Comics Alliance Presents Here’s The Thing Episode 5: Strange Tales Of Toy Comics With Chad Bowers

Here's The Thing, Episode 5

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

This week, Chris is joined by Down Set Fight and Subatomic Party Girls co-writer Chad Bowers for a conversation about the very strange ways that toy comics are influenced by their source material -- and how sometimes, that source material influences right back. Special guests include G2 Megatron and Chameleon, the Baroness's identical cousin.

The ROM Remix Project Recreates ‘ROM: Spaceknight’ #1 To Raise Funds For Bill Mantlo

ROM Remix art by Super Ugly

ROM: Spaceknight is unquestionably one of my all-time favorite comics. Part of that is just because of how weird it is -- a licensed toy tie-in launched before G.I. Joe and Transformers for a line of action figures that only included exactly one toy that fleshed things out by dropping him straight into the Marvel Universe and ended up running for 75 issues, plus annuals -- but really, it's more because it was really good. Writer Bill Mantlo managed to take the bare minimum of source material and build something that was operatic and compelling, on par with anything else of the era.

Tragically, Mantlo -- also the co-creator of Rocket Raccoon -- was struck by a hit-and-run driver in 1992 and suffered a traumatic brain injury, bringing his comics writing career to a close and leaving him in need of constant care. There's been a surge of awareness about him lately, and the the latest is coming from Rob Harrington, whose ROM Remix Project has seen 20 artists re-creating the entirety of ROM #1 in an effort to lead more people to Mantlo and raise money for his ongoing care.

A Brief History of ‘ROM: Spaceknight’ in Marvel Comics

rom01

Last week, in the pages of Annihilators #1, Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and Tan Eng Huat did something that I've been waiting for since the resurgence of Marvel's cosmic titles that began five years ago: They began a story that draws on the events of ROM: Spaceknight.
