A Graphic Novel

Cover by Erik Reeves

NYC's underworld teems with cutthroats, club kids, spies, counter-spies, and dumb cops; Jake & Leo can't count on much, but they can count on each other. 

Armed with a mail-order covert ops pamphlet, a second-hand Zune, and a dream, Leo and Jake set out to show the pros how to specialize in the absurd and kill for a living...

The Unprofessionals: A Sociopathic Bromance, a 6-part graphic novel about Leo & Jake, college-age buddies who decide to become awesome ninja assassins.

Leo is an unusually resourceful young man whose social instincts are a little malformed. He is a planner and a dreamer, and the whole murder-for-hire thing is his idea. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of criminal lore, techniques, and procedures, and access to considerable resources through his grandfather, Vasili, a former Spetsnatz, now decrepit and senile. 

Jake needs the money. He's putting himself through college in New York City, one of the most expensive cities in the world. But beneath that, Leo's vision speaks to a deep wellspring of rage in Jake, the youngest of four brothers who were constantly pitted against each other by an abusive father. 

Now Leo and Jake are looking for their big break as world class assassins.   They'll have to out-wit homicide detectives, out-maneuver shady counter-terrorism operatives, and out-gun a gang of cut-throats who don't appreciate losing jobs to a couple of punks.

Lines by Chris Moreno & Letters by Troy Peteri

In their world, nothing is impossible, nothing is out of reach and everything conspires to snuff out their potential.
