Issue(s): ROM #60
They discover a massacre.
There is only one survivor: a young girl named Cindy Adams. A Wraith was in mid-mindsuck when Cindy's mother cut off its tongue.
Cindy managed to survive (unlike her mother) but she now has prophetic visions where the Wraiths bring their Black Sun to our solar system. Oddly, Rick Jones has been having similar dreams.
Earlier issues of ROM benefited from the fact that Sal Buscema was doing some of his best work on them. Since Steve Ditko took over, the art hasn't been as good. But this issue is inked by Tom Palmer, and i really like it a lot.
There's a nostalgia factor, though. This was my first issue of ROM. It came in a 3-pack with two other books (Hulk #298 and something else, possibly Avengers #246). The creepy abilities of the Dire Wraiths really captured my imagination.
Starshine's powers are apparently such that she's able to hold off the Casket blizzard in the area immediately around her.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The snow storm has been going on for "nigh unto a week". I didn't realize it lasted that long, but to be safe i'm making this book the last of the Casket of Ancient Winters crossover books. Most of the book actually takes place "some days later" after the storm has passed and rescue workers can make it to the stranded train.
Crossover: Casket of Ancient Winters
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A

Mais, POURQUOI Tom Palmer ne fut pas l'encreur officiel pour le reste misérable de cette série reprise par un dessinateur, Steve Ditko, peut-être valable dans les années 60, mais après...
