James Stokoe Kung-Fu Epic ‘Orphan and the Five Beasts’ Coming to Dark Horse Comics

This coming March, the mighty James Stokoe (Aliens: Dead Orbit, Orc Stain) is coming out swinging at Dark Horse with a brand-new kung-fu epic ORHPAN AND THE FIVE BEASTS.

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.

Speaking about the four-part series, Stokoe said “If there’s one consistent thing more than any other that’s been an influence on my work throughout the years, it has to be the incredible worlds and adventure stories found in classic Hong Kong action films. With Orphan and the Five Beasts, I’m looking to bring that love forward in a new fantasy comic that pays homage to the great films that have given me so much joy in life, while hopefully bringing something unique to the shelves.”

Featuring the first of four interlinked covers by Stokoe himself, Orphan and the Five Beasts #1 hits comic shops and digital platforms on March 17th 2021.
