Micronauts is a 2016 comic series published by IDW Publishing, based on the '70s Micronauts toyline, a Western import of the Japanese Microman series.

Written by Cullen Bunn, it follows the titular Micronauts, a ragtag band of space adventurers who wind up on a quest to save their universe, known as Microspace, from the enigmatic entropy cloud that is slowly consuming it. Following its debut arc, the Micronauts participated in the Revolution crossover event, starring in a special Micronauts: Revolution one-shot before appearing in the main event mini-series.

Issue #11 will be the last issue of the series, with the story continuing in the mini-series Micronauts: Wrath of Karza.
