10:54am: STREET CODE 3

In STREET CODE #3, Danger lurks everywhere in the streets of Carroll Gardens--even if that danger is mostly vehicular. Jack encounters his ex-girlfriend's ex-best friend: http://www.comixology.com/digital/3437/Street-Code-3

In STREET CODE #2, Jack gets into a would-be scuffle with an out-of-line line cook in Carroll Gardens in the wake of 9/11 and encounters a hulk with a basketball: http://www.comixology.com/digital/3325/Street-Code-2

FIRST ISSUE IS FREE: http://www.comixology.com/digital/3212/Street-Code-1

Jack, a native New York bruiser, is fed up with living in the dregs of a drug-addled Alphabet City where his neighbors are insane shut-ins and his bicycle is always getting stolen. He escapes from Manhattan to Brooklyn to make a fresh start in Carroll Gardens, only to face a new strain of street logic--where most everything he encounters is not as it seems. Jack steps in the hazing of eons-old rituals as a polarized community begrudgingly changes hands between tribes. With STREET CODE, Dean Haspiel returns to his semi-autobiographical roots and explores the emotional truths between prime and primate.
