The original Micronauts look to be getting reprints for the first time

The Hollywood Reporter has some good news coming from IDW, who are publishing a hardcover archive for several issues of the original Micronauts series from 1979-86, one of the earliest comics based on toy merchandise, written by Bill Mantlo and illustrated by Michael Golden, which had not seen official reprints for decades, not just because of licensing problems, but also because they initially involved guest appearances by Marvel cast members proper, something ROM: Spaceknight also featured:
Early issues of Marvel's 1970s and '80s comic book series, illustrated by Michael Golden, will be released in an oversized format by IDW in June.

A lost piece of comic book — and action figure — history will return to fans in a deluxe new format this summer with IDW Publishing’s announcement of Michael Golden’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition, an oversized hardcover collecting six issues of Marvel’s out-of-print comic book series based on the Mego Corporation toy line of the 1970s.
Trouble is, if the following is correct, it'll only be issues that didn't feature Marvel heroes and/or villains in the story:
IDW’s 184-page Michael Golden’s Micronauts will collect Nos. 3, 7-9 and 11-12 of Golden’s run, as well as additional covers and artwork the artist created for the series, reproduced directly from and printed at the same size as the original artwork.
Well this is honestly a shame if the whole still can't be published as opposed the sum of parts, all because Marvel apparently still won't give their own approval for doing it. But, if there's something else good IDW's doing:
According to IDW, a portion of the profits from the book will be donated to the long-term medical care of Mantlo, who has required treatment for cognitive and memory impairment since an accident in 1992.
Now that's excellent thinking on their part, to provide Mantlo's family with the funding he'll need for the medical treatment he's seriously needed for a quarter century, ever since the hit-and-run accident he sadly suffered, which destroyed his career both as a lawyer and a comics writer. If IDW were to have stuck with positive directions like this, and not wasted time on SJW pandering, they might be doing far better financially today. I don't know if this signals a turnaround in their conduct. But for now, it is impressive news.

But isn't helping to pay for the health care of someone in need a prime example of social justice principles? If you want to pander, that is a good way to do it.

When you buy this book, you are CHOOSING to help someone with your money. That's philanthropy.

When the money is TAKEN from you, that's socialism.

You tell me which one is "just". (If you say socialism, feel free to send me your bank routing numbers. Nothing unjust will happen, I promise.)

Capitalist countries and socialist countries both collect taxes. The money is taken from you either way. Having to pay taxes doesn't mean you live in a socialist country.

Philanthropy is an expression of social justice principles.

As reported by Stanford Medical, It's indeed the one and ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years more and weigh an average of 42 lbs less than we do.

(And realistically, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and really, EVERYTHING about "HOW" they eat.)

P.S, What I said is "HOW", not "what"...
