New Comics Day Spotlight: Orc Stain #7 by James Stokoe


Today is Wednesday, which is significant for a couple of reasons. One reason being that I’ll be getting my cheeks Botoxed once again behind the local 7-11, and the other more important reason being that it’s NEW COMICS DAY! Each week I’ll be focusing on one of the new releases hitting the stands that I feel is worth talking about.

This week we enter the bizarre, colorful, and intricately grotesque world of James Stokoe’s Orc Stain! The first thing that hits you about this comic is the beautiful and ultra-detailed line work and lush, eye popping use of color. James Stokoe is responsible for all of the artwork in addition to the writing and lettering of this comic. So essentially he does it all, and you can understand why a book this gorgeous isn’t published on a regular monthly basis. It’s more than worth the wait.

Here’s a quick introduction to the story of Orc Stain taken from the back cover of the trade paperback, “For a million millennia, the world has cracked and convulsed under the indomitable mob of the orc. Savage, bloodthirsty creatures, they are without number, staining nearly every corner of the globe. The mighty Orc Tzar, newest leader of the mob, marches ever north to find the lost organ of a forgotten god. Only a lone one eyed orc with a mysterious gift can find the key to breaking the cycle forever.”

The first issue introduces us to the protagonist of the series, One Eye, a savvy safecracker whose special skills prove to go beyond disabling the common “Gurpa’s” defenses. A “Gurpa” is like a sort of organic treasure chest that looks like a great big Kodiak cookie jar. It’s one of the many unique inhabitants of the world of Orc Stain, like soda cans that spring to life and strange crabs that you can smoke for a good high! Subsequent issues move along with fast-paced action and new characters are introduced along the way. I look forward to continuing my journey in James Stokoe’s warped, rich world and I encourage all of you to take the leap as well!

Orc Stain is published whenever it’s ready by Image Comics and is intended for Mature Readers.
The trade-paperback, collecting the first 5 issues, is currently out of print, but Comixology sells the digital version of the comic here.
