I get a lot of Akira vibrations while reading it (as far as the outlandish-yet-familiar nature of it, and some of the extreemes), I get Miyazaki vibes from it (as far as the wonder placed upon the animals [from mounts to head-dresses...Zazu was one of my favorite characters and he's a witch's hat!], yet its entirely its own work. I am excited for the series and I'm glad to know someone makes a living creating something that is this wholly its own. This is champion work, and I've done everything I can to put it in the hands of the friends I know who love graphic novels/comics/fantasy/anime. They have all loved it as well.
But beware: While not a XXX title, and while not a big joke to get you to look at them, this book contains some pen-15. The most non-erotic pen-15 ever. I guess its the next punk frontier perhaps (now that drugs and violence are passe)...
A warning: This book isn't for kids. A decent portion of the characters are very focused on cutting off other's Gronchs. Look at the cover and you will see one thing that is highly valued among Orcs in this universe.
The artwork is on par with what I used to see in 70's era Heavy Metal comics. It is unique stylized look that doesn't fall in the standard mold of comic art.
The storyline is offbeat and quite creative. It is also an adult comic but it doesn't pander to a certain audience by making it erotic. You will see a boobie or two and some dude parts, but its not there to pander to the hairy palm crowd. It is just part of the story.

This book is great. If it's got the words James Stokoe written on the front of it, it's worth buying.Published 13 months ago by Slade Doomy
Very entertaining, great artwork. The book is poorly bound though, began falling apart upon first opening. But it isn't something a little tape and delicate usage couldn't handle.Published 17 months ago by Steven Anzardo
Amazing stuff. Filled with the fine detail of someone truly in love with their creation as opposed to just blowing through twenty pages to get to some Big Reveal. Read morePublished 19 months ago by S. Currie
Awesome piece of work. Takes you out of the box, and shoots you to another place completely new. To see life through the eyes (I mean, eye, singular) of an orc was enlightening.Published 21 months ago by João Possani
excellent, detailed artwork. Recommend this to all graphic novel lovers. Would love to get the entire series, and follow the storyline to completion. Good shtuff!Published on November 10, 2013 by Kaimi Keohokalole
So, the guy who wrote this comic is obviously insane--an awesome world, killer artwork, and a fast-paced story make this a book that you should definitely read.Published on October 5, 2013 by Wind Lothamer
