Storm Kids Blurb – A young girl on a grand adventure to save her dog from the clutches of the Underworld has gone perilously wrong, and now it’s up to her to marshal a collection of mythical heroes and villains alike to set everything right in the epic conclusion of FETCH, the acclaimed graphic novel from John Carpenter Presents Storm Kids, an imprint of Storm King Comics.

FETCH Book Two: THE RESCUE is available May 8, 2024, through direct sales, including at www.StormKingComics.com, and comic shops, followed by a May 21, 2024, release at retail booksellers. 

Written by Mike Sizemore and illustrated by Dave Kennedy and Pete Kennedy, with lettering by Janice Chiang, FETCH Book Two: THE RESCUE continues the incredible story of courage, determination and love that began in Fetch Book One: The Journey, which Kirkus Reviews said was “a gateway into Greek myth” with “energetic, expressive artwork” and “a gut-wrenching cliffhanger.” Now, that cliffhanger is resolved in a graphic novel created for young readers, but which will appeal to all ages of adventure-lovers.

In Fetch Book One: The Journey, 12-year old Danni thought nothing could be worse than mourning her beloved pet dog. But her fantastical quest to bring her pup back from the Underworld goes very wrong when her little brother Sammy tags along for the adventure—the Dark Lord, Hades himself, takes Sammy hostage. Heartbroken but determined to rescue Sammy she sets off on an even more incredible final journey, but this time she’s taking her new mythological friends with her. If a Cyclops, a Minotaur, a Ferryman and the legendary hero Odysseus can’t outfox Hades then no one can. Along the way, they’re aided by the ancient gods themselves, while picking up new friends and enemies along the way in this captivating conclusion to FETCH.

“Creating exciting, vibrant and thoughtful stories for young readers has been integral to Storm King Comics since we began a decade ago, and Fetch is an incredible example of that,” said Storm King Comics founder Sandy King. “Mike Sizemore has conceived a brilliant adventure that not only introduces younger readers to classic mythology, but tells a fantastic story of strength and love that will delight younger readers and introduce them to a wider world.”
