While in Los Angeles, Wolff & Byrd are asked by old college friend Reuben Chaver to serve as co-counsel in a case involving a haunted house. They are representing Cindy Schneider, a realtor who sold an expensive old Hollywood mansion to nouveau riche movie producers Frank Furlan and Gill Paggio, whose big success is the low-budget slasher film Flayed. The two men are alleging that Cindy misrepresented the house as being haunted by movie great Bennett Shawn, who originally owned the house and had died in it back in 1953. They say there is indeed a ghost, but it’s not Shawn, and they feel ripped off. Interspersed in the issue are four different representations of “Wolff & Byrd: The Movie,” all based on true pitches Batton received from Hollywood executives.
Note: The movie sequences were drawn by Russell Calabrese, Trevor Nielson, and Melissa Uran. Pinup art was provided by Bill Galvan, Pat Lewis, Dave Garcia, and Mark Wheatley.
