From expressing themselves through graffiti or cutting loose on the dance floor, the party is always raging- that is, until the Brotherhood of the Cracker catches wind of the good time and decides to crack down.

Before they know it, the Grrls are being hunted by assassins and are on the run for their lives. From the comic shop to homogenized suburbs and the ivory towers of corporate greed, Grrl Scouts is an action-packed, hip hop comics adventure that attacks society with both fists and never stops punching.
