Sulla base delle Profezie di Agnes Nutter, Strega (messe per iscritto nel 1655 prima che Agnes facesse saltare in aria tutto il villaggio riunito per godersi il suo rogo), il mondo finirà di sabato. Sabato prossimo, per essere proprio precisi. È per questo motivo che le temibili armate del Bene e del Male si stanno ammassando, che i Quattro Motociclisti dell'Apocalisse stanno scaldando i loro poderosissimi motori e sono pronti a lanciarsi per strada, e che gli ultimi due scopritori di streghe si preparano a combattere la battaglia finale, armati di istruzioni clamorosamente antiquate e di innocue spillette. Atlantide sta emergendo, piovono rane dal cielo. Gli animi si surriscaldano... Bene bene. Tutto sembra proprio andare secondo il Piano Divino. Non fosse che un angelo un filo pignolo (ma giusto un filo, per carità) e un demone che apprezza la bella vita - ciascuno dei quali ha passato tra i mortali sulla Terra parecchi millenni e si è, come dire?, affezionato a usi e costumi umani - non fanno esattamente salti di gioia davanti alla prospettiva dell'incombente catastrofe cosmica. E allora, se quei due (Crowley e Azraphel) vogliono che quanto profetizzato non si compia, devono mettersi al lavoro subito per scovare e uccidere l'Anticristo (mica una bella cosa, visto che è un ragazzino simpaticissimo). Ma c'è un piccolo problema: sembra proprio che qualcuno lo abbia scambiato con qualcun altro...

Work Description

Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don't let you go around again until you get it right.

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future, written in 1655, before she exploded - the world will end on a Saturday.

Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...

People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it's only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day.

This time though, the armies of Good and Evil really do appear to be massing. The four Bikers of the Apocalypse are hitting the road. But both the angels and demons - well, one fast-living demon and a somewhat fussy angel - would quite like the Rapture not to happen.

Oh, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist...
