ROM the spaceknight by royalboiler ROM the spaceknight by royalboiler
Here's my entry for Floating worlds Rom the spaceknight show and book.

I didn't get to put as much time as I normally would into it on account of all the art I'm trying to catch up on.

The idea was to show who Roms been hanging out with
since the 80's.
The indian girl and dude in the back are related, he's like her uncle and they use sound as weapons.(flute wind weapons) he's a badassed space surfer. The tiger carries the soul of a dead man in the helmet around his neck and the little 4 eyed kid is an alien that communes with nature.

This is a scene where someone is meeting with Rom to talk serious buizness. Anything you have to say to Rom you can say in front of his dudes.

A few years ago Marvel did kind of a pointless sequel to Rom, just to scrape the barrell for $..
IMO you could do better, in your own fashion a story on these lines like Lindsner did "Killraven"...

This is pretty sharp, and it reminds me of the sole ROM issue I ever owned...the one with the Bill Sienkiewicz cover.

No, thank you for posting things worth looking at. I found you ages ago through Becky, and I only last month got around to picking up King City. Great read, and bonus points to the Rockwell song reference on page 146.

I nearly shot my coffee out my nostrils.

Geez.

This is the second reference to ROM I've encountered this week. After about 20 years of silence on the subject. I remember I used to have a ROM the Space Knight book back when I was a kid. I think I Traded it off somewhere like a dumbass.

Nice work, as usual! Is your book out on shelves, yet? King City, was it?

:iconroyalboiler:
royalboiler Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2007
hey Dan,

apparently rom is in the air.
And King city is out, but it's getting released in big book stores
Tue 08 Jan 2008, then it'll be easier to find-plus I got an oni press book
out called multiple warheads.

I'd like to hear what you think of them if you track em down.

That is soooo awesome! It kind of makes me think of what a comic might look like if Wes Anderson wrote it. I would love to see Marvel do this book with you. It would be the RADest.

is it rude to say that your characters are cooler than Rom is?

either way, between this and the fact that golden worked on that title, it really makes me wanna dig around for some of those in a bin...

but justto see the Golden covers is a good reason to
trak them down.
