Legend of Hedgehog Boy - Wall Art

In 2007 a Boy Named Rene Capone lost his mind and we given his first deliberate jab at popular culture using subversive storytelling like a weapon with a twist. It's main goal is to empower the fallen. It is written like a love letter to anyone who has ever been lost. In first book we met a boy who fled an abusive home, as well as a wounded teddy bear named Frank. The bear and the newly-named Hedgehog Boy (he decided to wear the skinned head of an hedgehog) built a life for themselves in the woods, alongside Kitty, another runaway boy with whom Hedgehog Boy falls in love. At the end of the first part, Kitty is kidnapped by other animal-skins wearing boys lead by Possum, a boy who's hell bent on stealing what he does't have. HB and Frank decide to rescue him. In the second part, we followed the gang of characters on their journey to find out where Kitty is being held captive.. Along the way, they meet a number of other boys and girls, all with their animal totems (or in the case of a girl, with Frankenstein bolts in her neck). We left them as they began to face the group of kidnappers. The final battle between Hedgehog Boy and Possum in featured in full form in chapter 3 and it's bloody. I was surprised by how bloody it was, since in the first two parts, the fairy tale elements were far less harsh than the real-life aspects of the story. But after all, in all the great legends and fairytales, the witch does burn in her oven, the wolf is really gutted and the beast does marry the beauty (really, how awful is that fate?). So, Capone doesn't shrink from his responsibilities as a storyteller, and as Kitty says, In all the greatest books, someone always gets rescued. The question, of course, is who does the rescuing, and who gets rescued.
