During World War II, the major cities of Britain were protected against spies, saboteurs, and unusual threats by secret teams made up of superhuman Talents. Manchester's was codenamed STOAT/6, the forerunner of the modern day GOON SQUAD. Comprised of three Talents -- the inhumanely strong BULLDOG, the pyrokinetic CORPORAL CROCODILE, and the acerbic GRANNY SPEAKE -- the team was ordered in 1944 to investigate a strange series of murders in the city. What they found was the work of a depraved and monstrous mind, a killer who experimented on his victims, and whose plans seemed to be approaching their unknowable climax.
Now there has been a new killing that bears all the same hallmarks. Ian Mears, the REVENANT, interviews the last surviving member of STOAT/6. Has the dread VIVISECTOR truly returned? The secret may just lurk in the memories of one who experienced LIFE DURING WARTIME.
