Friend of the Devil last edited by pikahyper on 07/21/19 06:47AM View full history

“WELCOME TO HAPPY HARBOR.” Just days ago, in the 853rd century (just trust us, it’s time-travel, okay?), Hourman handed the evil god known as the Undersoul his ultimate defeat. Now, back in the year 2000, the time-twisting android faces the human source of the enemy he’s just defeated: the leader of a murderous cult that’s abducted Hourman’s friend and mentor, Snapper Carr! Plus, learn the secrets of Hourman’s human identity, Matthew Tyler!

Continued from last issue. At first, Hourman and Bethany Lee do not realize that Snapper Carr is not with them. Snapper has been captured by retail demons, and is being tortured in a mall somewhere.

Hourman and Bethany return to Happy Harbor, where they try to enlist the aid of Bethany’s mother, police chief Andrea Lee. Both the chief and Officer Lenin refuse to help, mainly because of Bethany's budding romance with the android Hourman. Hourman comes up with an idea to rescue Snapper: he will disguise himself in his new secret identity as Matther Tyler and use himself as bait.

Hourman’s plan works, and he is grabbed by the Snatcher. We find out that the Snatcher and the demons work for the Undersoul, an arch-enemy of Hourman’s from another time. Hourman finds Snapper and defeats the Undersoul’s agent in charge of the snatching operation. Hourman brings Snapper home, but he is still near-catatonic from his torture at the hands of the demons.
