About The Book

A new breed of super-hero emerges!

Billy Farmer may look like your average teenager, but he has a big secret: he’s a super-hero! After being scratched by a radioactive leopard (happens all the time, right?), young Billy soon discovered he had the powers of the mighty jungle cat – but is there more to this power than he thinks?

Taking to the streets to fight crime as “The Leopardman”, Billy soon finds himself up against a whole horde of spooky villains intent on stopping him and hatching some pretty evil plans. Teaming up with his long lost sister, the vigilant hero “Alleycat”, the dynamic duo must uncover the fate of their family and the source of their powers – before it’s too late!

Writer Simon Furman (Transformers) and artists Laurent LeFevure (Fox Boy), PJ Holden (Department K) and Nick Roache (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) unite to breathe new life into a classic, British comics character completely reimagined for readers of today.

Part of the Monster Fun Collection, spinning from the pages of the hit UK comic, this brilliant range of books aims to inspire children to love reading through incredible stories and cool characters.
