Code 45 is a 5-issue series about Vanessa, a subway driver in Montreal who hears rumors that there are 'dragons' in the tunnels, monstrous apparitions that seemingly defy any explanation.

Her co-workers are terrified of working nights because of what they've seen, and so a large number of them self-medicate to get through their shifts without giving in to fear and anxiety. Gradually, it's become impossible for them to tell what's real, and what's a hallucination brought on by their drug use.

Vanessa is transferred to the night shift and falls slowly into both this world and, thanks to her DJ roommate, the underground rave scene (a source of drugs and mayhem). She starts to witness things she can't explain, and is forced to confront a shocking secret from her past that will make her question everything she though she knew about her family, her job, and the nature of reality.
