Zero, Ghost Detective. “On the 77th floor of a towering skyscraper, Zero wages a war against the criminal denizens of the phantom realm.” Zero is an occult detective, although a modern, business-like one who conducts himself like a private detective. His enemies are always supernatural–he only handles supernatural cases–and he uses his wits, spells, and weapons against them, including stakes and a cross-marked mirror. He fights ghosts, zombies, skeletal revenants, priests of Moloch, and Death Itself. Zero appears in stories with titles like “The Hand of Rutatutakhmen,” “The Werewolf,” and “The Death Emerald.”
