While I wait for ROM #4 to come through the mail, let me note that Nov. 9th is Wraith Birthday!
When the Wraiths came to Earth and began their undercover disguises, a large number of them, at least, created birth certificates. At some point---I believe it's #9, on loan at present---a reporter uncovers this common date among every one apparently "slain" by Rom (who's banishing them, natch). In fact, it's Nov. 9, 1951 if I recall correctly---and why wouldn't that also be the birthday for writer Bill Mantlo?
So---Happy Birthday, Bill Mantlo!!
