The Herd
Volume 1 part 1
by Ryan Poirier

Can one family save the world from a pandemic… and “The Pack”

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 centre.

Fox knows he has to make this right; after all it started with his company! To save his family and the city he loves so much, he uses the impacts of the professor’s own formula to create an elite group of superheroes called “The Herd”. In a race against time Fox must save the city and stop The Pack from spreading the pandemic beyond its borders.

Ryan Poirier is an artist, illustrator, and writer with a lifelong passion for art. He graduated with a degree in Multimedia Design in 2002 and has produced work for major media companies. Today he lives with his wife in Ontario, Canada and while he pays his bills by working in the IT field; his passion continues in the lives, characters and strong satirical stories of The Herd.
