Genndy Tartakovsky’s CGI POPEYE animation test.
written by John Arcudi
illustrated by James Harren
colored by Dave Stewart
published by Image Comics
This is, hands down, my most anticipated comic of 2014. John Arcudi & James Harren have done the best B.P.R.D. comics since Guy Davis left the series.
Harren is one of the best monster-designers in the comics industry. Add Master Colorist Dave Stewart and buying this comic becomes a no-brainer.
I was reminded of how beautiful this stuff looked as I was scrolling through my Tumblr “likes”:
A tiny slice of what I’ve been working on these past couple of days. Just wrapped up on it. And now I’m going to sleep for another 20 hours.
A quick PSA: James Stokoe’s put up a new 6-page Orc Stain short story for you to read, over at his website, titled Stork Stain. As you may be able to guess, it details, documentary-style, how orcs come into being, complete with cutaway penis diagrams. If you’re an Orc Stain fan waiting for new material, I imagine this will be very welcome- I believe it was originally intended to be published in the back of issue #8, but there was no room (I mean, I believe this because it’s what Stokoe told me). I really love the white, clean backgrounds- really lets the art breathe and shine. But yeah, if your day was missing dicks- there you go; never say I didn’t do anything for you.
My life needs more Orc Stain comics!
I finally got my copies! Wanted to share a few more interior images, and there’s also a big foldout in the middle showing the big fight. Seeing everything in person is even better than I imagined! The care taken with the binding and printing is simply amazing. A big thank you to Marco and everyone else involved in the production!

Unpublished StormWatch cover by Barry Windsor-Smith, 1993.
Barry Windsor Smith on any 90s Image comic was an oddly fascinating combination. Battalion’s doing his best Conan impression… but he wouldn’t be Battalion without his Jim-Lee-riffing-Liefeld-canon!
