Calvin Wheeler is a 13-year-old comic book fanatic, he loves Gotham Man, and is one issue short of complete comic bliss. The rare issue he seeks is major bucks, but when he finds out how much he can win if he finds a canine companion good enough to win the top prize, he knows what he has to do. Calvin finds a dog, named Tyco, at a shelter that he's prepared to make a winner, but in the process finds there's something more valuable in his experience than money.
Calvin, along with his friends Emily and Raymond, work to achive their goals; but, along the way, trouble hits. It's a rocky road for Calvin. Will he reach his goal?
