Among the many amazing comics we're showcasing in our Fall Previews, Battling Boy is certainly one of the most anticipated.  It's Paul Pope's first long-form work in seven years, since his greatly acclaimed 'Batman: Year 100'.  It's the first of his books to be released by First Second, a publisher with an established track record of reaching readers beyond the normal comic-shop audience.  And it just might be his best work to date; a story of a twelve-year-old that stands up to rampaging monsters and becomes the champion of his people, a rip-roaring superhero adventure for the ages.

So, we here at MTV Geek have teamed up with our friends at First Second to bring you an exclusive six-page preview.  Read on, and get psyched to read the full story when Battling Boy hits comic shop shelves on October 8th! Read More...
