Description

Winner of the Young People's Comic Award at the 2013 British Comic Awards

The most gripping new comic book series since Tintin.

Follow our hero, Julius Chancer, as he embarks on a hazardous quest for the rainbow orchid - a mythical flower last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher, Theophrastus, and steeped in legend. His epic journey takes him from 1920s Britain to the Indian subcontinent and its mysterious lost valleys.

Garen Ewing's stunning graphic novel series blends classic storytelling and historical drama with cinematic artwork in the same vein as the great Herge.

About Garen Ewing

Garen Ewing's The Rainbow Orchid series was first serialised on his website at rainboworchid.co.uk and later self-published before it was picked up by his publishers, Egmont. Garen's books, which follow the adventures of Julius Chancer, are reminiscent of the world-famous Adventures of Tintin by Herge and they have gained critical acclaim among the comic book community. With over a million hits to his website prior to publication, his graphic novels are set to become future classics. Garen's love of drawing and writing goes back to when he was very young, and had to spend a lot of time in hospital, so his mum supplied him with plenty of comics to read, and pencils and blank paper to draw with, and he's been making comics ever since!
