“A group of wannabe heroes find their powers (and problems) at the bottom of a bottle of contaminated fruit juice.”
CEO Fox Canidae isn’t having a good day. With his beautiful wife, a (reasonably) well-behaved kid, and Foxy Fruits, his bazillion-dollar fruit juice company (the backbone of Maple City’s economy), life should be great! But possible sabotage at his factory is threatening catastrophe for the entire city. Unknown to Fox, his company’s best researcher, Professor Doctor Monkey-Shine, is a mastermind with “The Pack”, a villainous gang that knows no limits. The Professor has “accidentally” dropped his own top-secret formula into the bottling line of the company’s new juice sensation. What should have been a slam-dunk, blockbuster product launch is now turning into a supernatural pandemic with Maple City’s citizens at the center. Fox knows he has to make this right; after all, it started with his company! To save his family, his company, and the city he loves so much, Fox and his family use the impacts of the contaminated juice to create an elite group of superheroes called “The Herd”. In a race against time, they must save the city and stop The Pack from spreading the pandemic beyond its borders.
The Herd is a comedic satire take on the superhero genre, with an anthropomorphic cast of characters drawn in a traditional cartoon art style, that is a fun and easy read for all ages.
