The Rainbow Orchid


orchid01_800.jpg
The Rainbow Orchid is a webcomic published in a strip format by Garen Ewing an English freelance illustrator who devotes his spare time to creating this beautifully drawn strip in the clear line style of Yves Chaland or Herges.
This one takes a bit of getting in to but it’s worth your perseverance. The storyline is reminiscent of Conan Doyle or pulp 20’s fiction.
My major gripe with this is the strip format, which makes it difficult to get into the story. I can see that this makes it easier on the illustrator and his updates and it takes up less screen space, but at times it can be frustrating for the reader.
The villains are suitably evil but tends towards the two dimensional, but again this suits the pulp nature of the strip. The supporting characters are great, particularly William Pickle the gossip columnist.
