Its being fun to be working on this project and my thanks to Al for his understanding and patience. I have been dealing with some family issues and thanks folks for not asking what it is .

I loved that ROM statue. I was lucky enough to have gotten one of the MB, but the statue is beyond words!!

First off, I want to say thank you to Helder for starting this thread. I am very excited about seeing the WIP pics for ROM Spaceknight!

As many of you know, I already have this sculpt by Helder from several years ago. Danno did the paint job on that one and we went with the silver look of the first several issues of ROM Spaceknight. This time, I wanted to go with the white look with light blue shading used in later issues. Helder was happy to comply. I can't wait to see how he turns out.

ROM Spaceknight is up there with Hulk, Cap, Iron Man and The Micronauts for me. He is one of my all-time favorite characters in comics. I would say that the first 25 or so issues of Rom Spaceknight are among my most treasured comics.

You're a lucky man to have 2 of these, Al! I'm looking forward to how this one looks when complete.

I just hope Helder gets around to doing Archie Stryker as the Spaceknight, Firefall eventually! Besides ROM, he was my favorite!

Doesn't Sal draw most things better period? Or maybe it's just me but I loves me some Buscema.
