Tom Morello made a name for himself with his music, and this week, The Major Spoilers Podcast takes a look at his comic book endeavors by examining Orchid Volume 1.

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. Delve into the first chapter of Orchid, the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her, from the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman).

    It’S good to see a “Rodrigo book” in the Review again.
    I will probarbly pick this up soonish since i am running a Postapocalyptic Game (Apocalypse World) and do some Game design around Monsters at the moment.

    Since this book does have both i need to check it out.
