Heroman is a story with kid who finds an abandoned robot toy from a commercial he wanted and befriends after it gains the ability to come to life and big enough to fight. Together they combat aliens and corruption to protect their friendship and lives of people. Video is a fan created mashing of the Heroman anime and the Disney movie The Iron Giant. Character roles fit and the voice overs match the animation.
Volume one and two of the Stan Lee manga Heroman are on Amazon for pre-ordering. It would be great if the manga and novel publisher Vertical would finish Heroman with all of the volumes. Vertical is still in operation and by no means do they have a reputation of canceling great manga after so many volumes, but Heroman is something that I would enjoy and that is not a good sign like the canceled manga bellow.

Lagoon Engine Einsatz’s mangaka has not continued the story after the first volume and Flat never had its first volume distributed by Tokyopop, so those are left out. A lot from the list are favorites or at the very least manga that enjoyed much because of the mangaka. Heroman show no signs of having poor sales and has the big named American comic creator Stan Lee behind it, but don’t think for a moment that it is invulnerable. What I have learned is to show appreciation and to be vocal about what you love. Not doing so will could mean being bitter or broken.
