The Latest Digital Graphic Novels From Sequential – The Rainbow Orchid & More

Sequential have updated their library of digital graphic novels this week – including the excellent Rainbow Orchid!

Rainbow Orchid CompleteThis week, SEQUENTIAL has released The Rainbow Orchid, the epic adventure by the award-winning writer and illustrator Garen Ewing, which today was awarded the 2013 Young People’s Comic Award at Thought Bubble festival.

The Rainbow Orchid is an all-ages adventure published by Egmont, following historical researcher Julius Chancer’s thrilling quest to find a mythical flower in the lost valleys of India. It has received huge praise, with The Observer calling it “one of the most satisfying comics around” and including it in the Best Graphic Novels 2012 list, The Independent hailing it as “a British Tintin” and The Financial Times commenting, “[The] setting is meticulously rendered, the storyline intricate and engrossing … Ewing has crafted something at once reverential and joyous that has a life of its own.”

SEQUENTIAL has released Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of The Rainbow Orchid plus The Complete Rainbow Orchid, a collection of all three volumes which features bonus content and special pop-up pages with Garen Ewing’s own annotations and sketches.

The Young Person’s Comic Award is part of the British Comic Awards and was voted for by schoolchildren across the UK.

A Disease of LanguageAlso released on SEQUENTIAL this week is A Disease of Language by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell. Originally published in 2005 by Knockabout, it brings together the studies of magic and rebirth The Birth Caul and Snakes and Ladders, plus an interview with Alan Moore from Egomania.

The collection has been hailed as one of Alan Moore’s most important works. Review site Ready Steady Book called the works “ecstatic monologues on the implications of art and the imagination” and The Comics Journal commented, “Moore is speaking in tongues here — as a student of art, history, literature, modern theoretical science; as a post-grad in mysticism; as a day laborer up to his armpits in the world’s treasures and detritus; as enthralled paramour.”

A Disease of Language is available for 50% off the print price.

Other recent releases on SEQUENTIAL include a free biography comic of Alan Moore, a free collection of vintage Neil Gaiman comics (with money from each free download donated to the charity Malaria No More UK), Troop 142 by Mike Dawson, The Black Feather Falls by Ellen Lindner, a range of Fat Freddy’s Cat and Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers books, classic comic Charley’s War, and many other titles.

And we’ve got some very exciting books coming out next week, so make sure you check your Storefront!
