In 2000, Marvel published a 5-issue limited series sequel to Rom that was met with resounding silence, winning the dubious honor of being their lowest seller that year. Doesn't sound promising, does it?
I've decided to push Spaceknight Saturdays 5 weeks more (inching towards my threeversary on December 9th) and take into account the story of Rom's sons, warts and all.
Speaking of warts, though the series was the brainchild of artist Chris Batista, Marvel brought in Jim "Cosmic" Starlin to write it. Here's what Starlin had to say about it (interview with Universe HQ):
"I thought [Rom] was a pretty dumb character back in the seventies. I just took on the job of scripting the series so that I could pay for some parts for my boat."
Join us tomorrow for the work-for-hire, phoning-it-in splendor that is Spaceknights #1!
