At the Tree of Wonder John and Swamp Thing confront Doctor Fate/Nabu, who has senses the others departure to Myrra. As they fight Phantom Stranger arrives on the scene and tells Fate they need to talk.

Meanwhile having arrived in Myrra they suddenly hear Bobo arrive behind them after he has a change of heart. He is justin time to join them in fighting off a fire-breathing dragon and dozens of zombie soldiers.
