The Rise of Aurora West Reviews


"Before she fought alongside Battling Boy for the safety of Acropolis, Aurora West was a teenaged apprentice to her father, the monster hunter/science detective Haggard West, as chronicles in this graphic novel prequel . . . Likely to please Aurora fans from the earlier title, this graphic novel also stands alone, giving readers a bright new heroine to admire." --BCCB

"Pope's lauded Battling Boy takes place in the monster-ridden city of Acropolis, and this prequel, featuring feisty Aurora, the daughter of Acropolis' Bruce Wayne-like hero Haggard West, fills in the backstory of the city and its monster infestation . . . fans of Battling Boy will be eager to get their mitts on this thrilling installment featuring a compelling teen girl hero." --Booklist

"Die-hard fans of the previous work will definitely want to pick up this book." --School Library Journal

"This feels like a very different direction for the characters, and it's a thrilling one; expect readers to clamor for the next installments of this clever spinoff." --Kirkus Reviews

"Paul Pope's delightful and original Battling Boy is the adventure of the year!" --Jeff Smith, Eisner Award-winning author of Bone on Battling Boy

"Full of energy, precision, and pure kick--not to be missed." --Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies on Battling Boy

"A new generation hero." --Entertainment Weekly on Battling Boy
