We Were Heroes
A Super-Powered Anthology

Released February 29, 2016

What happens when superheroes get old? Do they take it with grace, or do they rage against the dying of the light? Do they get crotchety or start waxing poetically of the good old days? Do they ever beat their lifelong nemesis, or do they continue to duke it out in the nursing home? These are questions We Were Heroes dares to explore!

We Were Heroes is a collection all about super-powered individuals in their waning years. Retired crime-fighters with special talents and technology, crusading vigilantes who find their bodies failing, and old warriors passing the torch to the next generation; this anthology will show us what life is like for these people as they get old. Go beyond their heyday, and see what these legendary heroes will become.
