Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia. These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.
THE OCCULT FILES OF DOCTOR SPEKTOR # 14 “THE NIGHT LAKOTA DIED” (GOLD KEY COMICS)
Release Date: June 1975 (Contemporary Setting)
Series: The Occult Files of Doctor Spektor
Horror Crosses: Donald F. Glut’s Interconnected Works
Non-Horror Crosses: Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom; Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD
The Story: Karena, agent of the Dark Gods, once again attacks Spektor, this time by controlling the super-hero Dr. Solar.
Notes: The Dark Gods are from Glut’s series of stories. Doctor Solar was another Gold Key character, whose series had ended. This was a way to give him an ending. This story brings in Dr. Solar, but not the later revival series Solar, Man of the Atom from Valiant. Solar says that he works for the government now, for a man named Nick. This is meant to be Nick Fury, which is confirmed in Doctor Spektor # 23. Nick Fury’s World War II era stories were brought in previously, and this story brings in his silver age adventures. As with all Marvel heroes, we must not use Nick to bring in other Marvel characters. We might wish to apply the reasoning that Marvel uses in that Nick had taken “the Infinity Formula” to maintain his youthfulness.
