Product description

Review

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 --Various
