Tom Morello’s ‘Orchid’: “In the days when humans could read”

Any news from Tom Morello should be attempted, and this one’s no exception. Now he has a comic called Orchid, published for Dark Horse Comics. With art by Scott Hepburn (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) this is the story about a young prostitute who discover the real true about his role in society.

Alternate #1 cover by Shepard Fairey

This is Dark Horse description: 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.

Any Morello fan should get this, even those not familiarized with comics, and with no intentions in doing it, this first issue will be a collector’s idem, and another prove of Morello’s talent (as if needed, I know).

Here’s an interview with Morello’s in the LA Times, and here the Rolling Stones article with some images.
