This book kind of seems like a modern twist on Stand by Me with a gangster twist. I love the artwork, and I think the story has a lot of promise, but I think I would have liked there to be a bit more background on our cast of characters in this issue. Maybe our "mysterious gang" could have benefitted from each getting a more focused introduction, PLUS our little rascals could have benefitted from more
