Return To The World Of Christine Larsen’s ‘Orcs!’ In New Series
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has announced an all-new original four-issue comic book series, Orcs!: The Curse by cartoonist Christine Larsen for June 2022.
‘The fun and fantastical ORCS! return with a brand new adventure that’s darker and more rambunctious than ever! 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…’
“As the second book of the series, The Curse introduces new allies (and reunites us with some old friends) as the tribe battles a wizard’s wrath, unleashes an ancient evil, discovers horrible secrets, and fights for its future. Of course, along the way, there’s plenty of guts and glory,” said Larsen.
“Get ready for a brand new adventure in the world of the ORCS! We’re back to join our misunderstood gang of impromptu heroes for more trouble-making and misadventure across the Known World, but we’ll also meet new, unfamiliar faces and creatures, and come up against new threats,” added Sophie Philips-Roberts, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “If you thought you’d seen the worst trouble these orcs could get into before, it’s nothing compared to what’s facing them in . . . The Curse!”
Print copies of Orcs!: The Curse #1 will be available for sale in June 2022 at local comic book shops.
