The only catch is, they will have to travel on the Ooorient Express, an infamous train ride that no one has returned from. This original graphic novel is filled with candy, suspicious conductors, weird science, and all the surreal adventure that has kept fans of the series coming back for more.

Pigs Might FlyPigs Might Fly GN – First Second releases a graphic novel that finds out if the old proverb is true. On the Pigdom Plains lives Lily, the daughter of renowned inventor, Hercules Fatchops. Hercules is working to invent a powered aircraft through science alone. Lily achieves the feat first, but keeps it a secret since her innovations combine the science with magic. When Pigdom faces invasion from the terrifying warthogs with more advanced aircraft and intent on destroying Pigdom, Lily will need to step up and prove that pigs can fly! The team of Nick Abadzis and Jerel Dye bring this world of magic and clashing to life with great characters and plenty of action.
