Issue Synopsis: Opens with a flashback 2 years prior. A dead dragon has crushed St. Flannigan’s Church. Father Shambles and Eddie go to the records bureau to get the necessary permits, but they get the run-around from Reilly, the records keeper. Shambles takes it upon himself to approve his own permits and accidentally approves Locust as the Royal Wizard.
Two years later, Locust performs for the Royal Family, Sgt. T.S. and a group of nobles. The trick goes so bad that the king declares he must win the Wizard Olympics or lose his job. Meanwhile, the evil Tibernius, Steven and the Dark One are plotting the overthrow of the kingdom. They hire Tony the Quick (world’s meanest elf) to sabotage Locust’s spell book.
Cubby, Sir Dan, Barbara and Shambles try and help Locust prepare for the contest, but Locust seems to be loosing his touch. In the meantime, Sgt. T.S. is kidnapped by the evil trio and Tony. While Locust’s spells continue to get even more out of control, our villains tell Sgt. T.S. their plan.
During the Wizard Olympics, they will replace Sgt. T.S. with an evil duplicate that will kill the Royal Family. Tibernius will pretend to save them and gain the trust of the only remaining royal, Princess Chastity, who would be heartbroken at Sgt. T.S.’s betrayal.
Finally, the day of the Olympics comes. Sir Dan’s plan is to trick the wizard judges into thinking Locust has summon a demon. Unfortunately, during a crucial point during the competition, Locust’s biggest rival, Merlin of Camelot upstages him. Locust, using his sabotaged spells, accidentally sends the entire Olympics to Hell.
Sir Dan manages to save the King from the evil Sgt. T.S. and Locust manages to reverse the spell, leaving the Dark One behind in Hell to answer to his evil masters. Locust is later reinstated to his post as Royal Wizard, although our heroes are now only 6" until the spell wears off.
