The graphic novel, penned by Ollie Masters (The Kitchen), follows high school teen Teddy, whose life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska is turned upside-down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad online and subsequently learns he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. When a man seeking revenge and FBI agents invade their town, Teddy learns his father’s reasons for going into the program may not be as innocent as he says.
