Welcome to Tranquility, Vol. 1

Welcome to Tranquility, Vol. 1

Tranquility is like any other small town in America, except for one fundamental difference--it's the town where super-powered beings go in order to retire and raise families. From the Golden Age to the Modern Age, heroes and villains alike reside in Tranquility and it creates a unique blend of personalities and conflicts that causes the local law enforcement nothing but headaches. As a camera crew is in town to film a news segment on this unique place, the town is turned upside down by a murder...and it becomes evident that all isn't as quaint as it seems!

Collecting the first six issues of the acclaimed series by Gail Simone and Neil Googe!

    Yes.I'm not a superhero comic reader, as a rule, but I AM super into these parodic/superhero-adjacent works (i.e. Top 10, Vol. 1, Johnny Hiro, Cat Girl's Day Off, Rising Stars). And this is a love...

    For those who don’t know, prolific Twitter user (“Twitter-er?,” “tweeter?”) Gail Simone also occasionally writes comic books. Really good ones I’m told because, surprisingly, I’d never a...

    If the book had been like the first issue in the volume, then I would have given it 5 stars. It starts on a really high note. Simone's characterization of some elder super-heroes at a diner creates an...

    I kinda went backwards with this series, reading the third arc first, so it was interesting learning about the origins of the characters I was already familiar with. There's a real Watchmen vibe to th...

    I like the premise and the basic lot here but this didn't read like a Gail Simone book to me. The jokes were all a bit lazy and too easy. The mystery was good and made sense though. I wish this world ...

    2.5 rating really. I am so torn on this. The concept and Gail Simone's writing are wonderful but something was missing and did not grab me. The asides and random scraps of comics were a neat way to sh...

    Very interesting take on life after being a cape (or maxi, in this world). What happens when age (and amnesia) catch up with the superhuman? ...
