Agent Franks of the Monster Control Bureau, a Frankenstein monster built by the alchemist Johann Dippel, battles a cult trying to raise an Old One off the coast of California. Some of the cultists are Deep One hybrids. There is a reference to shoggoths. Special Task Force Unicorn has access to a werewolf disabling poison made from a rare plant that only blooms on out of the way mountains under a full moon. Johann Dippel is an historic figure who has been identified as an ancestor of the Frankenstein family in several sources. The Old Ones, the Deep Ones, and the Shoggoths are from the works of H. P. Lovecraft. The rare plant is the Mariphasa plant from the movie Werewolf of London.
