force, it was the amazing artwork of Jose Luis Garcia Lopez that drew me in. I'd love to see either of these teams return, but with tangled rights situations, I am not holding my breath.
