by DC In Welcome to Tranquility, Tranquility, California, is home to a vast collection of empowered beings, known as “Maxis,” who relive their glory days. Some old rivalries and bitternesses still survive, though, a fact that rears its ugly head with the murder of a longtime hero, Mr. Articulate. Mr. Articulate is a bit of a dandy, and a fine and proper gentleman. He has a slightly complicated relationship with the local sheriff, Thomasina Lindo. Sheriff Lindo makes it her mission to solve the crime—which occurs during a huge brawl at a lunchtime eatery.
