First of all, if you told me I was going to like a book about Boy Scouts I would have said you were crazy. This book is so much more than that. This is one of the most unique concepts I've read in a long time. Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins have something really special here.
This book centers around a group of four boys, who are elite team of boy scouts also called Black Badges. They are sent in to complete missions for the government because nobody would expect it. I mean come how crazy is that. It's so crazy I wouldn't be surprised if this has happened. Each kid has there own unique talents that makes them useful to the group. The best part is nobody else know what they do. I don't want to go much more into the story, but this is definitely going on my pull.
The art on this book is phenomenal. Tyler Jenkins art is perfect for this story. I can't believe I haven't seen his work before, now I need to go get his other books.Then you have Hilary's coloring, I have one word for it, beautiful. I love books that have the painted look to them. This book was one of the most pleasane surprises I've had in a long time.
