Am I The Only Person Enjoying The Series Orchid?

I don't really hear anyone talking about Orchid, one of the new series from Dark Horse. The first three issues are out and they've been incredible. Sad thing is it looks as if I'm the only one reviewing the series. There was another person who reviewed an issue but I'm the only user to review all three so far. I'd love to hear other peoples perspective on the series. Personally I've become fascinated with this world Tom Morello has created. I had never heard of the guy before this (don't shoot me). So I had no idea of whether or not he could create compelling comics. I took a chance since the first issue was $1.00 and it was one of the best decisions I've made in the past few months (concerning comics). The artist Scott Hepburn has earned my admiration. This guy is talented. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes and ears out for him in the future. If anyone else is reading this series let me know how you're liking it.

I can't wait! I read the Preview. A -MA-ZING!

Thanks for advertising it! :")

@SC: @lykopis: Typical that it is you two already reading it. I feel even more like a simpleton.

It looks decent. Thanks for propping this. I got confused and excited thinking this was related to the Black Orchid DC/Vertigo series, one of my favorite comics ever and there was finally a new series. .-_-.

I've read the first two issues. The first issue drew me in and the second kept my attention. I'm loving the artwork and the characters of Orchid & Simon. I'm always interested in stories of a dystopian future, and the ways different writers & artists portray it. The "genetic code got smashed" is a good angle, and an opportunity for some awesome, creepy and scary creations. I can't wait to see more.

I'm still fairly new to Comicvine and not confident enough to put a review up, but I will in the future :-)

The third issue was great because it filled in readers more about the past of the world, more specifically on the character of General China. He's the one who the mask belonged to. It was a pretty interesting story. I'm looking forward to the next issue a lot.

I think that's whatI will just do. MCS doesn't even stock it and it's at like #7 or so. I'll just wait :)

Ooh, tell me if it does come out, please, if you could :P
