*Cathedral City as just witnessed the emergence of the New Year. While most communities are rejoicing in the hopes that this new year brings, Cathedralites are living in fear. A monster is loose in their city. A monster whose heart is as black as the Cathedral night. The press have dubbed him "The Mortician" because he embalms his victims. The people are terrified and a curfew has been imposed. Both local police and S.P.L.A.T.T. team, a private police force, are baffled. As if that weren't enough, reports are flowing in from all over the city of a giant "Flea-Creature" that is devouring Cathedral's criminal element. Is this creature friend or just another reason to relocate your family? *Source: Inside Front Cover.
