With A Little Help From My Friends...

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.

Thanks, dude.

it was well worth the wait thanks. sorry if i seemed to be in a foul mood earlier this week when you first gave me a heads up on this posting i was having a lousy day. actually it was a lousy weekend. i like how you censored the blog title in the link to the ROM blog. i almost forgot how much of this ROM/ Dr.Strange/Man-Thing stuff i've done over the past year and a half or so.

DITTO what speedwaygurl said.

Wouldn't take much editing to the cover of ROM #70 to make it look like ROM meets Man-Thing...a color tweak & face replacement...nudge nudge ;-)

Luckily we got all kinds of Dr. Strange support in the Silver Spaceknight's series...

Keep up the good work guys!
