Guitarist Tom Morello made a name for himself with such musical acts as Rage Against The Machine and The Nightwatchman, and next month he's releasing Orchid, his first comic book. Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics. Here's the trailer for this tale of post-apocalyptic revolution.
You can read more about Orchid in our San Diego Comic-Con interview with Morello. The first issue is in stores Wednesday, October 12 for $1. Here's a synopsis from Dark Horse:
From the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) with art by Scott Hepburn (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), Orchid is the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her.
When the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities. Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Welcome to the world of Orchid.
