Comics are for everyone – even kids! I know… that’s what every USA Today article talking about comics uses right now, but in the case of BOOM! Studios upcoming Hex Vet, not only will kids get a kick out of the series, but adults should, too.
Nan and Clarion are at it again in Hex Vet: The Flying Surgery, the latest softcover original graphic novel series from Sam Davies.
It’s time for the monthly “Winged Creature Clinic” at Willows Whisper Veterinary Practice, where flying creatures from all over come to get treated. But when Glenn the Wildlife Warlock brings in an injured flying pig that looks like it may have been mistreated, panic strikes and a greater mystery unfolds.
It’s up to everyone’s favorite witches-in-training, Nan and Clarion, to keep everything under control at the chaotic clinic while Dr. Talon is away. Will Nan and Clarion save the day and keep their jobs? Or are their days at Willows Whisper numbered?
“For this book, I wanted to expand on some of the more fun elements having a magical vets surgery could include. . . like literally launching a bit of it into the sky if you need to!” said Sam Davies. “I hope it will make the world feel bigger and more exciting for readers who enjoyed the first book and wanted to know more. There’s a lot Nan and Clarion have to deal with on top of learning to care for their patients this time around. Let’s hope they can rise to the challenge!”
As I’ve noted many times over the last couple of months, BOOM! Studios is one of those publishers that is currently issuing a number of “softcover graphic novels” that appear to be more of a direct-to-trade approach to publishing that so many comic readers have been asking about for years. Will this pay off for the company? We’ll find out in December, when Hex Vet: The Flying Surgery goes on sale.
