The adventure begins in the new graphic novel by comics legend Paul Pope.

Monsters roam through Arcopolis, swallowing children into the horrors of their shadowy underworld. Only one man is a match for them - the genius vigilante Haggard West.

Unfortunately, Haggard West is dead.

Arcopolis is desperate, but when its salvation comes in the form of a twelve-year-old demigod, nobody is more surprised than Battling Boy himself.

IT'S TIME TO MEET AN ELECTRIFYING NEW HERO.

  • First things first, Paul Pope is my favorite comic book illustrator of all time. The visuals are excellent, and I think that's the selling point for literally his entire audience. His writing has a particular charm to it (more on that later), but we're here to watch the man draw. His work is as kinetic and energetic as ever, and this book has been a long time coming. If there's one thing to complain about on that end, it's the size of the book, which is quite a bit smaller than a standard graphic novel. Personally, I'd like to see his art blown up as big as possible. The art really doesn't suffer, and I don't miss the extra page space as much as I thought I would, but it's just odd that you have the best artist in the business working at a reduced size.

    Pope's writing style is very simplistic and (particularly when it comes to his dialogue) has a certain naivete. I used to consider it a weakness, but I've grown accustomed to it. It's very direct and simple. Characters say what they feel. There's a lot of shouting. There isn't much nuance to it. If you didn't know better, you might think this was written by a very bright middle schooler. But it works. There's a marriage of story and art here that I can't honestly say would be improved by a more sophisticated script.

    The area that could really use improvement here is the plot. I'm not usually very concerned with plot, but it's sort of a problem here. I don't get the impression that this was some meticulously planned opus, but rather that Pope more or less wrote the story as he went along, based around a loosely framed outline. The story jumps from scene to scene. It's very fragmented. There's not much in the way of segues. By contrast, Adam Warren's series Empowered is also a one man show that has sort of an improvisational feel to it, but as you sit and read it, it just flows. Every panel has a purpose. It feels like if Warren had all the time in the world to plan it out it would have pretty much turned out the same. That's not the case here. Most importantly, though, this isn't a proper story. It's barely a proper setup for a story. It's fun to read, but at the end of the day it feels like a series of loosely connected scenes that would have benefited from more thorough planning. I know there's at least one more volume on the way, and maybe more after that (though hopefully Pope has the restraint to keep the story finite, given his sluggish pace; I'd like to see the end of it), but it would have at least been nice to see one concrete, cohesive story arc here to set up future volumes, and this book fell just short of that.

    Cool premise, fun to read, and the best art on the planet, but it's not quite a story.

  • Modern day comics master Paul Pope delivers yet again, this time with an all-ages friendly multi-volumed storyline. Typically veering toward the mature and self-gratifying tales of the bizarre and futuristic, Pope reigns in his talents this time in order to tell the story of a young demi-god who must prove his worth by coming to Earth and do battle against the horde of monsters that have now apparently plagued the planet. Armed only with a unique arsenal of weaponry, Battling Boy soon realizes the task is much bigger than he thought as he catches the attention of the one person on the planet that just might end up being his greatest asset (which is all set up at the end for a second volume). More or less an origin story, this volume provides a whimsical tale with fast-paced action energy crackling to life with Pope's every ink-brush stroke. The tone is definitely youth-friendly despite plenty of creepy monster activity and action-packed fight sequences. While this isn't quite Pope's BEST work to date, it very well could be by the end of this story, which is only just getting started.

  • The wait is finally over and Paul Pope once again delivers the goods. It's obvious that Paul dug deep into himself for this one. The art is breathtaking, both kinetic and expressive. There is a consistent inventiveness that just pops off the page, transforming old ideas (like Haggard West and Humbaba) into something fresh and new. And the story, as the first chapter in an expanding series, pulls you through at a lightning pace, introducing dozens of characters and several worlds that would be great to spend more time with. There are several surprises throughout, and I really appreciate the story's fun & hopeful tone, as well as the diversity that feels organic in this book.

    A quote from page 91 gives a fair description of Pope's art on this one: "The pictures -- they appear to shimmer and shift, as if they were alive! These were painted with inks made of pulverized moonblood!"

    I like to imagine giving this as a gift to my past 10-year old self, because kids are going to love this series along with the growing numbers of grown-up Pope fans. I was surprised that the book itself was kinda small, especially since Pope's artwork is best viewed larger, but Paul has mentioned the possibility of a deluxe, oversized black and white edition in the works. And best of all, this means THB is ever closer, and judging from the quality of the work here it will be magnificent. Highly recommended.

  • It's hard to come up with Superhero's now a days , Marvel and DC have basically corned that market. Each having years and years at perfecting the craft of making the perfect hero. But if you have to ask who could potentially pull it off Paul Pope is here to tell you he can! Part Superman Part Thor all Pope, he crafts a story that the big two would have giving their right arm for! Even if you bought this book just for the art it's a steal at this price. Well worth every penny!

  • Regardless the hype about Paul Pope (a great author, indeed), this little book is definitely something special. It's a simple (but not silly) pulp story highly influenced by Marvel comics of the 70's (specially Jack Kirby), that grabs the reader since the beginning and that will leave a big smile in your face.
    The "manga-european" Pope's art really matches with the story. It's dynamic, highly detailed and incomparable in the action scenes.
    This is a graphic novel that surely will be remembered in the Eisner, Harvey and Eagle awards of 2014 ... and that will make you want for more.
    Definitely a must-buy!

  • Freaking amazing. Science fiction meets the best of fantasy. Paul Pope has created a franchise. There are so many veins to pursue and so many things to talk about related to the story. So many questions. It seems like he learned from the gods of the comic book language and applied all into this. Great work Pope. You are an inspiring voice the comics today. Thank you!
