I am a particular fan of 'The Man Who Would Be King' based on Kipling's short story, and just think it one of the best adventure films made. And I still retain my interest in filmed versions of 'She'. At the moment I'm rather intrigued by the throne used in the 1935 RKO version starring Helen Gahagan, I was convinced it must have been designed by the wonderful Kay Nielsen by the look of it, but the IMDB reveals it was Alex Hall. Even the massive statues in the main hall of the set have a look of Nielsen, being very reminiscent of his concept sketches for Disney's Fantasia. The whole set is really something to behold (they re-used the huge gates from 'King Kong'), and echoes another great lost world film of the 1930's, 'Lost Horizon'.
Part one of The Rainbow Orchid comes in a 40 (black and white) page A4 format with colour cover. It debuted at the London Comics Festival on November 1st 2003 where it sold many copies and was generously praised, with just as many selling at the Bristol Comic Festival in 2004 (now sold out).
