Do you take the adventure and go in, or continue on with your normal life?
Do you wave from the dream, or live in the nightmare?
Here are two more of Madame Xanadu's appearances in Doorway to Nightmare!
Blood Red Tear
Over time, and late night meals where only she ate, Margot began to fall for Victor, but she couldn't shake the feeling there was something off about the man who only appeared at night with the blood red eyes.
In the text page for the issue, more of the limitations of the length of the lives of vampires are discussed in an interview with a vampire....
Six Claws Of The Dragon
She also gave Nick the story of the Princess, and her six fingered hand, which held a jade jewel as she was mummified, and that someone had tried to take it years ago by cutting off the hand...yet the jade and hand had returned (though the wrist was now bloodied). Nick got a call of the murder of the Professor, and a possible link to the theft.
Getting no answers and leaving with the lamp, Nick went to Sue for answers, to find a birthmark around her wrist. Returning home, Nick was attacked by the mummified bodyguard, trying to get the lamp. Madame Xanadu stopped the mummy, and left, with Nick going back to the shop (and still getting no answers). Meeting with Sue, she proclaimed anger about her tomb being violated, but then went back to normal. Leaving Sue, it is revealed she is possessed by Princess Morea, who, with the help of Lady Karis, was gathering the lamps to permanently transfer the Princess' spirit into Sue's body.
This issue's text page covered how Karis and the Professor had their original plans to take the mummies and the jade, and how Lady Karis ended up dead and in service to the Princess.in the past, whether through a doorway or something more unexpected when the spirit moves me....
