Forged for War
Nicholls, Stan (Book - 2011 )
Average Rating: 3 stars out of 5.

Item Details

Orcs: Forged for War is the first graphic novel in Stan Nicholls' beloved Orcs universe. The fantasy landscape in this world is brutal and unforgiving, and populated by a race of unlikely protagonists: the powerful and violent warriors, orcs. Orcs: Forged for War is an original story-a new entry in this series, not an adaptation of old material. It follows a ruthless and deadly cohort of warrior orcs as they fight their way free of the dominion of an evil human enchantress. Sitting on an exhilarating peak with high fantasy on one side and the thrilling, gruesome battlefields of graphic novel classics like Frank Miller's 300 on the other, Orcs presents the world of its ogre-like protagonists with technicolor violence and moments of unexpected sympathy.

Pretty good story about Orcs. Yes you can read this without reading any of Stan Nicholls' novels but you might feel a little like you're missing something. (like I did.) Pretty standard stuff with really good art.
