The action is strictly played for laughs, and the crude art gives the story a goofy vibe. Chip Stone is an ordinary boy who turns into The Incredible Rockhead when danger arises. Rockhead is a rather limited superhero, with more bulk than brains—think of The Incredible Hulk in second grade, played for laughs. The action gets under way when the school bully, Troy Perkins, sees an ad on TV that offers to turn him into a super-bully. Troy takes the bait, and a mysterious man gives him an injection that turns him into Papercut, a paper super-villain—and everyone knows that paper covers rock!
The humor is fast-paced and smart-alecky; the only authority figure, a teacher, spends most of the story pinned to the wall while the kids get on with their battles. Jennings packs a lot of action into each panel, but the story is clearly drawn and easy to follow. Most pages have just two or three panels.
This is not a wordy comic—there are a lot of word balloons and text boxes, but they are short, and the pictures really carry the story. The comic includes a few nods to traditional comic books—a variant cover and a couple of fake ads—as well as vocabulary and discussion sections in the back. Created when school bully Troy Perkins injects a dangerous serum, Papercut is nearly unstoppable—after all, paper always covers rock!

The spoofed superhero elements and story of the class nerd defeating school bullies is a potent combination, even when used in a broad, over-the-top way. A realistically multicultural cast rounds everything out. I still think Rockhead is a dumb superhero. He smashes things with his head, which turns into a rock, but his head is so heavy he can't move on his own and he needs a push to get started.
In this story the villain Papercut is out to get Rockhead and as we all know paper covers rock in the old game and Rockhead may just have met his match until a new superhero comes along to help him out. And now it looks like, as in typical superhero tradition, Rockhead will now have a sidekick. Honestly, I'm not too keen on this but kids will probably find it fun especially since the book is set up like a real comic book with fake advertisements to boot!
