    ConclusionOverall the series is off to a great start, the plot continues to bring a fresh take to the character, partnered with the art, the series should continue to do the great work that has been established by the creative team. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Aug 28, 2016

    It's fun to revisit this top-notch sci-fi series, and I hope it lasts for a long, long time. Batman will always be called "The Dark Knight," but now ROM will be called "The Space Knight" again, something I'm truly enjoying! (Even his nickname was ahead of its time!) Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Sep 6, 2016

    I like the direction writer Christos Gage and Chris Ryall are taking the story. They managed to get out a lot of the essential set-up in the first issue and that allows them to spend more time in ROM #2 working with ROM and Mason as characters. They have also introduced a major twist that could set up compelling future stories. The Wraiths are still a little one-dimensional, though. The art continues to be inconsistent as well. It is good enough, though there are some panels that just look strange. ROM is off to a decent start, thought I think there are ways the series can improve. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Larose Aug 24, 2016

    Mantlo's original Rom Spaceknight was far from a series built on a few issues, and it's easy to see the ways this new series can come into its own and tell a story as weird and engaging as Rom ever was. Read Full Review
