More About the Author

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! Other jobs have included working at a mushroom farm, an airport hotel, a software company and doing loads and loads of illustrations for books, magazines, t-shirts, theatres and newspapers. He's been the editor of a local entertainments guide (5D) and a comic strip anthology (Cosmorama). He's adapted Shakespeare's The Tempest into a comic and is the writer and artist behind The Rainbow Orchid (published in English, French, Spanish, Dutch and German). He's an expert on the Second Anglo-Afghan War of 1878-1880, he's half Scottish, one-sixteenth Romany Gypsy and plays bass guitar and does karate (though not at the same time).

Review

"A winning formula . . . something truly engaging and memorable." --"Comic Heroes Magazine"

About the Author

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!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A proper hand-drawn adventure in these days of computer-generated pulp is a rarity and this tale stands head and shoulders above its contemporaries.

Garen Ewing's detailed research is evident in the care given to each panel and the historical context. You don't especially notice this as the tale draws you in and romps along, but the clear and exacting drawings do demonstrate the author's care.

A joy for young and old. This is a carefully crafted adventure over 3 volumes and I cannot wait for something new from Garen Ewing's pen.

Highly recommended!

Beautifully drawn and wonderfully old-fashioned. This book completes the trilogy and was worth waiting for. The attention to detail is incredible, even the endsheets are bursting with things to read and look at. I was also delighted to see at the end of the book an opening for further adventures. I hope we do get to read more.

Julius Chancer 18 Feb. 2013
By JEL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent saga in three issues,brings back the recollection of great works of Herge. Very nice storyline brings the reader into the world of Julius Chancer. What a nice coloring! The first issue is something a comic book fan cannot leave without reading.

I really enjoyed the complicated storyline and just had to get the other issues immediatelly!
Great comics!!

came back for more. 28 May 2014

I got these two books after giving the first one to my teenage brother as a trial run. He loved it! I'm so glad someone is keeping up the Tintin sort of idea.
