Read full description of the books Battling Boy vol. 1:Battling Boy is the son of a mighty God. He spent his childhood among his own kind in the so-called Starry Lofts - sounds pleasant, doesn't it? On the eve of his adolescence, however, he is sent all the way down to good old Planet Earth... or something like it, at least: to a city called Arcopolis.
Arcopolis is a place overrun with terrible monsters that, for reasons unknown, specialize in kidnapping the city’s children. The children’s sole protector has just been slain, and now Battling Boy is supposed to step up to the plate, that is, prove himself by becoming the city’s new hero. Not an easy task, not even for the son of a god.
The premise may not be terribly original, but creator Paul Pope brings it to life with imaginative detail and his trademark loose, raw, dynamic, kinetic artwork. Reminiscent of some of Alan Moore's ABC work, Battling Boy feels like the pulpier, raunchier, more subversive version of a traditional superhero origin story - targeted at a slightly older audience.
