The 2017 indie comic series from RosenbergΒ and artist Tyler Boss focused on a young girl, Paige, convincing her friends to rob a bank before her father does, trying to save him the trouble of running into cops so she can protect her broken family from further disaster.

Apart from being an emotional story of child crime, it's a coming-of-age adventure that sees the group running afoul of cops and gangsters, while also riffing on the theme of parenting in modern society. The story also had quite a few intriguing twists and turns as the teens discover more about their own dynamic as friends now embedded in this new life of crime.
