And so it was …
That on the first day, Leonard Bliss unchained the hearts of men and fled the Afterlife . . .
That on the second day, free of his dominion, the human race sought to end poverty, disease and war. A rapture of love and understanding embraced the world, and mankind took its first steps toward an age of enlightenment and the Kingdom of Heaven.
And on the third day, Heaven looked down upon the Earth and saw that this would never do.
And so it was that on the fourth day, Heaven dispatched a celestial field agent to find Leonard Bliss and return him to the Hereafter.
And though mankind's destiny hung by a most delicate thread, Heaven chose to send Alfred Warr – the immortal coward and disgraced Horseman of the Apocalypse.
