The trio all have their own personal battles to fight this issue and don’t all go as expected.

Crockett is trying to solve the case while high on drugs which would be difficult enough but throw in the fact that he deals with imaginary bad guys its damn near impossible. Each team member gets help from an unexpected source and Crockett could well be his very own imaginary friend just when he needs it, it could also just be the drugs but whatever it is it helps.

Melba is at the mercy of Fraidy Cat and her minions and looks to be lost as Fraidy Cat probes her to see if she will be good enough to feed from but again help arrives from someone you would never expect to help her and may not be the ‘hero’ she exactly needs right now

Polly is in a fight to the death with her ex-husband Charlie chokecherry and he seems to be getting the better of her in a brutal fight until she pulls the strength she needs from a surprise character and dare I say it even becomes a hero of the story,  there could be more to Polly than meets the eye

Another brilliant issue, its well written and the artwork is fantastic the imaginary beings are seriously scary and exactly the larger than life characters you would expect to haunt your childhood!

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
