"Chapter 1: Outrageous Slings and Arrows"
*Seemingly ordinary Kevin Matchstick has a encounter with a man in the street, which turns out to be anything but chance. This mystical being, named Mirth, bestows upon Kevin magical powers, unbeknownst to Kevin, then disappears. Kevin then has the opportunity to stop a mugging, but the assailant turns out to be a monster known as a Grackleflint, and highly deadly. Kevin surprisingly holds his own, and Mirth later returns to let Kevin know he has a destiny combating this evil. Kevin is disbelieving, but later, more Grackleflints descend to confirm Mirth's story. *Source: Warlock
