The original 14-issue series NIGHT FORCE, written by comics icon Marv Wolfman (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, NEW TEEN TITANS) and pencilled by the equally legendary Gene Colan (BATMAN, Howard the Duck) is collected here for the first time, along with the characters’ first appearance from NEW TEEN TITANS.
In the oldest part of Washington, D.C., there sits a vast old mansion with a back door that opens to a small, ordinary garden—but not always. There are times when the garden simply isn’t there, and the door instead leads to eighteenth-century Paris, or feudal England, or a 1930s carnival.
Inside the house lives the reclusive, seemingly ageless aristocrat Baron Winters. He sits out of sight inside his mansion alongside his pet leopard, pulling the strings to bring together a handpicked team of extraordinary individuals—down-on-his-luck tabloid journalist Jack Gold, parapsychology researcher Donovan Caine, and Vanessa Van Helsing, granddaughter of Dracula’s greatest foe.
Known as the Night Force, the group fights evil wherever—and whenever—Baron Winters sends them.
