When Battling Boy's father (a warrior god) drops him on a world infested with bloodthirsty monsters, he leaves his son with nothing but a magic credit card, a trunk full of enchanted tee shirts, and instructions not to come home until he's liberated the planet from its plague of monsters. Its one kid vs an entire world full of monsters. And the monsters don't stand a chance. The first of two hotly anticipated volumes from comics superstar Paul Pope, Battling Boy is already the subject of much excitement in the comics world and in Hollywood. With heart-thumping action, humour, and spectacular art, Battling Boy is poised to become a true blockbuster.

Reviews

There is no one in comics like Paul Pope: gifted beyond all reason, he is an artist of immense protean talents and a deep soulfulness.In Battling Boy, Pope has spun a smashingly beautiful adventure about a not-so-powerful boy-god sent down from the higher dimensions to save a crumbling city from the monsters that afflict it. Rapturously inked and drawing upon what feels like the entire tradition of pulp storytelling, Battling Boy is a thunderclap of a book--a kaleidoscopic mash-up of the highest order where kaiju mix it up with science heroes, and where a girl named Aurora takes up her fallen father's jet-pack (and his weapons) and nearly steals the whole show. Friends, this book is a number one stunner and the second installment cannot come soon enough. Junot Diaz, Pulitzer-Prize winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao Paul Pope's delightful and original "Battling Boy" is the adventure of the year! Jeff Smith, Eisner Award-winning author of Bone Full of energy, precision, and pure kick not to be missed. Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies Pope is set to soar to glory. "Wired" A new generation hero. "Entertainment Weekly"
