So now Nancy Drew is leading The Hardy Boys into playing poker? How many more vices will that seductress lure them into partaking? (kidding.) ;)

However, seriously though- I'm not trying to be too overblown with it, but I'm not really enticed by these covers. I hope the story will not be as lurid as it seems. (Because gambling is a vice and I don't particularly want to see The Hardy Boys doing that. I'm assuming the poker game is part of undercover work of some sort.)

The Hardy Boys could never be gambling anyway because they aren't of age! No casino would let them in anyway.

Well, the review seems to indicate they are gambling, but it is for undercover work as I thought. Does the graphic novel specify the ages of any of the characters? Maybe Frank, Joe and Nancy are all in that nebulous early 20s range that they seemed to be on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (even though other things on the show sometimes indicated that they were still in their late teens, as the books have portrayed them.)

Well it says the Hardy's are in highschool when this started, but it seems to have been in the flashbacks...:-\

I haven't read it yet, so I'm not totally sure of the story- but if I understand correctly- you're saying there are some flashbacks to high school days? So The Hardys are probably in their early 20s in this story? (Can someone confirm this?)

They might've been talking about before they were suspects in the case. I'm not 100% sure on this, it's just how I read it.

It wouldn't be the first time.  The 95 TV series had Frank at 22 and Joe at 20, while the 70's series had Stevenson and Cassidy playing the boys at an ambiguous age in their late-teens to early-twenties, where they were not in high school, but were still with their parent's.
VHS, S-VHS, Super Betamax, Mini DV, MicroMV, Betacam SP, U-Matic SP - NTSC/PAL/SECAM.  All transferred to DVD!

Yeah, I was wondering if the comic was kinda following the '70s show model in that regard.
