Dark Horse Comics announces kung-fu epic ‘Orphan and the Five Beasts’

‘Orphan and the Five Beasts’ is a four-part series written and drawn by James Stokoe.

Dark Horse Comics has announced James Stokoe, of Aliens: Dead Orbit and Orc Stain fame, will be bringing us a new four-part series next March called Orphan and the Five Beasts.

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Spurred on by her master’s dying words, the adopted warrior “Orphan Mo” seeks to find and kill five former disciples who now threaten the land with corruption from their demonic powers. Part Five Deadly Venoms and part surreal grindhouse, James Stokoe brings his knack for ultra-detailed fantasy and over-the-top violence to this classic tale of revenge.
