Folks - Thanks for taking the time to check out this thread. I'm sure a lot of you grew up reading Bill Mantlo's stories. I certainly did. His ROM Spaceknight and the Micronauts mean just as much, and in some cases, more than, Lee and Kirby's creations. He was also a long time writer on my favorite comic book, The Incredible Hulk. I think it's great that Ginger Rabbit Studio put out this ROM online comic to draw attention to Bill's plight and needs.


For those of you unfamiliar with Bill's tragedy, here's some info as to what happened to the co-creator of The Guardians of the Galaxy's Rocket Raccoon:

Some folks have asked me, how much should I donate? I think a good answer (besides only what you can afford) is: However much you paid for a Guardians of the Galaxy movie ticket.

Marvel should sell this in print and donate proceeds to the healthcare fund.


Sash's Bowen Collection Thread

If you see the collection thread in new posts, it's because new pics have been added.

Hopefully, Mike Mantlo's lawyers and Marvel will work something out.
