Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult Volume 1

by Mark Waid

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 06/01/2015

 
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.
