From the zine's introduction:

COMING OUT OF THE DARK is a story of life as it IS; with all the pain, the joy, as well as the passion. You will find humor in this book, hopefully, as well as romance. And a resolution of a long ago, bitter hurt done to Vincent and Catherine. We hope to unfold for you a journey into a world we have all come to love. A world we wish could BE, in a life that should have been lived with happiness and never was. Here in these pages, we attempt to give that life -- BACK. COMING OUT OF THE DARK is a tale of love and torment, delight and sorrow. Come -- share the wonder and all the magic with us.

The Legend endures. The dream shall never die.

Reactions and Reviews

This short novel, second in the series by the author of the Vincent's World series, is a serious work dealing with pain, retaliation, and healing. Mitch Denton, now in command of the surviving members of the “Silks” gang, captures Vincent with the intention of selling him as revenge for his own previous humiliation. Those Below, together with Devin and Joe Maxwell, plan a rescue. The ending, though predictable, is still satisfying and leaves the reader with a clear view of V/C's future together. As in the VW series, V/C are married and parents of twins. The interior art, mainly striking portraits by Hauer, includes sidal nudity. Much explicit V/C sex opens and ends the story. [2]
