Publisher's Summary

Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.
With no other options, Owen is forced to take a job overseeing a group of corpies, corporate-sponsored Supers who do rescue long as there are cameras around. Between a team that doesn't want him, fellow Heroes who don't trust him, and a nation that might not be ready to forgive the sins of the past, the return of Titan could prove even harder than the scandal that drove him away. But Owen will have to push on, because his new city is far from a peaceful one.
A mysterious enemy is attacking Heroes and growing steadily stronger. An enemy that only the once-legendary Titan might be able to stop. If he can manage to stick around this time.

Doesn't spoil upcoming Super Powered books!

I was both eagerly anticipating and dreading Corpies release. If you've finished Year One have no fear, the spoilers in Corpies are very, very minor. Time-wise it seems to take place during Super Powereds Year Three, but it avoids all but two very minor spoilers, one of which is painfully obvious and the other very easily missed.

The book is great. It does a lot of great world building, giving a wealth of information about the world of Super Powereds and how it works. The story itself is as original a super hero story as I've ever read. It really deserves a place along side Watchmen (graphic novel, not the dreadful movie). I'm not sure if Drew is planning to continue the story of Titan and/or the corpies, but I'd read it in a second.

Titan is my Hero

Titan is my hero and I'm grateful to the author for this volume. Without pandering or resorting to depressing tropes, Mr. Hayes has delivered, in my opinion, his best work yet in the Super-Powereds setting. If you haven't listened to SP Years 1 and 2, I recommend you do so before starting this volume. It's a stand-alone piece, but you'll enjoy it more that way. You can listen to Corpies confidently without fear of spoilers of SP Year 3.

I hope that we'll see more of Titan and the others in this volume in the future, but I also hope that the author will continue to explore tangents leading off the Super-Powereds line. They lead to amazing places.

You should listen to this book.
