She's had a tough life and she's used to being pushed around, but there's just enough fight in her to want to do something. If Orchid sounds complicated, it's not. There's just such a wealth of information and background in this story. Tom Morello Rage Against the Machine crafted this world and started the story ages after everything went to shit. Although this is a limited series, there are so many other stories that can be told. Morello touches on a bit of the history, but each tidbit could be blown out to a full fledged story.
Whether it's the creation of the cannibal barges, the fall of government as countries were engulfed in water, or just how Tomo Wolfe rose to power, there's a lot more than what we're told. Although the world is desolate and depressing, Scott Hepburn sure made it look good. There's so much care and detail provided in each panel. The character designs are fantastic and spot on. You can look at a shot of Orchid or Simon and get an idea of who they are without them saying a word. Where Hepburn really excels, though, are the animals.
The gene pool became polluted along the way and what came out of the water was some scary stuff.
Mother Nature did not react well to the world ending. These creatures are strange combinations of existing animals but at a much larger scale. You've got bears with huge scorpion tales, bird head on an elephant's body with a dozen legs, and more. The creepiest is this part machine, part wolf that serves Gletkin, an officer in Wolfe's army.

It has these massive mechanical jaws and its tail is like a long paintbrush drenched in oil. Regardless of the creature, these are not things you'd ever want to run into in real life. As Morello is an incredibly talented musician, he's created a soundtrack for each issue of Orchid. Fans picking up the single issues or this trade paperback will receive access to these tunes.
The real theme of Orchid is hope and finding it when all else is lost. The people in this story haven't seen it in so long that when it does come around again, they don't recognize it. It takes some time for them to realize what it is that they've encountered and what it means. They're just so used to being put down. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful that overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortress-like cities.
