Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Herobear and the kid. A nostalgic view of childhood, complete with new schools, bullies, true love, imagination, superheroes, and...a magic bear.

After his grandfather passes away, young Tyler inherits an old stuffed toy bear and a broken pocket watch. He soon learns that things aren't what they seem, and that you shouldn't judge a bear by its cover.

Come remember your childhood, as Tyler remembers his.

Review:

"Much like Jeff Smith's Bone, Herobear and the Kid is a comic which can be equally enjoyed by kids and adults....If you're looking for something different, something that works on many levels, then I highly recommend Herobear and the Kid....Mike Kunkel has created a series which is a standout among today's comic marketplace. With a charm and character all its own, Herobear and the Kid serves as a perfect example of a comic with a heart." Wesley Craig Green, ComicWorldNews.com

Review:

"Kunkel's irreverent but sketchy style [stands] out as unlike anything else that we see in comics. The unfinished quality of his style works surprisingly well. It's as though he invites the reader into the creative process while nevertheless telling an enveloping story. The exaggerated detail in his work is impressive, and I still haven't tired of the flash of the one color element: Herobear's cape." Don MacPherson, TheFourthRail.com

Review:

"One doesn't need to go much more beyond the first page of Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid to fall in love with this story. It has that one quality that doesn't come around very often — it's timeless." Joe Quesada, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics

Review:

"Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid is definitely a 'from-the-heart-feel-good' experience that made me feel like a kid all over again, and remember how great my childhood was." Chuck Gordon, producer of Field of Dreams, The Rocketeer, and October Sky

Review:

"Kunkel's experience in animation shines through every page — not only in the style of the renderings, but in the pacing and action sequences. In short, a treasure. A treat." R.C. Harvey, The Comics Journal and www.RCHarvey.com

Review:

"Kunkel's strengths as an artist are equally matched by his talent as a writer. Herobear is easy enough to follow for kids, smart enough for the mature comic fan, yet action-packed enough for the traditionalists — all due to Kunkel's greatest strength...characterization." Casey Seijas, staff writer for Wired Magazine

Synopsis:

This is the first collection of Eisner and Ignatz Award-nominated series Herobear & the Kid by creator Mike Kunkel. This volume contains issues 1-5 of the hugely successful story of a young boy named Tyler and his magical stuffed bear that comes to life as Herobear.

Synopsis:

About the Author

Nominated for Eisner and Ignatz Awards, Mike Kunkel is the creator of the 2002 Eisner Award-winning comic book Herobear and the Kid. After years of working for such animation studios as Warner Bros., Sony, and Walt Disney Features, Mike realized that to be truly happy he had to work on his own stories and books. So he abandoned a life of financial comfort and three-hour lunches for a life of creating stories for all ages and working twelve-hour days. He is in the process of turning Herobear and the Kid into a full-length animated feature for Universal Studios. Mike lives in Southern California with his family and friends.
