1979 - Unpublished Rom #1 cover

From, the unused cover for ROM #1, penciled by Michael Netzer.

Here's the explanation as to why the original art was torn apart:

And here's the one that was published.



  1. The original cover looks like the work of a child, and the artists' story sounds like the delusions of a lunatic. Very entertaining!

  2. Well, I've been hoping someone would finally provide a credible psychiatric diagnosis of that story. I just don't know if I can trust someone who seems to believe that art which doesn't look like Marvel comics must have been created by children. At least you were entertained, which was a big reason for doing it.

  3. Hi Jason, Very nice blogs you're keeping. Best wishes with the writing!

  4. Michael-

    I have been on mission trips where I just went with God as I felt led, and so I am not surprised that your grace and humility and desire kept you from any great consequences.

    Thank you for sharing! By the way, ROM was one of my favorite characters and I did not miss an issue, beginning with number 8 or so. He truly was a noble figure in my mind.
