BOOM! Studios announce original graphic novel "Hex Vet"
Have you ever wondered where a witch's enchanted cat or a dragon would go for medical treatment? If so, then BOOM! Studios have the series for you: Hex Vet, an upcoming graphic novel from Sam Davies.
Published under BOOM!'s KaBOOM imprint, Hex Vet follows two veterinarians in a world where magic and enchanted creatures are commonplace. They'll learn about friendship and responsibility while helping out an endless stream of magical creatures, and it all sounds so charming and whimsical that I'm tempted to just pre-order a copy right now.

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 1, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce HEX VET, an all-new hardcover original graphic novel from cartoonist Sam Davies (Stutterhug). In a world where magic is a part of daily life, Nan and Clarion are determined to be the best veterinarian witches of all time. Between life, animals, and magic, these two witches will soon realize that they have a lot to learn—and not just about how to help a ghost cat have kittens. This story will take Nan and Clarion on fun adventures where they will get to learn more about each other, their strengths as veterinarians, and their equal passion for magical animals. Hopefully they’ll be up to the challenge of running a clinic, saving lives, and staying on their boss’ good side!
“HEX VET is centered around a magical veterinary practice which means I get to draw as many strange animals I can think of AND include a lot of witchy nonsense,” said Sam Davies. “I'm in heaven. Unusual pets are a running theme in my webcomics work, so it’s exciting to expand that into a full story with characters who are totally unprepared to deal with all the creature troubles I'm going to throw at them.”
HEX VET is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ critically acclaimed KaBOOM! imprint, publisher of world-class licensed series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, Peanuts, and Rugrats along with original series like Ruinworld by Derek Laufman, Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes and Selina Espiritu and The Deep by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer.
“HEX VET is the perfect comic for anyone who’s wondered where witches take their cats when they snag a tooth or who takes care of a magical girl’s familiar,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Sam brings an incredible amount of heart, compassion and thrills to the story of what it means to truly care for the life surrounding us, especially when there’s magical surprises around every corner!”
Hex Vet will hit comic shops and other retailers this December.
