Orcs #6 | Exclusive Preview
Today, we’re the first blog to give you a preview of Orcs #6, the final issue in Christine Larsen’s series about a band of Orcs who go off into the wider world in search of fame and fortune. Here’s the executive summary:
The ORCS! have found themselves at a mysterious door, but what lies beyond it? Is it destiny… or, uh, doom? With an ominous, ancient death temple looming above them, Bog, Zep, Pez, Utzu, and Gurh have a shot to score the haul that’ll let them pay their way home again! Or at least get payBACK (you know, revenge!) on the king who banished them!
Orcs is published by BOOM! Studios under their KaBOOM! kids’ imprint. We’ve run previews of Orcs #4 and Orcs #5, in case you want to catch up. Orcs #6 comic will be available on July 14, and the graphic novel collecting the entire series will be available in November. Enjoy!
