Take a look at color pages from Paul Pope's <i>Battling Boy</i>

Artist Paul Pope and colorist Nathan Schreiber have released what I think is our first look at color pages from Battling Boy, Pope's highly anticipated -- and much-delayed -- graphic novel from First Second Books.

Announced in 2007, Battling Boy centers on the son of a god (or perhaps superhero) who's sent down from the top of a mountain by his father to rid the continent-sized city of Monstropolis of the monsters that plague it. This is the fabled comic with "horrible, Grimm's fairytale, Beowulf-ish monsters" and 50-page fight scenes.

It was suggested back in March that Battling Boy initially could be serialized online, presumably as part of First Second's TBC/To Be Continued initiative. However, no additional information has been released.
