Characters commonly thought of as dispenable have recently been getting their due. Furthering this tradition of Jon Scalzi’s Red Shirts or Stan Nicholl’s Orcs we now have Orc Stain by James Stokoe, and it is awesome. This story begins with a nameless orc (because all orcs are nameless) who is being hunted after an encounter with a former partner turned bloody and disabling. Make no mistake, by adding more depth to the orcs does not mean Stokoe makes them the good guys. The creatures here are smelly, mean-spirited and drug-addled the way orcs should be. This comic is equal parts hilarious, vulgar and action-packed. Stokoe’s illustrations are meticulously detailed and the final pages look beautiful. It is a rare treat that he writes, draws, inks, colors and letters the entire comic himself when a majority of comics are made on “assembly line” nowadays. - Jeremy
