Some RO press releasage, if you'll indulge me
The full web version of my comic strip, The Rainbow Orchid, is going to remain online for just one more week!
Book publication of volume one is set for 4 August 2009, so after the bank holiday weekend (Tuesday 5 May) the online strip will become a preview, with certain sections removed and the full story available in print only.
You can start reading The Rainbow Orchid here:

The Rainbow Orchid is being published in three volumes by Egmont UK. It is a mystery adventure set in the 1920s, partly inspired by the works of writers such as H. Rider Haggard, Jules Verne and Arthur Conan Doyle mixed up with a very British version of the Franco-Belgian ligne claire school of graphic storytelling, luminaries of which include HergÃ©, Edgar P. Jacobs, Yves Chaland, Floc'h and Joost Swarte to name just a handful.
Bryan Talbot (Grandville, Alice in Sunderland, The Tale of One Bad Rat etc.) kindly said:
"Tightly-plotted, well-researched and beautifully drawn, this book is a real delight. Garen Ewing's mix of engaging characters, exciting old-school adventure, attractive ligne claire artwork and fluid storytelling makes The Rainbow Orchid easily one of the best graphic novels of the year."
