Issue nine features one really good comic story and a couple of writings by Linsner and Monks. The writings highlight and foreshadow the issues that the pair had dealing with producing the comic as well as each other.

The main story within the issue is titled Angelique. The story explores relationships, death, suicide and satanic destiny by following two characters. David is a man who is a committed relationship. While out at a dinner with his significant other, David observes an attractive and dangerous appearing woman leaving the restaurant. Excusing himself, he quickly follows her and a one night stand takes place. As the woman undresses, David sees a strange scar along her throat. The two have other encounters until Angelique calls David at his home one night and demands to see him. Upon his arrival, David finds a man in a pentagram on Angelique's floor. At Angelique's request, David dismembers the body and dumps it along the highway. David wonders if the exercise is a test and confronts Angelique. After a struggle, the two fall to the floor and embrace.

Special Note:

On June 12, 1993 Linsner held a party at New York's Webster Hall to celebrate the launch of his solo endeavors with Sirus. Below is a signed invite from the event.
