ROM "returns"

I missed this when it was first announced but then saw it mentioned in the sales article below. IDW has acquired the rights to ROM, and it'll be co-written by Christos Gage. I guess ROM split off from the Marvel Universe during Secret Wars. ;-)

The best thing about the old ROM series was his interaction with the rest of the Marvel universe, so i don't know that i'll get this, but i think it's interesting news.

This displeases me.

Why? Did you not like ROM?

I do not like Rom severed from the Marvel U and the mythology that was built in the original run.
IDW have played nice w Marvel before, getting those Spider-Man/Savage Land/Circuit Breaker/Death's Head appearances finally collected, so maybe they will finally reprint the Marvel run. That would be the bright side.
But I really don't see a new Rom series w a mythology starting from scratch being very appealing to old or new fans.
