All is revealed as the kids explore a new dimension of reality and T-Rex and the captain finally reveal their true identities, and join the good fight.

Could Whippet be developing his own comic superpower? The boys are heading off to the woods for an Explorers' Camp weekend. They'd rather be at home reading comics, but it should take their minds off the super-weird events of two weeks ago. They haven't seen Lucy since their destruction of the Snotticus, and Mossy's superpower hasn't worked since then either, so maybe it's time to move on. Lake Shore must be monster-free now! Anyway, with caveman-like Ted Recks (AKA T Rex ) as camp leader the boys will be more than safe this weekend, right? Luckily for Simon & Whippet help is closer than they think, and their combined talent for Telling and Drawing stories is about to come in very handy indeed. With out-of-this-world artwork by Jan Bielecki, FREAKY & FEARLESS is a fun-filled series like no other!
