"...RUSSKIES is consistently inventive....RUSSKIES becomes an adventure with much humor..."
A Russian sailor is shipwrecked in America and found by three adventurous young boys who grow fond of the Soviet and come to his aid. Anti-Soviet sentiments are strong in their community, but must be faced in the climatic ending.
Three boys, heavily influenced by a "Rambo"esque mentality, befriend a Russian sailor stranded in Key West. During their association, the boys learn that both good and bad people exist everywhere, and that there is no such thing as "the evil enemy". By the end, the aspiring commandos have turned in their comic books for "War and Peace."
