Nicky had a pretty average, although sheltered, New York childhood. Sure because of his slight frame and awkwardness he was the targets of childhood taught and bullies, but Nicky discovered the world of the pulp novel and magazine as well as comic books. His mind became fascinated by the possibilities that each writer would craft about far off worlds, vampires, ghosts, or amazing technology most who would think impossible.
His love for the weird and insatiable curiosity would often get him in trouble as Nicky grew up. He dreamed of becoming a writer for some these stories, but he never could come up with any good ideas. He practiced constantly writing and drawing but didn’t have anything interesting enough for the pulps. He would spend whole weekends in the library researching arcane and occult subjects to help with better stories. This itself did not prove enough to give him any good ideas. He began to explore the streets of New York looking for the bizarre.
