Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Lynch provides classic comic-book repartee in beginning-reader-friendly vocabulary ably matched to Haspiel’s bold images and zippy colors; the highest-quality production supplies good, old fashioned fun and a superhero lesson that packs a wallop.” – Kirkus Reviews

 

Mona and Joey can’t stop fighting! When the Mighty Mojo decides to give his powerful costume to them, these argumentative twins fight so much they rip it in half. Now each one is only half as strong! Can Mo and Jo find a way to combine their powers, fight evil Saw-Jaw and save their town?

 

Two master cartoonists, writer Jay Lynch and artist Dean Haspiel, create a loving, tongue-in-cheek superhero tale where the kids’ biggest battle is just learning to get along.

Synopsis:

Mona and Joey can't stop fighting! They bicker about everything, expecially about who loves their favorite superhero, the Mighty Mojo, more. When the Mighty Mojo decides to pass his costume on to them, these argumentative twins fight so much that they rip it in half. Now each twin is only half as strong! Can Mona and Joey look past their differences and combine their powers? Or will they let the evil Saw-Jaw beat them and ruin their hometown's big parade? Two talented cartoonists, Jay Lynch and Dean Haspiel, combine their own artistic powers to craft a superheroic romp full of twists and turns that are bound to keep early readers asking for more.

About the Author

Jay Lynch, who wrote Mo and Jo’s story, loved to read superhero comics like Plastic Man when he was a kid. When he wasn’t reading comic books, he would draw his own cartoon characters on the sidewalk in front of his house—then hide in the bushes to hear what other kids had to say about his drawings! Jay grew up to become a legendary cartoonist and has helped create many popular humor products, including Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.

 

Dean Haspiel used to read Fantastic Four and Shazam! when he was a kid. He admits that when he was young, he used to fight with his brother, too: “All siblings have a healthy rivalry, and so did we.” He has illustrated Pulitzer Prize-wining author Michael Chabon’s The Escapist and drawn superheroes for Marvel and DC Comics. He created his own comic character, Billy Dogma, and is the founder of the webcomic collective ACT-I-VATE.
