New York City, 1985. Wildstyle graffiti covers subway cars. Koch is mayor. Drugs and crime rule the streets. A terrifying plague is brewing in the shadows. As the populace loses faith in the police, the city's brand new guardian angels wear spandex and capes, wielding their gadgets and their superpowers to clean up the City, even if their methods hurt more people than they help. They whisper the name of the hero: DMC. He dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defends the city's marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike, leaving no traces besides the imprint of his knuckle rings on his opponents' faces.

    When I heard Darryl DMC McDaniel was getting involved with comics, I'll admit I chuckled. We've seen many attempts by celebrities and musicians in comics. Much to my surprise, there is definitely something here everyone can enjoy. McDaniels and Damion Scott introduce us to an interesting new world where superheroes can exist. Seeing this alternate version of DMC is fascinating and throughout the story, we even get to see a transformation and evolution of the character. Adding to the story is an army of incredible artists, each taking a chapter in this 70 page story. With real graffiti artists adding to the backgrounds, there's a great feel and look to the overall story. Because of the size and the format, there is a higher price tag that might deter some readers. But for a debut issue, there is a lot of charm and heart within these pages. I can't wait for the next volume. Be sure to track down this issue to check it out for yourself. Read Full Review
