The Mystic Miss of the Femforce, Nightveil returns to appear in her own solo adventures in this great initial issue of the second volume of her own comic book series to accompany her adventures in the regular Femforce title. First, a visit to pay respects to the dearly departed erupts into pitched battle with the hideous demon known as Rakmathon, in “A visit to Old Friends”, written by Paul Melette with art by Shawn Surface. Then, Nightveil and Synn must brave the maddening realm of The Limbo Void to return the Prima Gem to safety, and thwart the designs of Alizarin Crimson once and for all in a story that picks up where Femforce #116 left off, and leads in to what is yet to come in Femforce #123. Art and story by Bill Black. Then, a special return feature- “For the Sake of What Should Have Been”, (originally seen in the now-completely-sold-out Femforce Up Close #1) Back in 1992, a still-unstable Synn looked to be a threat to all those around her, but when the government takes steps to place her under wraps, Nightveil risks all to help her remain free. Story and inks by Mark Heike, pencils by Dave Roberts. Black and white with color covers, 36 pages, 6 1/8″ X 10″, printed in 2003

ALL COLOR!!! Born to wealthy parents, Laura Wright enjoyed the easy life of a young socialite- until the onset of World War II. Her involvement with and apparent death of a young government espionage agent inspired her to adopt costume and mask as The Blue Bulleteer ,( Heavily influenced by actual Fox Features Golden Age character, The Phnatom Lady.) and fight the foes of democracy. Years later, at age 40, Laura was all but finished as a crime-fighter, when her life was altered by thr quasi-dimensional being known as Azagoth. She would train for years in the arcane arts, have her youth restored, and return as …Nightveil, Sorceress Supreme !! One of AC’s most popular protagonists, and a future member of both the Sentinels Of Justice and the Femforce, she is actually the continuation of the PL character publisher Bill Black used for years in his successful Paragon Pubs line of black and white magazines.

People in the know realize that before there was a FEMFORCE, before even there was an AC COMICS, there was PARAGON PUBLICATIONS- AC Comics Publisher Bill Black’s line of high-quality, original-material comic book-style magazines. This was the testing place, the proving ground, for all of Bill’s ideas, characters and techniques. In fact, many of the characters who would become memberes of the FEMFORCE first appeared in print in this line of books; some dating to the early 1970’s. Though the actual original PARAGON editions are long out of print, and expensive collector’s items (when you can FIND them ) , this anthology collects some of the best-remembered stories that featured future FEMFORCE members, including “Synn Meets Alizarin Crimson” (part of the ORIGINAL “Capricorn Chronicles” ), Phantom Lady (later changed to Nightveil) in “Dweller In The Darkness”, and SYNN & PHANTOM (Nightveil) LADY in “Carnage On Campus”, all stories written AND drawn by Bill Black himself!! 24 pages, black & white with black, white & red cover, 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″, saddle stitched; printed in 1996.
