    @ dnewling;
    When I hit “ordinary” in the body then that rewired my thoughts. These four had to be every day teens. Every day American teens. With music tastes. With ideals. Self righteous because they’re teens. The scarves/bandanas just felt right. I felt going Jim Lee with it would be too far and read a bit too Klan. By bringing it down, 'made it seem a bit more criminal and a little more like vigilantism. With your entry? It. is. Everywhere. We have Judge’s robes, punk influences, suits and a police uniform. It’s dress-up-time cranked to eleven. This looks like children after justice. I almost want to believe that the werewolf thing is entirely in Tommy’s head and has nothing to do with anything Wolf Lupo did. That madness that goes wild with kids. Especially when they do that creepy face. You know that creepy face? When their eyes are wild and their teeth suddenly appear. That’s what you channeled here. Lovely work. The sneakers. The boots. The fact they look like they’re outside a courthouse instead of a back alley. Great stuff.

    @ D.Miranda;
    Over the years, your concepts have often left me pleasantly staring. The addition of technology has never hindered your organic touch. I’m going to greedily take your compliment and stash it with the odd assortment I’ve collected lately which includes Wil Wheaton. It’s now in the same category as women beards and for that I am sorry.

    @ kmcleod;
    Youtube didn’t go exactly as it should have. I foresaw the personal channel system at the chance to turn everyone on as news source. I partook of a social experiment back in 2007 to create a youtube celebrity. At that time, everything was about social topics. Your piece is of that vein or, rather, where it should have gone. I love the idea that Youtube could have become musicals of pending news. Especially if it was by the criminals themselves. Your entries are always beating on the pop culture pulse and it’s exciting to see them come up.

    @ Jason A. Quest;
    I like the age differences as it would lead into a bit more mischievous plots. It creates the juxtaposition that we’re all used to because of comic books. The hero and his youthful lads. Only children are hormonal bombs that could easily be switched to mayhem. When you consider they will be faced with a Counterfeiter, cases of Arson and finally a Kingpin then these happy three could face some heavy shit. I dig that you worked in brands because isn’t Tommy making his own with these two boys by going against the system?

    @jackcrowder--That's great feedback and background. Thank you. A few years ago, I saw some narcocorrido videos on YouTube made by Mexican criminals; and later beheading videos by al Qaeda featured credits and opening themes, so…
