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.
