From the Eisner Award-winner James Kochalka, his lovable Dragon Puncher and sidekick Spoony returns in his next book, Dragon Puncher (Book 3): Dragon Puncher Punches Back.
The 44-page book is more than ten years in the making as it pairs the duo on a new fantastical adventure in the countryside seeking out the elusive dragon.
Here is the official synopsis of Dragon Puncher (Book 3): Dragon Puncher Punches Back:
The world’s cutest book series about a cat who punches stuff just got even cuter, because this time the dragon is a cute baby one! Dragon Puncher’s human sidekick Spoony has got his fuzzy monster pajamas and a new and improved extra-long spoon, so he’s ready for anything. But Dragon Puncher mistakes a big ball of yarn for an evil dragon, which attracts the attention of a real dragon. Still, it doesn’t matter who started it. If you punch Dragon Puncher then Dragon Puncher punches back!
