Beau Verducci is an unmarried young man who supports his ailing mother, his father passed away. He’s a candlestick maker. Morris Delveccio is a baker that loves the ladies, but never has a lot of money to spend. And Joe the butcher has a shrew of a wife that assails him for his lack of money.
Each man has his own reasons to want the end of the protection racket.

The artwork is by the author, interesting in itself, the text minimal, and it rhymes. An unusual idea all around and I’ll look forward to more parts to see how author Scherer resolves it all.
