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

I just love this book and it is so good to find someone producing a carefully and well drawn book that knocks spots off the computer-generated pulp that is out there. Read morePublished on 16 Oct. 2009 by Caspar
