  1. Fell Clutch of Circumstance

    • Issue number: 1
    • Date: December, 2005
    • Summary: A self-admitted killer laments over the body of his victim, a nude woman impaled upon a curious sword. The police close in on the dark, muggy lowcountry warehouse that is the scene of the crime. It seems that it is only a matter of time before the killer is apprehended.

      Author’s note: I am including this issue for historical purposes. I consider it apocryphal/non-canon. The story has diverged from what I originally conceived in 2004, and I don’t like that the issue starts right off with a “fridging”.

    • Summary: Holt and Nachtmann have acquired a strange map that Holt is drawn to despite Nachtmann’s protestations that it is likely garbage sent to him by his colleague Gaston Vruk.

It seems there may be something to the map after all…
