Time for a wedding!  Brandy and Steve are ready to tie the knot yet she is having doubts for she does not know if she truly loves Steve fully or if she is starting to have deeper feelings for our robotic hero.  Rom meanwhile is having similar feelings for Brandy and when he finds she is not home there is nothing to do but go and crash the wedding.  Arriving there he finds the place stinks of Wraiths which is not good for anybody.  On the other side of town, Steve is finally able to break free of the Wraith prison with the reporter’s help and he races across town, making it to the church on time and by doing so finally justifying Rom’s mission on Earth.  Conflicted feelings abound in the latest issue by Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema.  Slowly but surely, Rom has been turning into an emotional mess as being around humans and their many different mental states is having an effect on him.  But like every other being in the universe, nobody wants to be alone and Rom thinks that he is in love with Brandy.  The sad thing is that there is nothing Rom can do about it as Steve is still in the picture, maybe more so now than ever before.  A little bit of action is peppered within which keeps the pace a little lively, and it was finally great to see Rom get a little peace of mind at least on one front.
