They fought the good fight (or the bad fight in some cases), but now their time is done.
So where do super-powered beings go when their days of battling evil are done?
Why, Tranquility, of course.
Somewhere in America is a small town called Tranquility where the battle between good and evil is put in the past and “special” people can settle down and raise a family.
It’s as serene as it’s name promises until the gentlemanly detective, Mr. Articulate is run through with his own swordcane — in a diner full of people.
Stranger still, nobody saw the crime committed, not even a news crew in town to film a feature.
Now it’s up to the town’s sheriff, Thomasina Lindo, to solve the crime — even if it means turning over rocks on some very unpleasant business for some Tranquility residents.
Writer Gail Simone brings one of her passion projects to print and the result is an entertaining whodunit full of vibrant characters that sets the stage nicely for the rest of this series to unfold.
