floating world comics in portland, OR recently invited me to be a part of their "spacenite 2" tribute show to bill mantlo, the writer of marvel's ROM, spaceknight.

bill was seriously injured in a hit and run accident in 1992 and currently resides in a brain care rehab home. his brother cares for him and this show is a way to help provide some funding so that bill may enjoy somewhat of a quality of life.

the show will feature an amazing lineup of artists including mike allred, eric powell, and while portacio among many others. and the coolest part is that all of the art will be collected into a tribute book that will debut the night of the show and all proceeds will directkly benefit mr. mantlo.

needless to say, i'm honored to be a part of this inspiring event.

the show and book release are scheduled for may 6, 2010. please check out the blog for more info.

Damn, you just completely dated yourself. :-)
I had the comics. Can't remember if I had the figure.

Is there a Micronauts one in the works? :-) I did have these action figures. Loved them.

I completely didn't read this was to benefit the writer. It's terrible he's going through this. Loved the comics as a kid.

Man this is Wicked cool Love this Art Deco motif It suits his look Perfectly!! Well my friend this is also a call to arms especially since you've shown such great respect as to share Bill Mantio's information as well! Not meant as a spam but a chance to help if you love this big guy and want to be apart of getting him back!

Thanks to David H, csuhsux here, has a blog dedicated to the man! Thanks to a comic featuring Hybrid a villain from Rom's book we may have a chance to help bring Rom back by request if we drum up enough to show its worth it! Here's the Email address if you want to help MHEROES@MARVEL.COM and a link to Csuhsux blog if you want to check it out what he posted in detail about the Hybrid story and this info!
A couple Rom pieces to share from my gallery to share as well hope you like!
