Poe Toad’s last memory: You are having a good time grabbing deals at a late night sale at Alliance comics. Unbelievable prices are keeping your attention and focus in one place. As you dig through the racks you notice a strange man peering in at you from the outside. He has a bald head, some type of tattoos running up his neck and must disturbing of all, a scar running from his right-eye to what is left of his ear. You look away from him and then back up, but he is gone. You go back to bothering the comic book store owner and shopping. When the sale ends, you grab your bags and exit the store, excited that you were able to grab a rare copy of The Adventures of Apollo Cruz: Wrestling Hero #12, which is the first appearance of Apollo’s nemesis, Tony Toe-Baller. Your mind on your comics, you didn’t notice the shadowy figure rising from the alley. You almost didn’t have time to spot the bald head. Unfortunately, you didn’t have time to stop his attack. The blow left you dizzy and then left you in… Darkness.
