In The Amulet of Sum-Tin, Boots and Pup reunite for a galaxy-hopping tale that combines hidden gems of hilarity for adult readers to enjoy with action-packed, silly goodness with which younger readers will easily connect and adore. While Book 2 begins with Boots lamenting the hum-drum, daily grind of his job at Intergalactic Unlimited, his day becomes anything but tedious. When his workplace comes under attack by a power-hungry alien warlord and his shark minions in search of an all-powerful amulet, Boots uncovers secrets hidden for decades by none other than his best friend Pup! Madcap adventures ensue as the amulet passes hands between warlord Drek, Pup's double-crossing pet worm (Leroy), and the space pirate-turned-office manager Sniffles! In what can only be described as a hilariously fun Lord of the Rings adventure, the Amulet of Sum-Tin will rule them all, and everyone is on the hunt to lay claim to it!
Writer, artist, and series creator John Yuskaitis Jr. returns in The Amulet of Sum-Tin with the same incredible talent and energy that he possessed in the series' first installment. Yuskaitis truly has a hit on his hands with the Boots & Pup series, and I cannot reiterate enough that I hope to see these lovable characters transition to other mediums, whether it be in animation, video games, or beyond. Hats off to this amazingly talented creator who has brought such a lively world (and cast of characters) to life for readers of all ages to enjoy!
For readers attending San Diego Comic-Con this year, it's important to note that Boots & Pup will offer an SDCC exclusive in the form of a collected version of Books 1 and 2! Be sure to stop by Small Press Table Q-14 to meet Yuskaitis and pick up your very own Boots & Pup adventures.
Boots & Pup Book 2: The Amulet of Sum-Tin is currently available in print through Amazon. I enthusiastically recommend picking up your copy of this supremely fun second installment, and I look forward to the future adventures of Boots, Pup, and friends!
