Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Attention, citizens of the monster-ridden city-planet Arcopolis! The Death of Haggard West is the final installment in the legendary Invincible Haggard West comics series, the bestselling chronicle of the adventures of our beloved hero, Haggard West. In breathtaking color and frenetic action, this 32-page comic presents the final moments in the life of one of the greatest vigilante heroes Arcopolis has ever seen . . . and introduces his successor in the fight to save our city, Battling Boy.

 

From First Second Books:

The Death of Haggard West presents a sneak peek in pamphlet comic form of the first volume of Battling Boy, the electrifying new graphic novel from comics legend Paul Pope. This limited-edition one-off comic includes exclusive content that will not be found in the Battling Boy graphic novel: a spectacular cover and original diagrams from Battling Boy creator Paul Pope.  

The Battling Boy graphic novel will be available in October 2013.  

Review:

"The future of Arcopolis, a city under siege by daily monster attacks, is in jeopardy after its champion, Haggard West, falls in battle. Hope arrives in the form of Battling Boy, a pampered 13-year-old warrior god whose initiation into adulthood is to become Arcopolis's new protector. Even with magical powers imbued by a set of totemic T-shirts, Battling Boy grapples with both the onslaught of monsters and his newfound publicity. Meanwhile, Arcopolis' resident villains plot to keep their city hero-free, and West's daughter, Aurora, looks to take up her late father's mantle. Alt comics mainstay Pope, in his first work for young readers, trades his signature dark and heady aesthetic for a pulpy Technicolor fantasy with a flair that is expected of one of the industry's most acclaimed creators. But the book is more than just eye candy, matching its style with substance and tackling all-too-human problems (despite a cast of mostly otherworldly characters) like the fear of failure and the pressures of legacy. It's another notch in Pope's belt, and a worthy addition to any comics fan's library. Ages 10 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
