Mantlo Tribute by SeanRM Mantlo Tribute by SeanRM
A while back I learned about an artshow being held for the benifit of Bil Mantlo. Mantlo was responsible for writing my altime favorite comic series of all time, ROM Spaceknight. As such I jumped at the chance to contribute to the show and help out.

After a couple failed attempts caused me to miss out on the first show, I was fortunate enough to be asked to contribute this time.

It was a close one, but I'm really proud of how this turned out. I'm really glad to be able to show my love of this classic series and help raise money for the man that made it possible.

For more information check out the Floating World Comics page - [link]

The show starts tomorrow, so if you're in the Portland area go check it out.

Nothing against ROM, but I thought that the series went downhill when Marvel stained said series with a crossover with their 12-issue Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars miniseries wherein just about every superhero from the Marvel Universe united to stop an invasion force of the Dire Wraiths.

That never bothered me to be honest, it kinda makes sense that as more people learn of the Wraiths that the Super Hero community would get involved. We also got more character development between him and Brandy and the final arc where he returns to Galador.

I have a full run of ROM and the limited Spaceknights comics. I also have a ROM tattoo. I love this piece.

I've almost got a full run, only missing one or two issues. Gotta double check which ones and see about rectifying that.
