Crisis at the Crossroads of Infinity
By Bobby Nash
Several years ago AC
Comics, one of the longest running independent comics companies in the country,
joined forces with New Pulp publisher Pro-Se Press to produce several novels
based on their colorful comic book characters. Writer Bobby Nash immediately
signed on to write a book featuring AC’s female sorceress, Nightveil. The end
result was “Nightveil – Crisis at the Crossings of Infinity.”
The adventure opens
at a nexus point where all dimensions meet. There an obsessed Nightveil is
battling another Nightveil from another world. Believing her world is being
slowly destroyed by the creation of multiple worlds, this one time hero is now
bent on eliminating all her doppelgangers. The opening chapter is a fierce encounter
played out against the backdrop of infinity. Soon the world known as Wastelands
is littered with the bodies of fallen Nightveils.
At which point Laura
Wright, our world’s own Nightveil, becomes aware of this threat and nearly
becomes the evil sorceress’ next victim. Realizing she cannot defeat the crazed
Nightveil alone, Laura devises a plan to recruit other Nightveils and heroes
from the myriad dimensions to help save infinity. All of which culminates in a
cosmic encounter overseen by a powerful entity with the ability to change
reality as we know it.
In reading this fast
paced adventure, we were impressed with Nash’s ability to write all the various
incarnations of the same person. He expertly moves from scene to scene and we
are never once confused as to who’s who. In the end, the adventure works
brilliantly and wraps with a satisfying climax.
In 2019 “Nightveil – Crisis at the Crossroads of Infinity” won the Pulp Factory Award for Best Novel; an award it totally merited.
