A new series called Orchid hits stores this October coming from Dark Horse Comics. The solicitation reads as followed:
"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 ."
I have to say I'm intrigued and am considering picking this up. The premise sounds pretty cool and the covers look great so far. I can't vouch for Morello's writing as I have little to no knowledge about him. Anyone else considering picking this series up?
