I came across this book completely by chance, and it instantly caught my attention.
Having now read the book, I am amazed that Orc Stain is not more popular or well known.
The story and setting is incredibly unique and imaginative, I can honestly say I have never read anything quite like it before.
The world has a lot of very fun small details, and the first volume really makes me feel as though the author really has this world fully realised.
The art work is absolutely fantastic in this book too.
Everything is incredibly well designed and has a very unique aesthetic to it.
There is a huge amount of detail worked in to every image, with just as much detail put in to the background of every panel as in the characters which I find is a very rare thing in a lot of comics and graphic novels.
A friend of mine who is also very much in to comics had a quick look through the book and didn't responde to the art quite as well as I did, so I think it may be something that has niche appeal, but I implore everyone who enjoys well crafted comics and graphic novels to give it a shot.
As a quick warning, the comic does contain a few instances of nudity, both male and female, and quite a bit of gore, and some of the subject material is fairly adult orientated, but none of it is done in a realistic manner, and it is all very styled in its representation, and I think most people will really have no problem with it.
Just letting those with particularly delicate sensibilities know it may have content they are not overly fond of!
