Synopsis for The Spectre: "Spiezel"Edit

(adapted from plot summary at dcindexes.com)
Farmer Hiram Spiezel uncovers a mysterious jar on his farm. When he opens the jar an ancient evil entity is released, which then takes control of Spiezel. Possessed, Spiezel begins a business empire by profiting on the misery of others. The Spectre tries to influence Spiezel, but finds that his powers do not work.

Spectre is forced to deal with Spiezel indirectly by stopping his business schemes. Spiezel eventually realizes that someone is interfering and discovers that Spectre is involved.

The Spectre then combats the entity possessing Spiezel on the spirit plane. He succeeds in trapping the entity back inside the jar. He then buries the jar on the ocean floor to prevent his escape. Spiezel, free of the entity, gives up his business and returns to the farm.

Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Forger"Edit

Fingers Beaumont, a master forger, begins a scheme to steal money from farmers by intercepting their bank statements. When Inza's grandparents are victimized she calls Doctor Fate for help.

Doctor Fate finds the crooks, but they use gas on him. His lungs are vulnerable, so he is knocked out. The crooks then try to dump his body, but when they take him outside he revives. Doctor Fate then goes after the crooks again. This time he is successful in apprehending them.

  • This is the first issue where Dr. Fate does not wear the Helmet of Nabu. He begins wearing a half-mask, and does not have access to the full bevy of his mystical powers. Diverging from the previous occult-related themes, the Dr. Fate stories adopt a more traditional super-hero style from this point forward.
