Editorial Reviews

Review

"Heroman is great material for kids. Younger, budding manga fans should have a grand time with Heroman." - Otaku USA

"Now I bet most readers are thinking… “Oh! this is a manga so the giant eyes are sooo going to annoy me”.  And this may be true.  But remember this is written by Stan Lee which is probably why this Manga feels like an American comic...I like this art a lot. It combines manga and the American comic style to create a fresh look and feel. I’ll definitely be picking up the next book!" - Stumptown Book Reviews

About the Author

Stan Lee is an American icon. Creator of many of the most famous comic characters of all time, Stan is almost as much of a character as the fictional figures he has penned in his 70-plus year career as a writer. Stan may best be known as the face of Marvel Comics. He was there from the time it was known as Atlas in the 40's and 50's, through the company's heydays in the 60's and 70's. He is credited as creator or co-creator of properties such as Spiderman, Silver Surfer, The Fantastic Four, The Avengers, DareDevil and The X-Men; many of which would become multi-media sensations. Throughout the years Stan has become more of an icon than a writer. He can be seen in many Marvel films. And he is a regular on the comic book circuit making appearances with his trademark "Excelsior!" catch-phrase.

Tamon Ohta is a veteran comic artist. He was the 2006 SquareEnix GI GanGan Award winner for comics. Heroman will be his first series published in English.

Interesting story, not your usual super hero. My only complains is that it is a little less exiting than the anime. for the most part, Manga tends to be more interesting, exiting and with more details/story than the actually anime, but in this case I prefer the anime over the manga.

Format: Paperback
WARNING: This review will most likely contain spoilers of the previous volumes in the "Heroman" manga series created by Stan Lee and Bones, illustrated by Tamon Ohta.

The fourth volume of the comic version of "Heroman" (all in five volumes) sees the protagonist, a 13-year-old boy Joey Jones, helping incognito Center City recover from the damage of the Skrugg attacks. Joey and his robot partner Heroman are busy doing "superhuman restoration," becoming a sort of urban legend.

But the government, being afraid that this "Ghost" could be a threat to the country, sends out a National Intelligence special agent Mr. Hughes for investigation, and hires Dr. Minami, a genius scientist, who secretly has a grudge against the mysterious hero.

The book covers the mid-section of the anime version of "Heroman," which is obviously the weakest part of the series. The manga version still keeps up the pace throughout in a nice way, with new characters including Joey's guitar-carrying sister Holly. The illustrator Ohta's fine artwork that gets even better than in the previous volumes is a plus.

Perhaps he could have spent more pages on the episode of Joey's "first date" with Lina or the back story of energetic Holly (who reminds us of pink-haired girl Haruko of "FLCL"). But Ohta sticks to the concept of "Heroman" as an action adventure with heart, and probably he is right. And as such "Heroman" works pretty well.
