    It's hard to find any real, full-blown complaints with this series. The art is perfectly suited to the story, as always. I guess if I had to take issue with anything it would be that Lethem's writing can feel derivative of his novels at times. How many of his stories can feature gangs of dissident children tagging local landmarks with spray paint or "yoking" friendless classmates for their lunch money? Look closely and you might even see some of his other characters in the background of certain shots. I don't know how valid of a complaint that is, however. Though some of the trappings remain the same in every story, Lethem has a real talent for these unorthodox coming-of-age stories, and his writing works just as well on the four-color page as it does anywhere else.
