The kids at Bayport High are about to get a rude awakening, but Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys are on the case! Life wouldn’t be so bad without adults bossing kids around all the time, right? Imagine the freedom of being able to do whatever you want, whenever you want, without sacrificing your youth for even a moment. That fantasy may seem perfect, but as the protagonists of the plucky graphic novel Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys: The Case of the Missing Adults quickly realize, it’s anything but.

Eating candy nonstop and watching TV all day sounds great . . . until you actually do it, as the kids of Bayport High find out when all the adults vanish, and the world’s greatest (high school) detectives—the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew!—have to team up to solve the mystery! Whether it’s going under cover, sneaking out at night, chasing weird buses, or following a strange smell, they know it’ll take all their wits and smarts to get their parents and teachers back . . . that is, if Joe and Frank don’t kill each other first. Oh, and there’s also the matter of the skeleton that can walk. And a major feud with a rival high school. And a koala-in-a-diaper costume. And lawlessness in the hallways. And an unrequited crush . . . Written by Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual, Star Trek: Waypoint) and drawn by Bob Solanovicz (Mister Meow), NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS: THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING ADULTS! is a high-octane, nonstop comedic romp full of action, excitement, mystery, and friendship. And mayhem. Lots of mayhem.
