Rom #59

Starshine’s grasp of human slang would improve with alarming speed…

(Thanks to Brian D. for the submission!)

    Very Georgia O’Keeffe. 

  2. A little pee came out…

  3. That’s awesome, I almost did a spit take.

  4. Yep, that’s exactly what it looks like.

  5. I’m good now.  A cup of coffee, a cigarette, a comfortable chair, and a wraith-taint.  The day is all downhill from here.


  7. oh boy

  8. I… don’t get it.

  9. Funny, that’s what I used to call my ex…

  10. It’s insane, this guys taint.

  11. That’s some taint. Did they tickle it to defeat it? And did they have robot sex afterwards to celebrate?

  12. If I had a nickel for every time I flew head first into a wraith’s taint…

  13. That taint funny!

  14. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor.

  15. Oh ROM.

    Even with that questionable (highly questionable) panel right there, I still love you.

  16. I . . . I got nothin.  

  17. @bornln1142~  Taint is one of those words with lots of meanings…some more appropriate than others.  I suggest this link here to clear up confusion.

  18. Hey, question: Do robots have taints?

  19. @cromulent -thank you- I can’t stop giggling  like a heyena!

    side note:  can IFANboy exert some muscle and convince Marvel to put out a ROM Essentials??

  20. @jesse: ROM is my secret passion, but I don’t like your odds.

  21. @jmoorepeterson that is one of my favorite shows of all time. I used to have a Taint magazine t-shirt from that episode. 

  22. @Jimski- Regarding your first comment: REALLY!?!…that’s awesome

    I always see this series in back issue and dollar bins, but have never actually bought any.  If it’s really all like this, I have definitely been missing out. Based on this one panel alone I will be sure to pick up a few issues next time I come across any.

  23. By cROM!


  24. When I saw this, I knew I had to send it straight to iFanboy, for it includes my two greatest obessions:  Rom and taint.

    @jimski @jesse1125  Rom is never going to be collected, so I’m having my series custom bound by David Banks.

    In the time it took you to read this, Rom slew four Dire Wraiths.

  25. Taint Misbehavin.

    Taint Your Wagon.
