The Orc's Treasure by Alex Nino
The Orc's Treasure by Alex Nino
3.0 out of 5 stars Nino art, 3 Aug 2014
An army of orcs raid and take over a humans' castle in search of treasure but don't have the same idea of what constitutes treasure. It's kind of a short simple fairy tale about culture.

Alex Nino has done a fair number of book length comics that rarely get mentioned. Adaptations of Moby Dick, Call Of The Wild, More Than Human and Tales From The One Eyed Crow; I think there are some more too.

Iím generally not fond of the idea of nostalgic retro pieces but Iíve found that the majority of my favourite horror films of recent years have been heavily inspired by or are emulating older films. To me Amer and Berberian Sound Studio were just as good as the best Italian horror films. I liked Black Swan too. A Field In England was a less obvious mixture of influences and it converted me to Ben Wheatley after being a bit lukewarm on Kill List.
Iíve heard there are even Jean Rollin and Jess Franco imitators coming out and Iíd be interested to see that too.

As well as Amer I loved Cattet/Forzaniís short films, including their contribution to ABCs Of Death (the obvious… Read more
