Book Three in the Couriers saga hits the rewind button on the lives of everybody's two
favorite urban mercenary couriers and goes back, way back, to 1993. Moustafa's a dirtbag
grunge kid selling weed by the cube at Astor Place and Special's a riot grrrl with a mean
streak, looking to carve a place for herself in the criminal underworld. How do these two
unlikely partners meet up and become the tight-knit team they are now?
Meet Johnny Funwrecker, the hilarious larger-than-life Chinatown mob boss and role model for little
street rat hooligans all over. Wood doesn't scrimp on the action and humor in this origin
story, and artist Rob G kicks out his own hometown anthem, drawing New York City the
way only a true local can.
"The Couriers is the comics equivalent of less talk more rock."
-- Matt Fraction
