Synopsis

TV legend. Wall Street wolf. Internet mogul. Tabloid bad boy. Master metaphysicist. Spiritualist. Monster hunter. Doctor Adam Spektor is all of these things... and less. For fifteen years, Spektor has traveled the globe to smoke out and defeat werewolves, vampires, ghosts, and everything else that goes bump in the night... and yet, his success has brought him no peace. Some part of him is missing, something he needs but can't name. But he's about to find what's missing in an unlikely place. A supernatural thriller that shatters all realities, courtesy of award-winning author Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, Daredevil, Indestructible Hulk)! Mark Waid Writer Commentary: "This project is a blast. It plays into all the non-superhero things that interest me - magic, performance, celebrity culture, and the pressures one feels under the public spotlight. Doctor Spektor is a pop-culture illusionist who's half Criss Angel, half Van Helsing - a demon hunter who has turned vampire-and-werewolf-and-zombie killing into a reality show. Now he's finally found something that scares even him - and the world watches him crumble when he tries to confront it. Can he redeem himself in the public eye, and in his own?" Includes the complete story arc from issues #1-4 of the Doctor Spektor comic book series, a complete cover gallery (featuring dozens of pin-ups), plus the complete Mark Waid script of the first chapter.
