I thought you all might like to see this recent Rom fan art by Sal Buscema in color and with the cover art from Rom spaceknight #3 next to it. But aside from that this colorized version was posted along with this message from IDW's Chris Ryall, "The color version of Mars Attacks Rom by Sal Buscema. Colors are by Andrew Elder. This is a bonus pinup running in this week's Mars Attacks IDW trade paperback. So whatever else happens, I published Rom, although now more than ever, it just makes me want to keep pushing to get a new series rolling."
The two big questions here: Does IDW have the balls to go through with printing ROM despite not having the rights to the character and if they go through it will there be any legal fall out?
I'm adding this update to the posting in light of finding out from Chris on Facebook that the Mars Attacks TPB with the Rom bonus pin up indeed has been published and should be at your local comic shop tomorrow for new comic book day. On behalf of all the Rom fans world wide, we salute you and IDW for having the balls to do this. This fan art comes from artist Mark Torres done for Chris as a birthday gift.
