Editorial 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 Díaz, 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
