Dark Horse Comics and famed Star Wars writer, Cavan Scott join forces for an all-new, creator-owned comic series.
The Ward is a new comic series from writer Cavan Scott and artist Andres Ponce. This new series is set in a secret hospital, named St. Lilith's, where supernatural creatures come to heal. Unfortunately, St. Lilith's is underfunded, and the staff is overworked. Just as Dr. Nat Reeves thinks she can leave this place behind, a wounded woman with a tail enters the facility and changes her life. The Ward is said to be the perfect read for those who love the supernatural, the TV series Supernatural, iZombie, and Grimm.
“I’ve always been fascinated in ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the most incredible of situations,” says Scott, “and that certainly describes the indomitable Nat Reeves as she plunges headfirst into a shift in the world’s only emergency room for supernatural entities.
From murderous minotaur to gelatinous cubes with severe cases of food poisoning, no two patients are alike at St. Lilith’s. However, as we know from shows like E.R. and Grey’s Anatomy, the biggest dramas come from the lives of the medical staff themselves, and St. Lilith’s is no different.
As Nat navigates everything from the troubled birth of a giantess’s baby to a growing plague among the preternatural patients, she must also balance her life as a mother with the professional jealousies she faces every day in her job. Can she keep her work at St. Lilith’s a secret while protecting those closest to her?”
The Ward is set to hit both physical and digital comic shops on June 8th.
