I'm at home looking over the portfolio of a male babysitter. I'm pretty impressed by the drawings and comic sketches and would like to work with him on a comic strip. When I approach the (female) artist and suggest working together on a comic strip, she is excited and suggests a western like Rawhide. "I was thinking more like something funny & political, somewhere between Calvin & Hobbes & Doonesbury." I suggest. She looks skeptical and asks how political it will be, "birth control and everything?" she asks. I tell her it won't be THAT political. She goes outside to smoke and I want to keep talking to her but she won't open the window so we can hear each other.

I'm in a warehouse building investigating the deaths/disappearances of several people. I suspect there's some supernatural thing happening inside as I pursue some suspects. A young woman enters a class room just as I'm frantically packing up to leave. She asks me about Amy Sohner and I tell her that I'm trying to find out how she disappeared. I point to a single rain boot that belonged to her and run out of the room.

I run out onto a fire escape and see a woman fleeing. As I leap down to the street, she fires at me and I return fire, hitting her twice in the chest. She goes down and I run to her, laying myself on top of her. She's not wounded and pulls a scarf/blanket from inside her coat & complains to me about it being damaged. I lay on top of her and look back toward the building. Several armed people are approaching and I realize they're my back-up.
