    Summary

    Sandman's seventh story, "Sandman Meets the Face," was published in "Adventure Comics," Issue #45, in November of 1939. This story features the appearance of villain, "the Face"; an antagonist--much like "the Mist" for the Golden Age "Starman"--that was retroactively made into an archnemesis for his story's hero, nearly fifty years after his creation. This change was established in "Sandman Mystery Theatre"'s second story-arc, called simply, "The Face," starting with Sandman Mystery Theatre, Issue #5, in August of 1993.

    "The Face," or just "Face," was created by Gardner Fox and Creig Flessel. However, that version is mostly a blank slate; the adaptation of that one-off character--featured in Sandman Mystery Theatre and created by Matt Wagner and John Watkiss--is the template which this story will be using as a base.

    Like "Territorial Tarantula," this story is a composite adaptation of the Golden Age story ("Sandman Meets the Face") and Wagner's story ("The Face"), plus some ideas of my own.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Summary

    "Ill!" Uncle Wainwright snorted. "Yes, that's one way of putting it. He did this to himself, young lady. Don't waste your pity on him."

    "Oh, goodness," Margo said, as if dismayed. "Well! In that case, I shall be terribly hard on him."

    Summary

    Lamont gasps awake and his head jerks upright. It takes a minute for his eyes to adjust to his surroundings, and even then it isn’t much. A dark room, some damp, gloomy light filtering through a missing tile in the ceiling. He tries to move, but finds his ankles are restrained with heavy chains. There's something around his throat, tight, heavy and solid, only just allowing him to breathe. A collar? ... What the hell?

    Summary

    Love, someone once told Margo Lane, is never having to say you're sorry. In her case, a better definition might be "love is never having to explain."

    Summary

    The Shadow and Superman are opposites. They are not friends, they are not enemies, they do not live in the same worlds.
    This is intended to explore a bit of what dynamic they could have, what kind of circumstances they could meet under, and what sort of dynamic they could have, if aware of each other's existence.

    Summary

    The Shadow takes a vacation with Margo Lane, who needs some healing. Well, at least he was intending to take a vacation. But the Shadow is a "strange attractor" if ever there was one and mysteries just ride up unbidden out of the mist.

    This story continues with characters introduced in The Star in the Well - Part 1 although reading that tale is not a prerequisite for this one.
