From adapter and illustrator Gou Tanabe, comes H.P Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness. This manga adaptation of some of Lovecraft's best stories is perfect for manga fans and Lovecraft fans alike. With art resembling more of a western comic book, this book lends itself well as a 'gateway' for those who are looking to get into manga! January 25, 1931: an expedition team arrives at a campsite in Antarctica...to find its crew of men and sled dogs strewn and dead. Some are hideously mangled, as if in rage--some have been dissected in a curious and cold-blooded manner. Some are missing. But a still more horrific sight is the star-shaped mound of snow nearby...for under its five points is a grave--and what lies beneath is not human! At the Mountains of Madness is a journey into the core of Lovecraft's mythos--the deep caverns and even deeper time of the inhospitable continent where the secret history of our planet is preserved--amidst the ruins of its first civilization, built by the alien Elder Things with the help of their bioengineered monstrosities, the shoggoths. Since it was first published in Astounding Stories during the classic pulp era, At the Mountains of Madness has influenced both horror and science fiction worldwide!

Wolff & Byrd are in Los Angeles to negotiate his contract, and they are worried about the naivety of their client. Chris takes young starlet Amber out to a swanky place for dinner, where he receives a cryptic warning from a mysterious waiter. When Amber’s body is found in the ladies’ room with two puncture wounds to the neck, Chris panics and flees the scene by stealing a car from the valet.

While in Los Angeles, Wolff & Byrd are asked by old college friend Reuben Chaver to serve as co-counsel in a case involving a haunted house. They are representing Cindy Schneider, a realtor who sold an expensive old Hollywood mansion to nouveau riche movie producers Frank Furlan and Gill Paggio, whose big success is the low-budget slasher film Flayed. The two men are alleging that Cindy misrepresented the house as being haunted by movie great Bennett Shawn, who originally owned the house and had died in it back in 1953. They say there is indeed a ghost, but it’s not Shawn, and they feel ripped off. Interspersed in the issue are four different representations of “Wolff & Byrd: The Movie,” all based on true pitches Batton received from Hollywood executives. Note: The movie sequences were drawn by Russell Calabrese, Trevor Nielson, and Melissa Uran. Pinup art was provided by Bill Galvan, Pat Lewis, Dave Garcia, and Mark Wheatley.

The back story of Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd finally revealed in this special one-shot! Jeff Byrd and Alanna Wolff are first-year students at Kings County Law School. They meet in Professor Bainbridge's property law class. Jeff invites Alanna to join his study group, where she tells everyone that the field of law she wants to specialize in is-the supernatural ("Hey, somebody's got to defend them!"). When Professor Bainbridge takes on a client being sued over selling a "haunted" house, he asks Alanna to be one of the students on his team (since he's learned that her father is a judge). The students find out that the property is indeed haunted, by ghostly couple Ned and Noel Thorne. The professor uses the information to present his case. Although Wolff & Byrd part ways from law school, they eventually work together again on a case, which results in Byrd joining Wolff's firm. And as the firm gain notoriety in handling supernatural clients, Professor Bainbridge must endure questions from students who know he was W&B's teacher. We then cut to the present day, and suddenly Professor Bainbridge has need of Wolff & Byrd's services.
