Last week's question was about underrated comics so I thought this week we'd feature one.

ROM the Spaceknight. He's underrated because his stuff hasn't ever been reprinted. How did he end up in a legal dispute?

Here is issue #5. Why #5? Because it came out in Jan of 1980 at the beginning of the board's coverage area.

Here is a link to the comic on Diversions of the Groovy Kind for you visual pleasure:

The only issue of Rom I've read was one I bought off the spinner rack at the grocery store as a kid. Rom helps Namor fight off an undersea invasion by the Dire Wraiths. For some reason I really loved this issue and read it a ton of times. I haven't thought about it in years, now I want to reread it!

Mantlo and Buscema is a recipe for pure comic enjoyment for me, and Rom was no exception. Great long-running story. Truly, an underrated book of the 80's.
