Clan Apis

Clan Apis

by Jay Hosler

Paperback(New Edition)



"Although years of rock 'em, sock 'em adventures have branded comic books as lightweight entertainment for children, Jay Hosler has staged a valiant defense of the medium. In his hands, cartooning becomes exciting education. Clan Apis ingeniously reworks the plot conventions of the musty old action comic as Hosler sneaks a lot of lessons about bee anatomy, behaviour, and ecology into his brisk story." - Discover Magazine
