"Creators Kniivila (Year of the Dog) and Vuong (The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn) present a funny, uncommonly charming mash-up of martial arts, superhero, and sci-fi comics. The rare all-ages title that will entertain, and perhaps even enthrall, adolescents and adults alike." --- Library Journal (Starred Review)

When a machine boy falls to earth, his heart is awoken for the first time. As he learns to be human, he struggles to override his own programming and become a hero, from rising stars Tri Vuong and Irma Kniivila.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Machine Boy!

When Machine Boy falls from the sky into the domed city of Mega 416, he leaves a wake of destruction in his path... until Karate Grandpa is able to turn on his heart. Now, Machine Boy wants nothing more than to become a hero! Whether he is fighting giant bugs in the school's basement, rescuing cats from trees, or making the perfect spaghetti sauce, Machine Boy is always looking for the best way to help others. But when his heart begins to interact dangerously with other debris from space, Machine Boy wonders if he can be a power for good after all.

Rising stars Tri Vuong and Irma Kniivila create a funny and engaging all-ages adventure that asks-can you override your own programming?

Included in Everyday Hero Machine Boy, is a two-page READER'S GUIDE. The full TEACHER'S GUIDE is available on SkyboundComet.com.
