Monday 05 July 2010 The Rainbow Orchid Volume Two. I am excited. Fact.

I am excited. Fact. Today is launch day for Volume 2 of The Rainbow Orchid, a terrifically splendid comic by my long-time-comics-chum-although-we've-never-actually-met-and-that's-quite-normal-in-this-modern-age Garen Ewing. I've just ordered a signed copy direct from the man himself, and I'd strongly encourage you to do the same. Of course, if you don't have Volume 1, you'd probably best grab a copy of that too. And perhaps another for your kids.

The Rainbow Orchid Vol. 2

This shameless hucksterism may seem a little out of character, but right from the off when I read the first episode it was clear to me that this could be something that would appeal to, if I can put it this way, normal people as well as comics readers. I've read a lot of comics that I love, but I wouldn't give to someone who wasn't comics-literate. The Rainbow Orchid is not such a beast - it's a really good comic that (I'm trying to avoid the word "accessible" or "appeals") anyone can enjoy. Alternatively, anyone can read and enjoy it, but it has the comics-literary chops to thoroughly satisfy comics-nerds like me and m'chum Richard. I not only admire Garen's skill, but his patience and dedication in seeing The Rainbow Orchid out in the shops, where it should be.

Look, if you don't believe me, go and read the extended preview ...
