Cavan Scott and artist Andres Ponce open Dark Horse Comics’ The Ward this June, inviting monsters and creatures of all types to St. Lilith’s hospital.
The new four issue mini-series takes place in St. Lilith’s, a secret hospital for supernatural creatures, which still has all the problems and intrigue of a normal medical center, and as Scott says “…the biggest dramas come from the lives of the medical staff themselves and St. Lilith’s is no different.”
Scott says that he has “…always been fascinated in ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the most incredible of situations and that certainly describes the indomitable Nat Reeves as she plunges head first 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.”
