Joey wants to be a hero, but he's just an orphan who works day and night to take care of himself and his grandmother. After seeing a commercial for a toy robot, he desperately wants one, thinking the robot will give him the strength to change. The only one he can afford, though, is a broken one a rich school bully threw in the trash. When Lina, a pretty cheerleader who's always been nice to him, is kidnapped, will Joey and his toy robot be able to become heroes and rescue her?


Heroman was published in English by Vertical from October 30, 2012 to July 23, 2013.

This is pretty much something that's only going to interest younger readers. The storyline is classic (kid becomes the one to save everybody), but for those of use who are familiar with this kind of story, it's going to feel very boring and cliche and by-the-book. There's no ecchi or strong violence to appeal to readers who want some edginess. There's no deep character development. It's just standard hero story material, ideal for preteens. If I had read this when I was eight, I would have probably thought this was fabulous. Now, not so much.

I give it ...
