When Battling Boy's father (a warrior god) drops him on a world infested with bloodthirsty monsters, he leaves his son with nothing but a magic credit card, a trunk full of enchanted tee shirts, and instructions not to come home until he's liberated the planet from its plague of monsters. It's one kid versus an entire world full of monsters. And the monsters don't stand a chance.

Battling Boy was named a 2014 Notable Children's Book by ALSC and made the YALSA 2013 Great Graphic Novels for Teens List.
