The exciting first installment in The Rainbow Orchid, an ambitious blend of classic storytelling and cinematic artwork in which adventure, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly intertwined

Welcome to the biggest new adventure in comics—a spectacular epic featuring innumerous surprises, brilliant characters, and all the nostalgia of an old-school adventure tale. In Volume One, follow the story's hero—Julius Chancer, the adventurous assistant to historical researcher Sir Alfred Catesby-Grey—as he embarks on a hazardous quest for the rainbow orchid, a mythical flower steeped in legend that was last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus. Julius' epic journey takes him from 1920s Britain to the Indian subcontinent and its mysterious lost valleys.

About the Author:

Garen Ewing is a graphic designer and illustrator, as well as the author of a number of popular online comics, including Charlie Jefferson and the Tomb of Nazaleod.

From Booklist:

This droll and beautifully painted adventure plays on the Tintin canon while offering an original adventure tale. A large cast of characters is brought together in a Roaring Twenties England by the promise of a fortune to be won in an orchid competition. A Hollywood actress, her agent, an antiquarian, an overeager reporter, a scholar and his assistant (Julius Chancer), and a number of evildoers with vaguely Russian names seek the titular flower while trying to elude and outpace their competitors across the Channel and into Europe toward India. Many tongue-in-cheek references to Tintin appear but in no way hobble the energy and drama of this tale: the indefatigable but crude reporter; identical twin daughters of a stunt pilot; and the apple-cheeked Julius, whose black hair lies pasted in an unstirringly dead quiff to his forehead. There are also sly, and very funny, references to social-class oddities, sexual orientation, and even clowns. While this is a perfect combination of send-up and memorial to Hergé, it’s also a strong work even for those have managed (how?) to have never met Tintin. --Francisca Goldsmith
