Prepare for a new hero. A hero that has tasted the stench of evil’s darkness yet has also touched the goodness in men’s hearts. A hero that rewards as well as punishes. A hero that battles street crimes as well as that which crosses supernatural dimensions. The hero is NIGHTLINGER and the shadows are his domain. And joining him is his sexy female assistant, Mike who keeps Nightlinger embedded in the realm of humanity. From one troubled person to the next the plain black business cards with the gold lettering are passed. "I had a problem like yours once," the donor confesses. "This card got me out of it." There is only an address on the card, to the Haunted Bookshop in Minneapolis, where a fat man named Stick sits behind the counter. This fat man will patiently listen to your tale of woe, may even ask you a question or two, but in the end all he will do is wish you well, leaving you nothing to do except to go home. Sometimes nothing happens to rectify a problem; more often than not, the predicament is resolved. Permanently. In the latter case a letter appears in your mail requesting a small donation to support the Haunted Bookshop. Most folks are only too happy to comply. THIS ISSUE: "The Ivory Jabberwocky" A primordial evil threatens the Theobalds of Arkham, MA. All seems lost until a friend gives the family a black business card. “These folks helped me. Maybe they can help you.” In answer to the Theobalds’ call and arriving on the scene to investigate are the masked mystery man Feril Nightlinger and his eye-popping lethal assistant Mike Segretto. Evil is surely in trouble. “[Feril Nightlinger and Mike Segretto] investigate the paranormal. No, that’s not quite right: they get in the paranormal’s face!”- Atomic Avenue.
