::On the Epic Interview set, a phone rings::
Jeremy: Hey, can someone get that? Anyone? (no answers) Fine, I’ll get it. Hello?
Mac: Jeremy, it’s Mac! I’m in big trouble!
Jeremy: I’m sorry but the V-Mobile subscriber you’re trying to reach…
Mac: You said hello! I know it’s really you!
Jeremy: Oh sorry, I’m in the middle of my Loki the Trickster comic and didn’t want to be interrupted. What were you saying again?
Mac: I’m in trouble. I went to a city called Pacific Heights and –
Jeremy: You went where?!
Mac: Pacific Heights. All the travel websites said it was a safe place to go.
Jeremy: You fool, we had a guy named Jericho on the show yesterday and he told us how ‘safe’ that place was! You need to get outta there ASAP!
Mac: I’m trying, but there someone called The Negative Man. The people I’ve talked to said he was dead, but really strange things have been happening. Here, I’m emailing you a picture of today’s newspaper…
Jeremy: Holy rusted hockey sticks! This sounds serious. What options do you have?
Mac: I’m at the train station with a ticket home. Hopefully everything will be okay –
::phone line went dead, only static::
Jeremy: Mac, are you there? Mac?
**Looks like Mac picked a lousy place to go on vacation, doesn’t it? And just who is this Negative Man we keep hearing about? Stay tuned as more information comes out…
