Against his grandfather’s dying wish, Finn has resurrected <I>Toy Shop</I>, adding new characters, and the strip is more popular than ever, bringing in fan letters, merchandising deals, and talk of TV specials. Finn has even started dating again.<BR><BR>When a terrorist attack decimates Atlanta, killing half a million souls, Finn begins blurting things in a strange voice beyond his control.

And Grandpa isn’t terribly happy about the changes Finn has been making to <I>Toy Shop</I>. Together with a pair of possessed friends, an aging rock star, and a waitress, Finn races against time to find a way to send the dead back to Deadland... or die trying!</DIV>
