Wow! I got an email from Dark Horse Comics, (thank you Aub “The Living Legend“) where they were asking me if I was interested in running the cover to Orchid #6. My jaw dropped. Yeah I was very stoked because we were picked to debut this cover EXCLUSIVELY here on our website. It’s a pretty cool feeling I might add.
All of us here at Comic Book Therapy are fans of Dark Horse Comics, and I know that we all love Rage Against The Machine also, and RATM is not RATM without Tom Morello, and Tom Morello is the writer of Orchid… see what I did there? Oh yeah, but all jokes aside let me show you what im talking about:
Pretty cool right? In case you dont know about Orchid, here is the premise:
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.
Tom Morello (W), Scott Hepburn (A), Dan Jackson (C), and Massimo Carnevale (Cover)

With the rebel leader’s imminent execution forcing their hand, Orchid and Simon—with a few new allies in tow—must act now or see one of their last symbols of hope destroyed. But attempting to liberate anyone from dictator Tomo Wolfe’s clutches may be the bold act that gets them all killed.
