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. Delve into the first chapter of Orchid, the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her, from the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman).

Orchid, Vol. 1 is the first volume in a dystopian 12-issue run on Dark Horse comics, collecting issues #1 through #4. The world has been devastated by global warming, with Earth society devolving into fascism and neo-feudalism. Much of the Earth's surface is covered in water, and most of the land - the wild - is inhabited by terrible creatures. Orchid is a prostitute whose mother is murdered and who, along with her brother Yehzu and a stranger named Simon, is enslaved. The three of them must escape, but the stranger talks of a rescuing Anzio, as if their lives weren't in enough danger.

The covers by Massimo Carnevaleare a highlight, but the artwork and story simply didn't draw me in. There's a little too much non-linear storytelling. When non-linear is done well, it's very good, but when it's not done as well, it's not so good. One of the mysteries is the mask of General China, but even as the mystery of the mask deepens, I find myself disengaged with its story. There are some good moments in the book, and it's not a total write-off; I think some people would like it. **3/4

Oceans are rising, presumably the result of global warming. Somehow chemicals dumped into the sea cause genetic codes to be smashed, resulting in a new breed of monsters swimming to shore and eating people. The surviving humans are mostly enslaved by the elite, in the form of scientist-warlords. A dude named Simon steals a magic mask that empowers the saintly wearer (if donned by someone who isn't saintly, the wearer's head implodes). Simon befriends a prostitute named Orchid and meets a crazy old lady who lives in the Wild. Simon's goal is nothing less than revolution, class warfare that will pit the slaves against the masters, but his first step is to free Anzio, the rebel leader.

If you ignore the fact that the whole monster angle makes not the slightest bit of sense, the story has an appealing mythical quality. You also need to ignore the fact that cars and most mechanical devices haven't survived the devastation, but somehow "reflective bioheat panels" have been salvaged to illuminate tunnels and robots continue to operate factories. Assuming a powerful willingness to suspend disbelief, however, Orchid consistently entertains. The story is imaginative, the writing is a step or two above average, and the art is impressive. The coloring is especially noteworthy.

I would give this 4 1/2 stars, deducting a half star for the mutated monsters and a bit too much exposition in the opening pages, but since Amazon doesn't allow half stars, I'm rounding it back to 5 stars to reflect the originality of the story and the strength of the writing and art. I'm hooked and eager to see the next installment.

Celebrated musician Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) has created a larger-than-life post-apocalyptic graphic novel about disaster, revolution, and hair-raising monsters. Orchid, Vol. 1 is a grandiose adventure of disturbingly epic proportions. It's not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those of you who don't want to be sucker punched by a reluctant hero, a feisty (prostitute) female lead, war torn nations, and creatures who'd love to have you as a snack. This is a dark and dreadful, weary place. And I invite Dystopian fans to step into the pages and submerge themselves in Orchid's frightening world.

Meet Simon, a book smart rebel who has come into possession of an artifact used by the infamous General China. He eludes capture, only to stumble upon a boy who he just barely rescues from certain death. The young boy takes Simon to his home where we meet his mother and eventually a prostitute with the word "property" tattooed across her chest, Orchid. Because of a certain "thing" Orchid has done, trouble follows her home and she, Simon and her brother are captured. And consequently, their mother is killed. Thus begins their hair-raising adventure of survival, loss, and retribution.

Overall, Orchid Volume 1 is great for anyone looking for over-the-top fantasy adventures with not-so-happy beginnings, a lot of death, and creatures that might make you think twice about entering dark forests. The artwork, ominous tone, and worldbuilding will capture your attention from page one and take you on an emotional journey that won't let up until the ride is over. Yeah folks...it's good!
