Orcs: The Curse #1 | Exclusive Preview
Today we have an exclusive first look at a new comic from BOOM! Studios, Orcs: The Curse #1, by writer and artist Christine Larsen. This is the sequel to Orcs, a fantasy tale about a group of rogue orcs who go off adventuring together. In Orcs: The Curse, they are back home, safe and sound, but that won’t last long. Here’s the publisher’s description:
After returning from their travels and celebrating with a dance party, a prank gone wrong inadvertently unleashes something ancient and evil. Even worse, in a tower in the middle of a dark forest, a wizard with grand, sinister plans needs a real army, and his sight turns toward the Orcish tribe…
The first issue of the four-issue series will be out on June 8, but we’ve got the preview for you right here – starting with a very scary alternatie cover by Chimichanga creator Eric Powell. Enjoy!
