But Super Max has defeated the villain over and over again. This time is different. This time, Dr. Malevolent's plan works . . . and he turns the handsome hero into a tiny tuber!

Artur Laperla is an author and illustrator who lives in Spain.


Laperla’s parody strikes an easy comedic tone from the first page, and its wackiness unspools effortlessly. Full-color panel artwork combines caricature with handsomely drafted backgrounds of cityscapes and spaceships, and Laperla nails Super Potato’s expressions of rage and exasperation. A promising start to a series with appeal to strong and reluctant readers alike.

Publishers Weekly

The art punches things up considerably, with well-constructed, flowing page layouts, humorously extreme reaction shots, and a stark and vibrant color palette that feels both classical and unique. If Loony Tunes was in the superhero business, this is something it might have baked up. A superhero romp with some age-appropriate examples of heroic behavior and a nonstop torrent of gags that work a decent portion of the time.
