A Super Hero graphic novel

Battling Boy
Battling Boy

By: Paul Pope

Genre: Juvenile graphic novel

Pages: 208

Published: 2013

Read: March

2 out of 5

This is not my type of graphic novel. I will admit that I have been enjoying them more than before, however like books a reader must find their genre. Super hero graphic novels are not mine. I did think the unique concept that Battling Boy’s different super powers depended on which of his 12 animal shirts he wore, even though he never wore all 12 L. An owl gave him wisdom and the fox shirt made him sly and silent on the move.  I was confused and bored with the rest of the story, but I can see how boys would enjoy the novel and the vibrant pictures.  I would recommend this graphic novel to reluctant boy readers, between 8 and 15, that are fascinated with super heroes.
