ROM #25 (1981)

A double-sized issue to celebrate the 25th issue of a book I would have bet wouldn’t have lasted more than a year.  ROM finally gets back home to Galador, where he has been the victim of identity theft: Another Spaceknight is wearing identical armor and has captured all the other Spaceknights and become the king of the planet.  Obviously, ROM gets his name back and frees his old friends.  Other than in flashback stories, this is the first time we see the full array of spaceknights fighting together.

There’s a backup story that doesn’t take place in-continuity and feels like an inventory story or an excuse to double the price and add some pages.

Creators: Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema (first story); Steven Grant and Greg LaRocque (second story)
Grade: C-
