Last we saw Zatanna, Oscar Hempel reversed the curse her father had put on him and had instead turned our leading lady into a marionette. With the help of an old friend, Zatanna must regain control of her powers, body, and mind in order to save herself from being locked away in a glass display case – and exact revenge on the man who tried to imprison her for all eternity.
When Zatanna brings Oscar Hempel to Shadowcrest, her family’s mansion, to try and reverse the spell her father placed on him, little does she know his villainous intentions. The power hungry marionette will stop at nothing to become human again – and exact revenge on the bloodline that turned him into a puppet in the first place.
“Strung Along” is the latest chapter in Paul Dini’s darkly comic “Pupaphobia” storyline. Featuring art by Cliff Chiang, ZATANNA #10 is in stores now.
