City of Lost Children 1

Little known fact: Berkeley, California is terrorized by gangs of bicycle riding street urchins. It's true. Funny, but true. Unfortunately these are hardly the lovable scamps that ran wild through the streets of Brooklyn circa 1915. They don't play hookey, sneak into gambling halls, or run numbers for the mob.

Be sure and catch the startling conclusion in the next issue to find out if Jesse lives or dies!
