Crossover Cover: Contact High (Verse-Chorus-Verse)


In this story by Joseph Lamere, the Lemon Herberts, a pop band who keep getting into adventures, disrupt a black magic rite by a rival band’s manager, Lester Wicked. Decades later, Wicked attempts to finish what he started. In 1967, the Lemon Herberts perform at the Catacombs underneath the Paris Opera House, which rumor has it a Phantom once haunted. In the twenty-first century, FBI agent Dell tells Dilly Button, the Herberts’ former rhythm guitar player, “This case just keeps getting weirder and weirder all the time. There used to be this guy at the Bureau, this guy named Fox, and...” Dilly says he met Fox once in the 1980s. The Phantom is Erik from Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera. Fox is Fox Mulder of The X-Files fame. Both these references bring the Lemon Herberts, created by Jim Beard, into the CU.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
