James Stokoe looks to be going all out with his upcoming kung-fu mini-series, Orphan and the Five Beasts from Dark Horse Comics.

Orphan and the Five BeastsSpurred on by her master’s dying words, the adopted warrior “Orphan Mo” seeks to find and kill five former disciples who now threaten the land with corruption from their demonic powers. Part Five Deadly Venoms and part surreal grindhouse, James Stokoe brings his knack for ultra-detailed fantasy and over-the-top violence to this classic tale of revenge.

“If there’s one consistent thing more than any other that’s been an influence on my work throughout the years, it has to be the incredible worlds and adventure stories found in classic Hong Kong action films,” said James Stokoe in press release from Dark Horse Comics. “With Orphan and the Five Beasts, I’m looking to bring that love forward in a new fantasy comic that pays homage to the great films that have given me so much joy in life, while hopefully bringing something unique to the shelves.”

Orphan and the Five Beasts is a four-issue mini-series that is scheduled to arrive on March 17, 2021.
