"Moloch Most Haunted" Special #5
Special#5: "Moloch Most Haunted"
The gang discuss an old creepy house at the edge of Moloch Falls...
Notes and References:
This is the fifth of the final six special issues of Barnaby and Loaker.
The title of this issue is a reference to Most Haunted, a British paranormal reality television show. The progamme investigated purported paranormal activity around the United Kingdom. The issue is also inspired by the idea that most small towns having an old creepy house just on the edge of town.
The group have a discussion of about the house. Bancroft believes that Molochstein lives in the house. Molochstein was a troll like monster who first appeared in issue#54: "No Gremlin Is An Island". Barnaby corrects him by informing the group that Molochstein stayed in their shed for a time in issue#57: "The Monster at the End of the Garden" until issue#59: "Where The Wild Things Go".
Barnaby believes that the house is made up from the bones of Moloch's ancestors. Moloch was a giant monster who lived hundred of years ago and is the town's namesake. Interestingly, Barnaby and his brother Loaker are both distant descendants of Moloch.
Emily Hair continues to confuse and baffle the other members of the group by being obsessed with colour.
Feigenbaum is revealed to be the resident of the creepy old house. This is the first indication that Feigenbaum even requires a home as the character is at least partially imaginary.
