BOOM! Studios today announced an all-new original four-issue comic book series, ORCS!: THE CURSE by cartoonist Christine Larsen (Adventure Time, By Night), spinning a new adventure in the world of the beloved misfit ORCS!, with some familiar faces and a brand new set of characters who could turn out to be the greatest friends—or foes—you’ll ever encounter.
The Fun and Fantastical world of ORCS! returns
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…
A Harvey Award-nominated cartoonist, Christine Larsen has illustrated licensed comics for Adventure Time, Samurai Jack, Regular Show, and Kung Fu Panda; while creating the original series ORCS! and co-creating By Night with Boom Studios. A litany of independently published work also adorns her curriculum vitae. Her illustrations have been hung at the Society of Illustrators. Meanwhile, in the bowels of Philadelphia, she teaches classes in the mystic arts of comic making and illustration. Larsen resides with the rest of her small goblin clan in a north Philadelphia row home.
Larsen told the Comics Industry:
“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.”
While BOOM! Studios editor, Sophie Philips-Roberts echoed with:
“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.
“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 (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.
