Once they were heroes, but the age of heroes has long since passed. Banished from existence by a multiversal crisis, the old champions of Spiral City—Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Madame Dragonfly, and Barbalien—now lead simple lives in a timeless farming town. Even as they try to find their way home, trouble has a unique way of finding heroes wherever they are!
• From the prodigious brain of Jeff Lemire (Descender, Animal Man, Sweet Tooth)!
• Amazingly realized by Dean Ormston (Lucifer, 2000 AD) and Dave Stewart (Hellboy)!

New from Jeff Lemire!
