Monsters and Demigods: Paul Pope’s Battling Boy

This review is not for the youngest reader who will pick up and read this book. He or she will do that regardless of what you or I say about it, because comics should be like that. They should be adopted by the readers themselves, away from the grown-ups, and that is the way of things. These books are for them. So I’m writing this for fellow parents and uncles and aunts and grandparents out there who have grown up with great comics around them, who have probably recognized that great comics for kids are now being released few and far between. To them, I want to wholeheartedly recommend picking this book up for their younger family members, and of course, for themselves.
