More than a year has passed since the Occult War was lost, and little has gone well for those who stand against the forces of darkness. Many nations are now in Nazi hands, and the shadow of occupation hangs heavily over the remaining free people of Europe. Closer to home, saboteurs and traitors now lurk in the shadows which once sheltered criminal scum, and only one man can stand against them. The Red Panda may have lost much of his army of justice, but he still has an iron will, the strength of ten and most of all... The Nose For News!
There may not be an ideal time to learn that one of the Red Panda's deadliest foes has escaped custody, but this certainly isn't it.

And all of that before they even deal with ... The Home Team!
They say that crime knows no loyaties, and there is no honour among thieves. Certainly, for a nation at war, any attack upon the forces of law and order may be seen as an act of treason. But what if crime were a nation onto itself? A force of nature, bound only by its own harsh rules? Could even the Red Panda prevent the reign of... The King Of Crime?
The Red Panda has faced many dangers in the service of his country, and few seem greater than being forced to share a sandbox with other superheroes. The masked marvel has never been known to work and play well with others, but is that the only reason he has been kept away from the entire Home Team, or is there something more sinister at work? Trust seems like such a simple thing, but sometimes it can be positively.... Rocket Science!
Time for a night on the town - West Coast Style! When the Flying Squirrel trails a sabotage ring to Vancouver, can a run in with the local masked hero be far behind? And when the Grey Fox turns out to be a heroine with a chip on her shoulder and a nasty temper, the stage is set for one heck of a... Girls' Night Out!
A mysterious monster is tearing through the landscape, destroying anything that gets in its way, and headed straight for Toronto! And nothing the Home Team can throw at this unstoppable object seems equal to the task of playing immovable force. Where did this terrible creation come from? Can anything stop it? And just why was the Red Panda the last choice to stop the... Barbarian at the Gates?
Through the mists of time, from an age almost forgotten, comes a lost blade once wielded by a man who held much of the civilized world under his power. Three thousand years later, a different tyrant has similar dreams. Can the Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel keep such a powerful talisman out of his hands? Can even a disciple of an old friend defend them from the... Sword of the Sun King?
Let's see... the Nazis have decimated the Council of Mages in the Occult War and swarmed over half of Europe. They have squadrons of telepathically controlled dinosaurs and fantastic technology derived from dark magic. And their man inside Canada has run the country's masked heroes ragged trying to keep up. And it turns out that the only thing stopping things from getting a whole lot worse are a few... Small Wonders!
A newspaper is a powerful tool. The voice of the people, a beacon of truth in dark times and a reflexion of all that we would like to be as a city, a nation, a people. But if you happen to be the unseen hand behind Nazi fifth-column efforts, you just might get a little sick and tired of a certain crusading daily. And if you did, what choice would you have but to...
