What good is a magic porridge pot in this day and age?

Víťa has a clear idea: he will use his magic porridge pot to become a superhero and fight crime as Porridgeman! However, the sleepy Czech village he lives in is all out of crime, and he and his two friends begin to despair. There might be more to the village than it seems, though. A secret has been lurking beneath the surface for years – one that surpasses all ordinary crime. For children and adults alike, this new graphic novel by Kateřina Čupová attractively combines seemingly incompatible genres: traditional storytelling is enhanced by superhero motifs, rural satire and Japanese influence. This book is a feast for readers, whether they like porridge or not.
