Crosstown Crush is the main series featuring characters, Jim, Dana, Jose and Michelle.
The series was influenced by an original series written by Jim Nelson in high school featuring the same characters as adults in the downtown area of Chicago as a crime-fighting vigilante group, the series had little more than a few pages per issue.
After being inspired by select few Japanese graphic novels, Nelson changed the format of the story and re-wrote the entire story as a romantic comedy following high school graduates over the summer of 1993. The series is a linear story that is packaged in books of 80 pages per volume. Additional material featuring the characters in stories peripheral to the main story line are featured in the Crosstown Chaos series.
