Pigs Might Fly by Nick Abadzis

Into the Wild

Read Pigs Might Fly Online Free - All the sensible hogfolk in Pigdom Plains know that if pigs were meant to fly, they'd have been born with wings but there's no convincing Lily Leanchops. The daughter of renowned inventor Hercules Fatchops, Lily has watched her father's flying machines fail time and time again. Working in secret, Lily is trying to build what her father couldn't: an aircraft that actually works. And of course, she's following his example and employing scientific principals alone, not magic. (Well, a protection spell or two doesn't count, right?)

Lily's secret project takes on a new sense of urgency when a mysterious enemy emerges from beyond the mountains. The Warthogs are coming, and they're piloting flying machines powered by dangerous magic spells. To save Pigdom Plains, Lily must take to the skies in her own experimental aircraft and there's no time for a test run.

A wise student told me not to judge a book by its cover ... and he was so right! This was a great graphic novel with a plunky female main character.

Take Porco Posso and smash it together with the female-led movies of Studio Ghibli like Nausicaa and you get this strange, but rather delightful tale about a land of pigs, magic, and airplanes. It's exciting, but with some interesting dialogues about faith and technology that are accessible to ch...

The strong female character was my favorite part of this graphic novel. Lily (a pig) is an inventor; she's working on an airplane that could fly using science rather than magic. Although her best friend thinks some protection spells would also be useful; he's probably right about that. Lily needs...

Lily is a very Barbara Gordon-esque character; she wants to be a partner in her f...

I kinda lost interest in the middle of the story but then it became interesting again as I kept reading. I also think the small print and images made the book hard for m...
