Number 1748: Meandering through the mists of midnight
Young lovers Neil and Audrey are out for an evening, and walking in the creepy swamp where they had their first date. (Neil must be pretty cheap.) Little do they know that Audrey is about to become a target of some malevolent beings who want to drag her into the “ectosphere.” I’m not sure where the ectosphere is, but I’ll stay away from it, if you don’t mind. No wonder, when explaining what she saw in the swamp, her boyfriend thinks she is in need of some serious help. No wonder her boss has to fire her because she can’t keep her mind on her job while worrying about the supernatural beings after her.
This is an ACG story, so love conquers all. (Gosh, I hope that doesn’t ruin it for you.) To protect Audrey’s reputation Neil has prepared a white lie to tell her boss, which is what ends this little opus from Forbidden Worlds #2 (1951). The lie story is well illustrated by Lin Streeter.
