Quarter-Bin Podcast #40
ROM Spaceknight #1, Marvel Comics, cover-dated December 1979.
"Arrival!" written by Bill Mantlo, with art by Sal Buscema.
When a scary-looking alien robot appears in West Virginia, and start blowing away locals, reasonable questions come to mind. Is he bent on conquest? Or is he actually a man with a mission to destroy shape-shifting aliens? And especially, how could a toy develop such a compelling backstory?
These are questions that needed a guest to help answer, so Scott Gardner of Two True Freaks joined me to dig through this terrific (spoilers) first issue.
Thanks to Scott for producing and scoring the episode, as well as guesting on it. He is one multi-talented fella!
