a story that has some of the greatest minds on the time….Arthur Conan Doyle,
Harry Houdini, Nikola Tesla, H.G. Wells, and more to solve the mystery of who
killed Edgar Allen Poe. The fourth story is a conspiracy laded saga that
reaches into the connections between the death of Marilyn Monroe and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Writer Gary Reed is joined by artists
