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.
