En avant-goût de la sortie du premier tome de Battling Boy en octobre prochain, Paul Pope vient de sortir un one-shot d’une trentaine de pages, The Death of Haggard West, qui constitue le dernier épisode de la série imaginaire jamais parue The Invincible Haggard West. Il ne s’agit pas d’une preview de Battling Boy, mais d’une histoire auto-conclusive qui raconte la dernière aventure du héros Haggard, combattant contre une horde de monstres tentant de détruire la ville d’Acropolis.
