Here's my contribution to the Spaceknight- ROM Tribute Show that Jason Leivian at Floating World Comics is putting on in order to help out Bill Mantlo. I'm sure most folks reading this have heard, but just in case this is news to you ,Mantlo (who wrote every story in the 75 issue running ROM comic back in the day) was injured in a hit and run accident back in '92 and due to severe injuries now resides in a brain injury rehab nursing home.
This show will serve as a fundraiser and celebration of the stories Bill has given us. All of the artwork and more will be compiled in a tribute comic next year that will be sold as a non-profit benefit book for Bill’s brother/caregiver, Mike Mantlo, to provide funding to enable Bill to enjoy somewhat of a quality of life.
In the meantime if you dig this, or if you'd like a print and/or original ROM art by the likes of Chuck BB, Jim Rugg, Jeffrey Brown, Simon Gane, Frank Miller, Bill Sienkiewicz, P. Craig Russell, Sal Buscema, Steve Ditko and tons of others you can check out the show here:

I remember wanting that ROM action figure that they advertised in the back pages of lots of 80's comics. . . GREAT JOB! And for a good cause.
