Award-winning mystery novelist Gary Phillips came to BOOM! with the best idea they'd heard yet. THE SOPRANOS was the soap opera of upper-class mob life. What do you get, Gary asked, when you transplant that tension to the African-American gangs in inner-city L.A.? Answer- you get the story of CQ, a young man who thought the mob was his family, until it turned on him, forcing him to fight against California's crime families to stay alive! A potent mix of AMERICAN GANGSTER and THE WIRE for fans of Brubaker's CRIMINAL.
