Johnny, although a learned gentleman, could not read
the future, so he did not know how mistaken he was. For there was a new
mystery awaiting them in America, one that was to make this enigma of The
Thousand-headed Man dwindle to smallness in Johnny's mind.

less than a minute later, it would take another-dozens of miles distant.
Violence, terror and mystery was to mark each minute
of Doc's combat with The Squeaking Goblin. And a mountain feud involving
hundreds of embittered families was to complicate the bronze man's fight
against his eerie foe. Blissfully unaware of all that, Johnny
clambered into the plane. Monk tossed in his pet pig, Habeas Corpus. The
others loaded aboard, engines were started and they got the plane off.
