“Marlene Whately, a witch, has kidnapped the familiar of her enemy, Phineas Evantide, the prince of warlocks. During a rant about the Ghostbusters stopping Astorath in the previous issues, the familiar, Tarantula, escapes and hitches a ride on a train. She knows the only way to get back to her master is to seek out the Ghostbusters Marlene mentioned. Unfortunately, the foes are not so quick to give up, and are ready to take the fight to New York!”
