Tight! Lately Bryan's been feeling it in all kinds of ways. He knows what's tight for him in a good way: reading comics, drawing superheroes, and hanging out with no drama. But drama has a way of finding Bryan, and these days that gets him wound up seriously tight.
Now, Bryan's new friend Mike is challenging him to have fun in ways that are crazy risky. At first, it's a rush hopping turnstiles, subway surfing, and getting into all kinds of trouble. But Bryan never feels right when he's acting wrong. Fortunately, his favourite comic-book heroes shed light on his dilemma, reminding him that he has power: the power to choose his actions, and his friends, and do the right thing.
