UDON Entertainment takes comfort in knowing that the characters in their books are familiar with victory. Everyone from Ryu to Mega Man know a thing or two about emerging victorious, so it should come as no surprise that another character is victorious in another way. The character affectionately referred to as the "Super-Unequaled Hero of Excellence" has notched a victory in the world of Canadian children's publishing, as Bravoman Volume 1 scored a starred review in the Best Books for Kids & Teens: Fall Edition, 2014. The committee judged titles based on excellence in writing, illustration or performance - provided in this case by UDON's Matt Moylan and Dax Gordine.
