Paul Pope’s Battling Boy trailer debuts

Battling Boy is one of the year’s major releases, a long brewing hero’s journey accompanied by some of the most spectacular work of Paul Pope’s career. Boing Boing jus debuted the trailer and a 10 page preview. While book trailers are often shorter motion comics, BB work’s pretty well for the limited animation style.

Battling Boy concerns a young hero who must rescue the city of Arcopolis—as boys his age do where he comes from. It’s a story that mixes archetypes from superheroes and mythology, Kirby and Moebius. It’s about time!

Battling Boy comes out from First Second this October.

    That looks amazing.

    I am going to buy two copies, one for me and one for someone smaller than me. I mean for nieces and nephews, and not just a random dwarf.
