MY FAVORITE COMICS - ROM #1-19
Alien cyborg fights shapeshifting witches from outer space! Only the 1980s could produce a comic with such a premise and somehow make it work. Silly as it may sound today, ROM had the coolest concept ever for a kid on that particular time of the late 20th century. Again, just as with Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema's run on the Hulk, I'll stick with initial issues mostly for the full-art chores by Buscema (as legendary an inker as Joe Sinnott may be, his work on the following issues, as well as that of subsequent inkers, brought an emaciation to Sal Buscema's artwork that diluted its power and iconicity, imho).
