TOM MORELLO’S ORCHID #1 SELLS OUT OF COMIC SHOPS!
November 2nd, MILWAUKIE, OR – Demand for Tom Morello’s epic dystopian fantasy has driven comic stores across the U.S. to a complete sell out of issue #1!
From the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman), with art by Scott Hepburn (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), Orchid is the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her.
Issue #1 - When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Now, human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness, from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful, who overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortresslike cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Welcome to the world of Orchid.
Look for news about an Orchid #1 reprint on the Dark Horse Blog, but in the meantime head to your local comic shop and grab one of the final copies of #1 for only $1 before they’re gone for good!
Orchid #2 is on sale November 9th, 2011
Issue #2 - Orchid, along with her little brother and an unexpected ally named Simon, find themselves in unknown territory after they're captured and sold by slave traders. Headed toward the feared Fortress Penuel, Simon must mount an escape plan if he's going to rescue his rebel comrades and return the mysterious and powerful mask of General China to its rightful owner--a saint believed to save the oppressed from the wicked Tomo Wolfe.
