Art doesn’t have to match the couch. – someone
ROM: the Spaceknight. 10″x10″ on canvas, stretched on wood. This one is neat because the background is actual comic panels from a vintage ROM comic.
To build interest in the toy, Parker Brothers licensed the character to Marvel Comics which created a comic book featuring Rom. The comic expanded on the premise that Rom was a cyborg and gave him an origin, personality, set of supporting characters and villains, as well as interaction within the Marvel Universe. The comic was written by Bill Mantlo and initially illustrated by artist Sal Buscema.
The comic book outlasted the toy which it was created to support. The series lasted for 75 issues over a seven year period, with Rom’s regular encounters with mainstream heroes and villains establishing him as part of Marvel continuity.
Also, I’ve got a couple of items available in the shop. Please head over and check it out. Commission work is available as well. Give the gift of original hand painted art for Christmas this year. Make someone happy.
