LOS ANGELES, CA (March 26, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at ORCS! #3, the next issue in the delightfully riveting original six-issue comic book series, by cartoonist Christine Larsen (Adventure Time, By Night), about a band of misfit Orcs who set off into the great, wide Known World in search of glory and gold, but find that the real treasures were the friends they made along the way.
Bog, Pez, Zep, Utzu and Gurh are off on their own, out in the Known World, and fending for themselves for the first time, which is GREAT! After all, what numbskull would mess with a pack of Orcs?! Well, hunger might. Or enchanted mushrooms. And, of course, there are folks out in the Eerieasallhel forest who are even bigger, stronger, and more bloodthirsty than Orcs are… like Trolls? Luckily, Orcs aren’t exactly known for fighting fair!
ORCS! is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers including original series Just Beyond by R.L. Stine and Kelly & Nichole Matthews, Hex Vet by Sam Davies, Forever Home by Jenna Ayoub, Jo & Rus by Audra Winslow, Drew and Jot by Art Baltazar, Hotel Dare by Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre, RuinWorld by Derek Laufman, and Pandora’s Legacy by Bones Leopard and Kelly & Nichole Matthews.
