SCPD #1 – The Case of the Claw

By Keith R. A. DeCandido

The great metropolis of Super City is the home of dozens of costumed heroes: Spectacular Man, the Terrific Trio, the Bruiser, the Superior Six, and more.

This isn’t their story…

When the heroes are done punching out the villains, it’s left to the stalwart men and women of the Super City Police Department to restrain them, arrest them, and hope that this time there’s enough evidence to actually convict them.


The mutated spree killer known as the Claw has returned, leaving bloody victims all over Super City. While Homicide detectives try to find out who the Claw really is, uniformed officers must deal with the Bolt’s escape from the drunk tank, and the bumblings of aspiring hero Knight Dude. Meanwhile, the Superior Six claim they’ll cooperate with the police and stop the Claw—but they’re busy fighting the Brute Squad and stonewalling the cops. The SCPD must find out the Claw’s deadly secret, before he claims another victim!

  1. Darren Pulsford

    Super City – where costumed heroes ply their trade in heroic feats and normal citizens live a safe and happy life.

    Actually – it’s where the much run-down police service strive to keep crime at bay, some of it caused by costumed villains, and also hindered by the do-gooding superheroes who gobble up the media headlines and cause no end of headaches with their disregard for official procedure.

    Keith takes a brisk police procedural – already with a clever set of plots, some colourful characters in the Police Precinct – and whacks in the Costumed Heroes (& Villains) element, sprinkles on a touch of humour and lifts the tale to an exciting romp that leaves you eager for more.
