They were six normal teenagers linked only by their wealthy parents' annual business meeting...until a chance discovery revealed the shocking truth: their parents are the secret criminal society known as the Pride! For years, the Pride controlled all criminal activity in Los Angeles, ruling the city with an iron fist...and now, with their true natures exposed, the Pride will take any measures necessary to protect their organization - even if it means taking out their own children! Now on the run from their villainous parents, Nico, Chase, Karolina, Gertrude, Molly and Alex have only each other to rely on.
Picked this volume up on a whim. I love it when I pick winners and this definitely is. Another comic that takes the well-known narrative and turns it on its head. Of course we all the know the first twist on the story, but the really interesting part is the dynamic between the main characters. I think Nico was my favorite of the six, but all had a very interesting path through the volume. I think I might just pick up the second volume.
