I was sent this comic album by the authors, Eileen and Trevor Green, and wanted to let you know about it. It's a fabulously fun detective romp, taking in the Scottish Highlands, the dreaming spires of Oxford, and the French Riviera.
If you like your comics full of mystery and adventure, with an emphasis on good story, and you love the worlds of Rider Haggard, Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, Edgar P. Jacobs and Hergé, then you'll want to read The Rainbow Orchid...
The Rainbow Orchid is available in English, Dutch, Spanish!
"... It is all so beautifully done: the historical references are spot on ... the dialogue is pitch perfect ... the result is one of the most satisfying comics around, whether you are a small boy, or a grown woman." - The Observer
"The between-the-wars 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." - The Financial Times
