Sam Gavel is a private detective who chased a crook into a chemical warehouse that exploded. But he survived! The exposure of experimental chemicals gave him the power to transform from a man of flesh and blood into a plume of living smoke.
In “Fuel of Fools” Sam tries to find out just what was in that factory that caused his transformation and stumbles upon a tale of espionage and conspiracy.
I hope that Sam will return in a future story because it’s so fun writing in a homage to both film noir and early pulp superhero comics, a dash of Hammett and Chandler with a touch of The Spirit.
