The authorized adaptation of three Ling Master stories by Blaster Al Ackerman, with art by E. J. Barnes:
- "Ask Ling: Two Parables": Two letters to the Ling Master prompt responses in the form of parables. It's up to you to figure out what it means — or whether Ling is just talking through his pillowcase.
- "The Squid Boys of Terre Haute": Close Encounters of the Third Grade! A mysterious letter from a gifted young poet leads the Ling Master on a trail that turns on the question: Do the Old Ones have their own comic books? A must for the H. P. Lovecraft knock-off completist.
- "The Blue Catfish": A Ling yarn described by Blaster himself as "abject jungle faddle". Ling's friend Frenchy finds himself caught in a harrowing trap of mad science. What follows may shock even the most jaded Ling fan!
