Reston Dane (The Rook) a traveler through time and space
is drawn to a universe and an Earth by a powerful evil presence
- the personification of Chaos.
On Earth, Vampirella and the Danse Macabre interrupt a mass sacrifice
to Chaos and learn of Chaos' plans to conquer the planet.
On another Earth, Chaos' minions have used Vampirella to be the
mother of the Chaoschild, who now rules the planet in a grip of
terror. Adam van Helsing and compatriots ambush some of Chaos' minions,
meeting the Rook in the process.
The Rook uses his time/space traveling abilities to come to our
Earth and the Danse Macabre's headquarters to get Vampirella ...
Stunning artwork, and a great (though confusing at first)
story. It takes a while to realise that the story is working on
two different Earths, this one and an alternative universe Earth
ruled by the Chaoschild.
Once you have realised that there are two distinct stories running
simultaneously it all makes sense.
