There’s nothing like a boy-meets-girl-meets-boy story.
Steve, the self-centred mod and star of Long Hot Summer, faces the dilemma most men have at some point in their lives: Do I screw over my buddy for a girl?
His best friend Ken, the flaky mooch, thinks he’s found the girl of his dreams. But once Ashley, the bewildering shopgirl, meets Steve, she’s hooked on him — and is more than happy to show him how much.
Veteran writer Eric Stephenson and artist Jamie McKelvie present a pleasantly different type of romance comic, told without the benefit of internal monologue, and simply putting the character’s actions out there for interpretation.
