Yes, I have but two comics this week, Annihilation #1 and Secret Six #3. No, I haven't bought either of them yet. Yes, I'll be getting them tomorrow.

That said, just caught an interesting interview over at Newsarama with Keith Giffen, author of Annihilation.

And I quote:

NRAMA: "Can you give us a hint about some obscure characters we might see?"

KG: "We're going to see the Spaceknights before it's over!"

***squeals with delight as if Grant Morrison just announced he was doing the scripts for a new The Prisoner TV series***

OK, so the chances are we won't actually see ROM himself (since Marvel lost the rights), but any SpaceKnight action is better than no SpaceKnight action as far as my 8-year-old inner child is concerned.

And I'd be shocked if there isn't a panel at some point that shows ROM, but he's not actually named as such.

Keith, you just sold 6 issues of Annihilation with that little tidbit. Well done.

Rom is one of the earliest comics I remember reading. I hope you're right about the unamed cameo.

What is it about ROM that gets you fan boys all worked up? All I remembered was some comic with a dude in funky, pinkish purplish armor. Or was it white? And didn't he resurrect the X-men and make it so no one can see them on video? I can't remember. But yeah. ROM? Really? ROM?

Dude! ROM was number 2 on my comic book list of my childhood. Having come full circle in the last few years back to comics world, the first thing I did was buy all the ROM comics that Samuari had in stock. Had no idea that Marvel lost the rights to it. Interested to see how they bring Spaceknights in.

Kieth Giffen, I salute you. Thank you for giving us a real War.

The stupid thing is that it's not as if (a) Kenner or Hasbro or whoever are getting a lot of use out of Rom at the moment, and (b) it can't be that expensive a licence for Marvel to pursue.
