What would you do if you found the body of a superhero lying unconscious in the woods? Who could you tell? On a normal school-day afternoon, five kids stumble upon the corpse of the great heroine Plutona. Presuming that she is dead and unsure if they should reveal their discovery, they decide to keep it a secret for the safety of the world. Ultimately, a decision is made to bury her the next day, but some of the gang have a different agenda. Friendships are tested and unlikely alliances form, leading to an unexpected twist and a tragic end. Lemire (Descender) takes readers on a journey through the darker side of adolescence, exploring abusive relationships, bullying, budding romance, and what it means to grow up. The artwork of Lenox (Nowhere Men) and colorist Bellaire sets the mood, allowing the characters to express deep emotional reactions that fill the pages with tension.

Jeff Lemire is so good at what he does. He’s able to make characters real in unreal scenarios. This book is basically a Stand By Me/Astro City mash-up and I’m here for every second of it. The teens act like teenagers. The hero is heroic. Its all pitch perfect. The art by Emi Lenox and Lemire himself is a great match for the book. Overall, a great read.
