Traveling through the Bronze Age with Rom
I recently came across a tumbler page that contains a series of podcasts of Rom issues 1-7 by a couple of fans. The episodes for issues 1 and 2 are ok but 3 - 7 are more entertaining. Their definitely nice to have as something like back ground music while you're doing some cleaning, working out or maybe to listen to while you're on some public transit. Chances are even if you've read these issues before you'll get some new insight on them from the podcast discussions in edition to a few laughs as well. Another cool thing is you don't need to have an account or sign up for anything just go to the link and find the play bar: http://bronzeagecomics.tumblr.com/
So above we see a photo sent by one of my favorite commentators Bruce from Spain. What he has there is a print of the Toni Infante painting for the Floating Worlds Comics Bill Mantlo benefit auction from what I believe is 2010. I never knew Bruce had purchased anything from any of those auctions but the issue came up after Bruce noticed that I used that piece for my Atari cartridge mock up.
And to the left of you you're looking at something from the letter column of Marvel Age Magazine #22 (1984). I got it as part of a 3 for $1 deal in San Francisco at a comic shop near the Israel In The Gardens Festival I attended. I'm glad to see ROM was part of his pull list back in the day but I wonder if he's still collecting comics today given that he said he would until he dies.
And last up, some of you may have seen this already. This is a photo of Sal Buscema that's turned up recently on the internet unfortunately I don't know when it was taken.
