Manhattan Ghosts

Manhattan Ghosts / Alfredo Castelli, script ; Giancarlo Alessandrini, art ; Hazim Kacic, translation ; Reed Chaval, dialogue -- Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Comics, 1999. -- (Martin Mystery ; 4) -- Note: Diana seems to be Martin's girlfriend; reference is made to the Excalibur case. -- 148 p. -- Call no.: PN6768.M3313 1999 v.4

Summary: An inventor named Mr. Henry has been working at the intersection of magic and electronics, and has come up with a flat-screen television which gets all channels, plus opens a gateway to another dimension. Later in the story he compares his work to a fortuneteller's crystal ball, the magic mirror in Snow White, and an animated golem. His patent application is denied on the basis of his technical drawings, although the set functions perfectly as a TV. Next a man named Tom Jones comes to visit Martin Mystery. His girlfriend Janet has disappeared, and he thinks it has to do with a strange television set from a junk shop. Martin doesn't take it seriously until he notices Jones's address, which is in the same building in which he had to put down an outbreak of unfriendly cartoon character poltergeists sometime earlier. Characters shown in the flashback include Mr. Clean, Popeye, and Pac-Man. Mystery tries to contact Jones, but is unable to do so. That night, during a broadcast re-run of Ghostbusters, Diana sees Mr. Jones walking across the screen during a commercial. Martin, Diana and Java visit Jones's apartment. He isn't there, though the mysterious TV set is sitting there tuned to static. Martin turns the set off and takes it with him. Fooling around with the static channel, they briefly see Jones calling for help. Next we see Mr. Henry, in a new apartment, completing his latest invention, a personal computer. In it he has programmed a game, "Henry vs. the Patent Office People." The game works well until the villains, walking in lines like Space Invaders, cross the dimensional barrier, blow up his apartment, and almost kill Henry. Martin finds Henry in the hospital, and while Henry is explaining, a full-scale invasion of Manhattan by Space Invaders type ships begins. Machines of all types stop working or become hostile to humans. The invasion proceeds to the hospital and zaps Henry and Mystery into the other dimension. In the other dimension, Martin and the inventor meet up with Tom and Janet. Tom Jones has figured out how to move around in the dimension, which works on principles described by Edwin Abbott in his book Flatland. It's like a book, and they can punch their way to previous or later pages. They manage to find the page where Tom appeared on network TV, and hold up a sign for Diana and Java, asking them to tune Henry's strange set to the static channel so they can escape. It begins to work, but they are pursued by the patent office characters. Martin pulls out his ray gun and begins to zap back at them, and a big scoreboard in the sky shows the game to all Manhattan: Invaders vs. Terrestrials. Martin wins the game, and before it can reset they jump out of the television set and destroy it. They run to Henry's apartment, and Henry does an incantation to close the main gate between dimensions. A big sign glows in the sky for awhile: Game Over.
