A novelization version of the upcoming film, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" is set in 1939 New York City. The story follows Lois Lane — like reporter Polly Perkins, who`s always looking for the latest scoop, as she covers the disappearances of many famed German scientists. After an interesting meeting with a stranger, who claims he`s "the only one left" and leaves Polly with just a name (Totenkopf — German for "Death`s Head") and a blueprint, the city falls under attack by giant trampling robots, but the day is saved when Sky Captain and the Flying Legion enter the scene and ward them off. Polly, naturally determined to find out what`s going on, teams up with Sky Captain as they both fly around the world to search for Totenkopf, aided along the way by Sky Captain`s right-hand man Dex and old-time friend Captain Francesca "Franky" Cook.
