In this second issue of the Wolff & Byrd/Supernatural Law series, Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd encounter the "Curse of the Werehouse!" Tom and Kim Curtis live in a house that becomes haunted every full moon. Tom's former boos sues when the house "assaults" him after he comes to dinner. Tom is a skeptic who pooh-poohs supernatural explanations for the haunted house. Kim calls Jeff Byrd because they used to work together in Chase Hawkins' office early in Jeff's career; he had a crush on her, which is rekindled during this case. Nosey neighbors report the strange goings-on at the Curtis house to the authorities, and it isn't too long before the Bureau of Firearms and Drugs (BFD) gets into the act-just in time for the next full moon.

This is the first W and B issue to consist of several short stories. In 'The Zombies Strike at Midnight,' the owner of a novelty company goes into Wade's Haitian Hut, a bar near the courthouse, and complains about the fact that the zombies he employs to make his specialty voodoo dolls have gone on strike; the zombies of course are represented by W&B. In 'Court of Public Opinion,' Sodd is back as jury selection is under way. On the courtroom steps, the press abandon W and B and Sodd when they spot attorney Chase Hawkins and his client, supermodel Dawn Devine. In 'Mavis,' the secretary ventures out onto the street to find that the real world can be scarier than the firm's monster-filled offices. In 'Things That Go Bump In The Night,' it's just Jeff and Alanna alone in the office in the wee hours. Finally, in 'The Man Who Broke The Laws of Gravity (and Landed in Court),' W and B represent Lowell M. Rose, a consultant to Blackwood Museum who translates an ancient Tibetan scroll on levitation and finds himself up in the air; he sues when the museum fires him.

This issue: 'A Host of Horrors!' The Bier-Meister is a 1950s-style horror host whose career is revived as a host for a special on the Eek! Channel (EC) all-horror network. Arrested for graverobbing in an incident involving the grave of Dr. Forrest Bertrum, "Bierie" is exonerated but then loses the hosting job due to pressure on the network from a parents' group, the Children's Movement Activist Association. W&B represent the Bier-Meister's suit against a local county for banning EC network, raising the issue of free speech versus "protecting the children." Meanwhile, Sodd signs a deal for British horror novelist Niles Pib (based on Neil Gaiman) to write his life story.

In "The Model Client," Dawn DeVine is a supermodel trying to get out of her contract with the Greatbody Agency and its Svengali-like owner, Jake Panache. She's been having an affair with her attorney, Chase Hawkins, who says he can no longer represent her because of the conflict of interest. So why does he refer her to Wolff & Byrd? Let's just say some magic spells are involved, and Dawn winds up in a condition that makes it impossible for her to keep modeling. The plot twists and turns before reaching its "fairy tale" ending.

This issue: 'It Stalks the Public Domain!' Al Lampini, proprietor of a traveling Chamber of Horrors, claims to have in his show the original Frankenstein monster, Dracula's remains, and a wolf-man. He consults attorney Mel Gaffe because of competition from other exhibitors, such as Dr. Hammer's House of Horrors, who also say they have these same monsters. To give his show an edge, Lampini brings Dracula back to life, then takes him to Gaffe, who quickly refers the count to W&B. Their task is to document that he is the real and original Dracula. Of course, that is obvious to all the other monsters, who are compelled to come to where Dracula is, creating a mob of vampires, wolf-men, and stitched-together monsters all heading to Lampini's carnival grounds near Greenwich Village and a final showdown.
