Dr. Nekros: The Depths of Fate (Volume III, Episode II)

For better or for worse, without Crispin Vadenburgh, Mardella Webb, and George Vadenburgh, there would be no Dr. Nekros. The brothers and the enchantress tormented each other over the span of decades, and all three no longer exist as they did in 1923, yet their final fates have never been revealed … until now. Their story is full of revenge, sacrifice, tragedy, and, in the end, love.

I do hope you’ll give the latest installment of the Dr. Nekros saga a read.  Only four episodes left until the story’s end!
