Midnight Mystery

Plot

Complete stories each with their own title,  most of the stories were reprinted Damian Darke stories (from Spellbound). The stories were edited so the storyteller was taken out. Some other changes were made such as in “A Spoonful of Evil” the deadly spoon is the fourth in the set, but in the Nikki reprint it was the last deadly spoon and the story was renamed “The Twelfth Spoon”. For more details look at the Damian Darke entry. There was one longer Midnight Mystery (lasting 12 issues) about an evil ventriloquist’s dummy, who had children under his control so they could bring chaos to the town.
