Fresh from Free Comic Book Day, The Mall is set in everyone's favorite decade, the 1980's. This coming of age crime story takes place in a small Florida town at the height of the popularity of indoor malls. When the head of the Cardini Mob Family mysteriously dies, his three illegitimate children each inherit a store in the mall. While the stores front as legal businesses, the real money is in the illegal businesses. The kids are thrust into a world of crime, all the while just trying to survive normal high school life. It's like a John Hughes Godfather movie. Co-written by History Channel's Knightfall writer Don Handfiel more

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 22, 2018

    I enjoyed this one, and if I see this on the shelf I may pick it up, I thought the premise is a decent idea along with some character work which makes the audience connect and more importantly, care about them, with some actual drama thrown in there. Set in the 80's which is hot right now makes me feel a little nostalgic and it will probably hit further home for actual Americans who hang around at shopping centers. I will be listening to Madonna's like a prayer while I eagerly await the next issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jul 21, 2018

    In The Mall #1, Handfield, Haick, and Loureiro do a good job introducing its three main characters, its high concept coming of age meets mob movie premise, and then throws everyone into the deep end after taking its time getting to the gangster stuff. Read Full Review

    Very disappointing. From an interesting premise, we quickly fall into the normal patterns for a modern comic. All white people are racist and evil, all step fathers are rapists, rich people are bad, poor people are good. You know the sort of thing, it's rampant in comics, and here is no exception.
