Michael has the best job in the world. Not only does he get paid to play video games, but he also gets to test new games before they hit the open market. When the International entertainment giant, Brain Thrust, approaches him with an offer to test a cerebral chip for transmitting data directly into the human brain that enables a person to play video games in which they smell, taste and perhaps even feel things, it is an offer he can’t refuse. But when the line between reality and the game begin to blur and people start dying, Michael finds himself at the center of a terrifying conspiracy. Psychotic Reaction is a horror tale in the tradition of Philip K. Dick and H.P. Lovecraft, written by (Jonah Hex) Justin Gray!

color, 64 pages, $6.50
Dawidziak, Gentile, Nieves, Ulanski, Hudson, Harris, & Williams
A very special event, and a story Kolchak fans have dreamed of for decades… KOLCHAK vs BARNABAS?
Carl Kolchak meets DARK SHADOWS’ Barnabas Collins in a tale we could only call “An Interview with the Vampire!” Why has this famous vampire sent for a reporter well-known for slaying vampires?
Then, past Kolchak writers Gentile and Ulanski co-write together for the first time a new full-length Kolchak story! In “One Foot in the Grave,” Kolchak and Vincenzo are on a road trip through the Nevada desert, and find a graveyard of human bones. But what menace is looking to add them to it?
Two terrifying Night Stalker tales so monumental, it takes a 64-page special to contain them!
