The Rainbow Orchid
The Rainbow Orchid is the first adventure for Egmont's newest hero Julius Chancer, the creation of talented writer/artist Garen Ewing. Set in the 1920s, The Rainbow Orchid tells of the search for a rare and priceless mythical flower last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher and botanist, Theophrastus. Julius Chancer is a determined adventurer who travels to the forgotten valleys of India to find the orchid while the villainous Urkaz Grope does everything in his power to stop him.
The Rainbow Orchid will be available in three volumes, with book two publishing in 2010, and book three and a collected edition available in 2011.
The story has been an online comic for some time and was nominated for two National Comic awards at the Bristol Comics Festival. You can read the first few chapters of the story online here: http://www.rainboworchid.co.uk/
