BULLIES BEWARE! A freak accident gives five middle school bullies super powers. But instead of being able to transform into cool super-beings, they are forced to take on the characteristics of the kids they bully. Sure their abilities may be at an all-time high, but do they really have what it takes to save their school when their self-esteem is at an all-time low?

"The Offenders is the best use of detention since The Breakfast Club — funny, exciting, and the most charming thing I've read in ages. Writing something entertaining is tough, but writing something important is even tougher. Jerry and his boys have made it look easy." — Drew Pearce, writer of Iron Man 3

Mama's Boyz: The Big Picture
112 Pages / Soft Cover
Publisher: Mama's Boyz, Inc.;
ISBN-13: 978-0-979-61321-0
$9.95

16-year-old Yusuf Porter is visited by 4 versions of how he could turn out if he doesn't start to see how the decisions he makes today can affect him for the rest of his life. The 4 phantoms take him back in time to look at how his views on health, family, fashion and education have made them what they are, a real nightmare! The phantoms include the Phantom of Fitness, who is a 400 pound version of Yusuf, shows him what poor eating habits, too many video games and too little exercise have helped to make him that way. The Phantom of Fashion is a 70-year-old version who still wears his pants down around his ankles. Maybe those tattoos he got when he was 18 weren't such a good idea after all. The Phantom of Family and the Phantom of a Failed Education help round it off.
