Original design sketch for IDW Rom villain Axiom revealed
IDW artist Ron Joseph, known for his work on Revolutionaries, Micronauts: Wrath of Karza and (of course) ROM, has shown off his original design for the monstrous Dire Wraith hybrid Axiom on Twitter. Check it out below!
Axiom went through quite a few incarnations before @chris_ryall and I settled on the design that saw print. Thought you might like a peek at the very first sketch I did…much more monstrous and Hulk-like… pic.twitter.com/BtOktUqyOE

Axiom, who debuted in 2016’s ROM: Revolution, sports a slender, Xenomorph-esque design that’s a far cry from the hulking, Kilowog-like brute of the original sketch – though it should be noted that the character’s design hasn’t been particularly consistent over the course of IDW’s ROM, sporting unique features in Revolution and Rom & the Micronauts.
