The Sanctum Sanctorum Comix Blog
by Michael Golden
While I am otherwise "engaged" with work-related stuff, and before I am fully able to complete my long-promised multi-part epic essay post ("5-Fingers of Death for Doctor Strange"), I thought that, like Doctor Strange and his DEFENDERS, I would rely on the aid of my friends to help carry the day.
Over the past year or so, friend-of-the-blog, and fellow ROM; Spaceknight fan; David Holsey (owner / operator of the "Blog for Rom Fans Who Aren't D!¢%s") has been sending me his own photo-manipulated composites of images and artwork of my three favorite comic book heroes - ROM Spaceknight, Man-Thing and Doctor Strange.
So, I thought it was high-time (or really, long past the time) for me to showcase them here and say thanks for all the positive thoughts and gestures of friendship and good will.
I hope you all enjoy these as much as I.

Man-Thing and ROM
by Michael Golden
An embarrassing cover photo montage of ROM and myself dressed as Doctor Strange
(from a photo taken in 1997 for a Wizard Magazine Halloween Costume Contest
- of which I blogged a few years back [HERE])
(the above photo of ROM taken from an old 1980's promotional pic of Marvel characters making public appearances.)
And last but not least, this segment of a re-touched image by Michael Golden from the famed "Merry Marvel Marching Confusion" print, wherein David H. superimposed a pose of ROM - also drawn by Golden, to make a perfect storm of my blog-trilogy heroes.
You can see the complete image over at David's blog [HERE].
And you can read this old post, here on my blog, all about how WHY those three heroes are the "Founding Fathers" of my comic-reading habit [HERE] - which is what inspired David to send these to me.
