Discover Brand New Adventures with New Faces and Familiar Figures From
Christine Larsen in June 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 10, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at ORCS!: THE CURSE #1, the premier issue of an all-new original four-issue comic book series by cartoonist Christine Larsen (Adventure Time, By Night), spinning a new adventure in the world of the beloved misfit ORCS!, with some familiar faces and a brand new set of characters who could turn out to be the greatest friends—or foes—you’ll ever encounter, available in June 2022.
The fun and fantastical ORCS! return with a brand new adventure that’s darker and more rambunctious than ever! After returning from their travels and celebrating with a dance party, a prank gone wrong inadvertently unleashes something ancient and evil. Even worse, in a tower in the middle of a dark forest, a wizard with grand, sinister plans needs a real army, and his sight turns toward the Orcish tribe…
ORCS!: THE CURSE #1 features main cover art by Larsen and variant cover by artist Eric Powell (The Goon).
