Book 2 of Batpig Series

Age 7+

Comic Strip Fiction / Graphic Novels

With great porker comes great responsibility.
Gary Yorkshire is finally getting into the swing of this whole superhero thing – saving the world from terrible villains, masterfully concealing his identity with a very small mask. But what happens when Batpig is called to battle time itself in a maths class that just won't end? Or when the city is attacked by something completely (and literally) out of this world?

It's not easy being a super-swine, but with the help of his best friends Brook the bat and Carl the fish, there's no hamburglar they can't catch.

A brilliantly funny and skilfully rendered commercial young graphic novel series, with each book containing two separate stories.
