Synopsis

New Jersey, 1998. Chris has just started the teen dream job: working at Vinyl Mayhem, the local record store. She’s prepared to deal with anything—misogynistic metalheads, grunge wannabes, even a crush on her wicked cute co-worker, Maggie.

But when the staff’s favorite singer mysteriously vanishes the night before her band’s show in town, Chris finds out her co-workers are doing more than just sorting vinyl…her local indie record store is also a front for a teen girl vigilante fight club!

Reviews

“Usdin seamlessly sets up these dynamics to deliver a team that you want to follow as a reader, as these different personalities unite for the common cause of music and justice. My favorite interaction is between Maggie and Chris as Usdin gives the most panel time to this relationship, setting up an adorable will-they-or-won’t-they plot between the two.” (Newsarama: “Best Shots Advance Reviews: SHIPWRECK #5, HI-FI FIGHT CLUB #1”)
