Praise for Battling Boy Paul Pope's delightful and original Battling Boy is the adventure of the year! --Jeff Smith, Eisner Award-winning author of Bone Full of energy, precision, and pure kick--not to be missed. --Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies A new generation hero. -- Entertainment Weekly


Before she fought alongside Battling Boy for the safety of Acropolis, Aurora West was a teenaged apprentice to her father, the monster hunter/science detective Haggard West, as chronicles in this graphic novel prequel . . . Likely to please Aurora fans from the earlier title, this graphic novel also stands alone, giving readers a bright new heroine to admire. BCCB Pope's lauded Battling Boy takes place in the monster-ridden city of Acropolis, and this prequel, featuring feisty Aurora, the daughter of Acropolis' Bruce Wayne-like hero Haggard West, fills in the backstory of the city and its monster infestation . . . fans of Battling Boy will be eager to get their mitts on this thrilling installment featuring a compelling teen girl hero. Booklist Die-hard fans of the previous work will definitely want to pick up this book. School Library Journal This feels like a very different direction for the characters, and it's a thrilling one; expect readers to clamor for the next installments of this clever spinoff. Kirkus Reviews Paul Pope's delightful and original Battling Boy is the adventure of the year! Jeff Smith, Eisner Award-winning author of Bone on Battling Boy Full of energy, precision, and pure kick--not to be missed. Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies on Battling Boy A new generation hero.
