Looks like things are picking up here again at least for the time being. I want to open up this posting by thanking Gary Martin Jr. for not giving me a heads up about this newly discovered fan art. Fortunately, I know about his secret hiding place he squirrels away all the Rom related art work he finds. But that's ok I can always go help myself to the stuff he finds that I've missed. Anyways, here's a new one by Yildiary Cinar. Talk about a solid illustration this is my kinda fan art, dynamic, slightly stylized and especially well done from a figure composition stand point.
Here we have the 3rd in a line of fan art I've seen so far when it comes to a ROM spaceknight / Green Lantern theme. Rom's head is a bit small in proportion to the rest of his body but this is otherwise a really solid illustration it's done by this guy
Ok a couple more things I want to get to here. The Vision of Comics gave me a heads up about this new novel (not graphic novel) by Dan Abnett about Rocket Raccoon & Groot that among other things featured a spaceknight by the name of Roamer. I passed that info along to our resident Rom curator Gary Martin Jr. who in turned asked me if I'd mention it on the blog. As you all know I don't care for Rocket or Groot but because I'm such a stand up guy so here I am mentioning it for Gary.
And just so you all know I also mentioned the Hasbro Rom doll to Dan Abnett on farcebook this morning in the hopes it might help get things moving along as far as what we all really want to see which is a return of ROM to the marvel universe and an end to these badly mishandled half ass continuities we've had to endure for years now.

Now I don't really care about the doll it's self cuz I think it's kinda stupid but if this news is legit it raises some interesting points. The first one being that we now know for certain who owns the rights to ROM spaceknight and we also now know that all the related documents and material to that copy right isn't just simply in the back of some dusty filing cabinet in a basement or warehouse filled with archival paper work Hasbro never bothers with. In effect that means there's a little less red tape then had been previously assumed which in turn makes me hate Marvel even more then I do now. You'd think by now somebody from Marvel or Hasbro would have gotten the idea to approach the other company and raise the issue of some manner of revival by now. Anyways, here's the MTV article let me know what you think . . .

I found this really nice illustration of Bill while doing some random browsing on the net. It apparently was in the back pages of a Howard The Duck magazine from 1980. I then started to experiment a bit with various selected images from the fan art based on Bill's work I've done over the past couple of years and I think it turned out alright.
Update: And speaking of fan art of all sorts here's some stuff that's appeared recently that's worth taking a look at:
This one turned up just a couple days after I published this posting you guys are gonna want to see this http://dannphillips.deviantart.com/art/ROM-takes-on-EVERYONE-463615019

For those of you who saw my note here earlier I want to let you know that this new fan art from Dann Phillips I'm posting here today (June 17th) is not what I was anticipating. It's just coincidental that it turned up recently but who cares I'm just happy to post some sweet ass fan art whenever I get the chance. But with any luck I'll have even more to add here from some one else in what I hope will be within the next 48 hours (hint hint).
