Rom (Spaceknight) #1 - non-attributed Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller
Rom spaceknight v1 #1, 1979 - This premiere issue features the first appearance of Rom, an interstellar hero based on the Parker Brothers toy. Using a common approach for first issues, Frank Miller places the hero centrally and prominently while bystanders fill the background. Each figure is carefully placed in an orderly design. The worm's eye view adds some dynamism to the scene, but not enough to offset the lack of details. Some comic book guides neglect to attribute this cover to Miller. Other artists in this issue include Sal Buscema. This is number 1 of 4 Rom issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Rom issues.
