Letters Column: The Men who Make Stanley and His Monster
In a rare book-length adventure, Mitchell Dover, upon being hired by Davis Advertising Company, throws his old boss's birthday cake in his face in revenge for making him work on his 5th wedding anniversary, Stanley's birthday, etc (cf. issue #105), only to find that Mr. Davis cannot give him the promised job. The reason is because Fortley's Frozen Fish has gone with Burke and Hare's advertising because Fortley and Burke are Civil War hobbyists.
Sheila sends Stanley to return some eggs to Ms. Bohns, who is bawling her eyes out because her brother has disappeared for three days after doing his experiments. Stanley goes down to the lab and finds Prof. Bohns hiding from his sister in his experimental time machine because his invisibility experiments have worked only on his flesh, causing him to resemble a walking skeleton.
After hearing Sheila say that she would rather sell the house than have Mitchell crawling back to his old boss, Stanley resolves to sneak out with Spot, Schnitzel, Shaugnessy, and Napoleon's ghost, while Marcia, his babysitter, is on the phone, so that they can use the time machine to get a Civil War artifact so that his dad can get the Fortley account back.
Unfortunately, before they can get back to the 1860s, Ms. Bohns finds the machine and tries to turn it off, sending the group to 2100. Spot knows where a Civil War artifact can still be found, but it leads to a moral decision on Stanley's part...
