Tom Morello Closes Out 'Orchid' Comic Book Series With a Saturday Signing in Anaheim!
A A

Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has been busy penning his Dark Horse Comics series Orchid since it debuted at San Diego Comic Con in July 2011. The twelve-issue run that centered on a dystopian theme described at the onset as "Lord of the Rings meets Battle of Algiers" comes to a close, but not before the rebel rocker visits Beach Ball Comics in Anaheim for a signing event!

Morello, who will be joined by Orchid illustratorScott Hepburn, has also recorded a score for the series. Beach Ball Comics tells the Weekly that rebel rocker isn't bringing a guitar with him to Anaheim on Saturday, though, just a signing pen. Either way, the soundtrack to Orchid will be playing at the store and the event is going to kick ass all the same!

The weekend event will be a nice boost for the comic book store which suffered a break-in Tuesday with key, distinctive comics stolen from a display case. Anaheim police have apprehended a suspect and all but five comic books have since been recovered.

In addition to the signing itself, Beach Ball Comics is also offering guaranteed backstage passes to a private after party with Morello and Hepburn for the first twenty people in line. Starting at 3 p.m., thirty other lucky fans will win the rest via raffle, so get there early!  For everyone else, the two-hour signing itself is free and open to the public.

Orchid Signing and Wrap party with Tom Morello and Scott Hepburn at Beach Ball Comics, 3024 W Ball Rd Ste G, Anaheim. (714) 826-6127; Sat., 5-7 p.m. Free!
