A boy-meets-ghoul story at 100 miles-per-hour!
Ken Takamoto is a wannabe racer stuck at home for the summer, with only his mother for company. Dante Willow is a ghost stuck in the car he crashed while racing his rival twenty years ago.
When they meet by chance, Ken has the answer to both their problems: enter the local racing league Hex Americana and win the annual Grand Prix. If they win, Dante can pass on to the afterlife and Ken can keep Dante's fixed-up car to go anywhere he wants. What starts as a simple plan becomes a wild summer full of witches, gnomes, feelings, magical chickens, and more as they prepare for the big race.
Will Ken and Dante finish first? Can they even make it to the finish line? And more importantly, what happens when this racing duo blooms into something more?
Bursting to the brim with crazy monsters, blazing automotive action, deep-rooted mysteries, and small-town secrets, HEX AMERICANA is the race everyone’s dying to win!

Hex Americana is an entertaining ride on every page and only partly because of the race car driving. Set in a fantasy version of America (chicken-people, witches, ghosts, friendly monsters of all kinds), the story follows Ken’s adventure into the world a racing, love, and reckoning with your past. While definitely a light and fun tale, the characters deal with real issues in a meaningful way. And the art is filled with incredible looking people and action sequences that will keep you flipping back to marvel at the creativity of the world of the story.
