Rom spaceknight Beta Ray Bill team up sketch art

By
Ya know, I've said it a million times already but I'll say it again. The worst thing that ever happened to the ROM series was when Sal Buscema left the title. ROM 65 in particular could have been so much more of an epic issue if ANY other artist working for Marvel at the time had taken over the art instead of steve ditko. Anyways, here's a little something I whipped up this weekend during some down time. As many of you know Beta Ray Bill was one of the many Marvel superheros appeared in ROM 65. Here's a cool panel from THOR 354 where Bill references his part in the Wraith War conclusion romspaceknightart.blogspot.com…

It's so cool how ROM interacted with the Marvel Universe in the old days.

I'm familiar with ROM due to the fact that my husband really liked the comic :XD: He's also the one who introduced me to Beta Ray Bill. You might find you have a lot in common with him actually . . . check out :iconguyinspace:

well in that case he sounds like a keeper you better hold on to him. I hope he'll like this as much as you did.

I like Ditko's work, but he was wrong for the ROM title. 

This is really nice!  Brings back some fun '80s comic book memories.

over the past couple of years I've taken a liking to the character I especially like his origin story.
zionprime's avatar
he does have an awesome origin story. i've always been a fan of his right from the start; as well as thunderstrike. both wonderful thor characters who, in my opinion, were better than the character who started them off: thor.

You always show more detail than the original comic covers. Now I'd like to see this in color...

scratch that last comment i made to you apparently there was some sort of misunderstanding. so maybe i'll just do it myself one of these days if the mood strikes me.
csuhsux's avatar

Love Beta Ray Bill...that whole storyline Simonson did was (or seemed to me at the time) so off the wall. "What's happened to Thor? What the***, an alien Thor!! My god, this is awesome!!"
I love Sal's art on Rom, he was and is such an under-rated artist.
He could crank out page after page and be consistently good. Just didn't have the big fanbase of some of the "hot" artists.
I seem to recall Akin & Garvey did some excellent inks over Sal's pencils for some issues too. 

COOL image, dude.
I'm inspired to do a few more Rom, Beta Ray Bill pics myself!

Nice stuff. ood old Bill, such an odd character but one who somehow works. I just wish writers would give him some respect once more. Last several times Ive seen him he's gotten rather dumped on.
