This is a pretty interesting-looking new series from Scout Comics. It’s like Archie meets the Sopranos in the 80’s.
“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 Handfield and Solar Flare’s James Haick III.”
