Nick knows he's no hero, so he says thanks to the Lollipop Kids for all of the bad memories, and heads out of the park, back to his old, safe, boring life.

But something follows Nick, a GREMLIN named EXPO. Nick almost kills Expo, but FRESNO stops him and explains that the Gremlin is on their side, not all monsters are evil. Fresno gives Nick one last chance to join their ranks and to ful?ll his destiny, but Nick's soiled pants tell him all he needs to know.

Nick leaves again, but soon he stumbles upon something much worse than a gremlin-and this time NOBODY is coming to his rescue.

    The origin of the group is given and a new character introduced in this highly entertaining book. The premise is fantastic, lending itself to several possible stories, and the characters are very enjoyable. This is perfect for younger readers and older ones who remember what it was like to be young and adventurous. Recommended. Read Full Review

    It's a lot of reveals that are packaged well in its presentation that still has Nick keeping to the side of it just enough where you're almost frustrated by his lack of interest but understand because of his desire to find his sister. I continue to find Nick to be one of the best fleshed out kids in comics right now, even after two issues, as there's just a grounded reality here that works so well. The concept is working well and I'm hopeful that it's going to get enough of a run to really explore some of it since there's so much that can be done here just in the here and now, never mind exploring different periods of time for extended runs and stories to weave something bigger. It's a great looking book and I can't wait to revisit it in larger chunks as well in the future. Read Full Review
