Books: The Rainbow Orchid by Garen Ewing - The main character in this set of graphic novels is an assistant to a historical researcher who ends up embroiled in an epic adventure to track down a rare flower. Beautifully illustrated with classic storytelling, in a similar style to Hergé's Tintin.
He also sent me a nice response on Twitter: "... I really love your Rainbow Orchid books. They fuel my hunger for classic adventure!"
How nice is that? I'm so chuffed to know he enjoys The Rainbow Orchid. Rhys starts his UK tour of This Way to the Spaceship on 1 July - see his tour dates here.
I had a superb time at Stripdagen in Haarlem this past weekend. Report and photos to follow soon.
|That's so great with Darby's high praise of Rainbow Orchid! Not getting HBO, though, I haven't seen (or heard) of Flight of the Conchords. After seeing the clips, I will have to see if I can find it on DVD. :-)|
|There's plenty of classic 'Conchords' on YouTube.|
|Thanks, Garen! I'll have to check that out!|
|Here are some of my favourites: Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros (live), If You're Into It, Robots ... oh, loads more ... once you start watching them you can keep going :-)|
|Those are funny! :-D Thank, you! (Makes for fun watching, especially with the next 4 wks. coming.)|
|As a New-Zealander, I'm delighted that Rhys Darby put in a review!|
|He's a star :-)|
