This graphic novel from Image Comics and writer-artist Adam Pollina (X-Force, Big Daddy Danger) features an unlikely pair of heroes: an armless teenage boy named Emilio Rompiero who believes himself to be video-game style, street-fighting super-hero and his caretaker—a one-eyed, alcoholic midget wrestler named Chi Chi Gigante. Essentially, they decide they’re going to reclaim their crime-ridden neighborhood for the good folks who live there, and they’re going to do it one street at a time. In this one-shot, Emilio prepares himself for his first challenge: a local bully named Lu Lu Lebrowski.
