"DMC grew up reading comics and developed a passion for them. In his first graphic novel, it's 1985 in New York City and graffiti covers subway cars as b-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Drugs and crime rule the streets. The city's brand new guardian angels wear spandex and capes, wielding their gadgets and their superpowers to 'clean up' the City for the benefit of a select few. The rest whisper a different name: DMC, who dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city's marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike." -- publisher's website.
