Nightveil Book Review By Ron Fortier

NIGHTVEIL
Crisis at the Crossroads of Infinity
By Bobby Nash
Pro-Se Press
171 pgs

Several years ago AC Comics, one of the longest-running independent comics companies in the country, joined forces with New Pulp publisher Pro-Se Press to produce several novels based on their colorful comic book characters. Writer Bobby Nash immediately signed on to write a book featuring AC’s female sorceress, Nightveil. The end result was “Nightveil – Crisis at the Crossings of Infinity.”

The adventure opens at a nexus point where all dimensions meet. There an obsessed Nightveil is battling another Nightveil from another world. Believing her world is being slowly destroyed by the creation of multiple worlds, this one-time hero is now bent on eliminating all her doppelgangers. The opening chapter is a fierce encounter played out against the backdrop of infinity. Soon the world known as Wastelands is littered with the bodies of fallen Nightveils.

At this point, Laura Wright, our world’s own Nightveil, becomes aware of this threat and nearly becomes the evil sorceress’s next victim. Realizing she cannot defeat the crazed Nightveil alone, Laura devises a plan to recruit other Nightveils and heroes from myriad dimensions to help save infinity. All of this culminates in a cosmic encounter overseen by a powerful entity with the ability to change reality as we know it.

In reading this fast-paced adventure, we were impressed with Nash’s ability to write all the various incarnations of the same person. He expertly moves from scene to scene and we are never once confused as to who’s who. Ultimately, the adventure works brilliantly and wraps with a satisfying climax.

In 2019 “Nightveil – Crisis at the Crossroads of Infinity” won the Pulp Factory Award for Best Novel; an award it totally merited.
