Battling Boy: the new superhero comic by Paul Pope

I go to the comic store roughly once a month. Usually I walk around the store aimlessly in the hope of finding that inspiring story that I didn’t know exists: such as The Watchman, Akira, The Incal. usually I leave empty handed. That was not the case a few weeks ago. Paul Pope creator of 100% and Heavy Liquid, among others, has come out with a new book.

Pope’s line work reminds me of the golden age of Marvel. Flash Gordon, Jack Kirby-style mixed in with a bit of Silver Surfer flare. This high energy thrill was consumed and only has me hungry for more.
