Teen-aged Chris is working at a local record shop and is enamored of her new coworkers, especially pretty Maggie. But it seems like her fellow coworkers are leaving her out of something when they close for the evening and don't need her to stick around with them. When the lead singer of a favorite band disappears right before a live performance, Chris is pulled into the inner circle and discovers the record shop employees are also secret vigilantes determined to find the missing vocalist.

I was really excited for this book based on the description. The characters and artwork were both appealing. The story itself was pretty interesting as well, but it seemed like this book ended just as it was getting started. Presumably, there will be more in the series, but I like when comics at least attempt to wrap up a storyline within one volume. ( )

It's my second super-diverse disappointingly generic Scooby-Doo adventure in a row. (See [b:Moonstruck, Volume One: Magic to Brew|35758543|Moonstruck, Volume One Magic to Brew (Moonstruck #1)|Grace Ellis|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1519888647s/35758543.jpg|57259568]) An appealing cast of characters goes to waste in a silly fight club that also fights crime and a convoluted missing person story that doesn't even wrap up in the first volume. Not sure I care enough to find out how it ends. ( )
