Rom (Spaceknight) #17 - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller
Rom v1 #17, 1981 - The X-men guest star in this two-part storyline, conveniently attracting new readers to the title. Frank Miller's cover seems spontaneously drawn but suffers from the inker's lack of clarity. Alongside Rom, Wolverine is prominently featured, the path of his claws leading the eye from the masthead to the title character. Miller places the moon directly behind the child's head, suggesting an innocence with its resemblance to early Byzantine halos. This is number 3 of 4 Rom issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Rom issues. See also this blog's Frank Miller checklist.
