Characters Appearing: Desadia, Gabriel the Devil Hunter
Haunt of Horror #4 (Gabriel the Devil Hunter)
Issue(s): Haunt of Horror #4 (Gabriel the Devil Hunter story only)
They are attacked on the plane ride there.
And subsequently in the car.
When they finally face the demon, they fight it with love.
When it comes time to kiss the demon to prove that they love even it, Gabriel tries to get Desadia to pucker up for it. She refuses, but Gabriel's love for the demon, and the fact that it left a part of it inside him, causes it to be destroyed.
The idea in this story is that the person that got possessed decided to become a Satan worshiper, and Satan finds that very idea funny, since Satan "who can tolerate nothing but hatred" is not pleased with adoration.
I'm unclear if this is the same demon that we saw had possessed Gabriel in Haunt of Horror #2 (in which case i thought it was destroyed) or (more likely) if we should understand all of these demons as representing Satan, so that once any demon had possessed Gabriel, it means that a part of Satan is in him (in which case i should list Satan as a Character Appearing). In any event, the "we love you" ending is not really developed very well.
The front and back inside cover of this issue is a Gabriel the Devil Hunter pin-up by Neal Adams.
