Rom Spaceknight (1979) 1-75 Complete Run Annuals Extras Set 81 Comics Lot Mint For Sale
ROM: Spaceknight (1979) Complete Set #1 (12/79) - #75 (2/86) Annuals 1-4 Marvel Two-in-One #99 (5/83) Incredible Hulk #296 (6/84)Who would've imagined that a comic book based on a crappy plastic toy could be so engaging! The comic lasted far longer than the toy did. Writer Bill Mantlo created an entire backstory for a licensed property from scratch and placed it squarely inside the Marvel universe. Turning the lead character into a Silver Surfer archetype; a soliloquizing, misunderstood hero who was unhappy about his circumstances but determined to use his power to fight for good in a war against the shape-shifting Dire Wraiths. A cult classic with appearances by the X-Men, Alpha Flight, Power Man & Iron Fist, Nova, The Torpedo, Namor the Sub-Mariner, The Avengers (drawn by Steve Ditko!!) among many others. The rights to the character reverted back to Hasbro many years ago so there are NO REPRINTS or TPBs. These original comics are the only way to enjoy this series!I'm also including Incredible Hulk #296 and Marvel Two-in-One #99 which both feature ROM. I believe this covers every major ROM appearance in Marvel continuity.The average grade of the books in this set are NM/M. A VERY solid collection that doesn't come around very often in this condition and one you'd be proud to own. Additionally, a portion of this sale will be donated to the fund providing ongoing nursing home care to writer Bill Mantlo who unfortunately suffered a traumatic brain injury in 1992.All books are from my one-owner personal collection, bagged, boarded and properly stored. If you would like a scan of any particular issue, I will be happy to provide.Check my other sales for more great comic lots and consecutive runs from my personal collection!
