Vix Reynard and the League of Astonishing Vermin

 Kory Merritt brings together characters from classic children’s books to create Vix Reynard and the League of Extraordinary Vermin. Here, familiar faces from the works of E. B. White, Rudyard Kipling, Beatrix Potter, and additional folk and fairy tales take on the role of unlikely heroes fighting to save their world.
  
 The year is 1951, and there’s a dark tension in the air. Heroes of legend, some thought only to exist in fairytales, must battle against an evil that threatens the world. Vix Reynard, a wily woman with a proud history of impulsive, daredevil deeds, is given the choice of a lifetime to join the League of Extraordinary Vermin. Her choice may decide the fate of the world, not to mention the League itself.
  
 Kory Merritt’s series of children’s stories, collectively known as The Lost Side of Surburbia, began as cartoons drawn for SUNY Brockport’s The Stylus. After winning the John Locher Memorial Award in 2007, he began work on The Lost Side of Surburbia, moving to GoComics.com in 2011.
