Tom Morello’s Orchid arrives in stores October 12, 2011, but we have your early sneak peek of the first issue direct from our friends at Dark Horse Comics.
Orchid #1 (Shepard Fairey Variant cover)
Writer: Tom Morello
Artist: Scott Hepburn
Colorist: Dan Jackson
Cover Artist: Shepard Fairey
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.
When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. 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 that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Welcome to the world of Orchid.
• Each issue to be promoted with a new song by Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine!
• Featuring a variant cover by the best known and influential street artist Shepard Fairey!
The first issue is only a dollar, so it is probably worth checking out.
