"Outstanding rendition of superhero genres everywhere. Not your typical caped crusaders in these hero stories."

A sinister funhouse, apocalyptic cultists, and a mutant crime war. Suit up, hero. It's going to be a busy day.

It's a lovely day for a summer carnival. The sun is out, the Twinkies are deep-fried, and romance is in the air. Luke Gillis (a.k.a. Spitball) finally musters the courage to ask his lab partner out on a date. But with a shape-shifting villain on the loose, his timing couldn't be worse...
Red Mantis is determined to shatter a kidnapping ring, but can he do it alone? Mr. Wonderful has disappeared. Coyote is dead, murdered by the Cult of the Never-Ending Serpent. Medicine Man is on a rampage for revenge. When superheroes lose their moral compass, who will save the city?

Gabriel Simonson and Xavier Remy are inner circle henchmen of the infamous Warlocke. Until a crime war threatens to kill them and half of California. Their only hope: uncover the deepest secret of the world's most diabolical supervillain.
