I’m putting a submission package together for ORPHANS, in hopes of getting the book into print for a wider audience and finding a home for the second volume.
Here are some nice things people have said about the first volume:
“The pacing…is executed perfectly, and the dialogue is also perfect, but Orphans really shines because of the massive talent of artist Jovanovic, who makes this grim world all too real.” – Geek Speak Magazine
“Eric — along with Branko, Jesse, Sean and Fred — has managed to create a vivid world that the reader can’t help but be completely immersed in. I hope that Orphans finds you like it did me…begging for more.” – Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), from her introduction.
“Excellently done. The writing conveyed the characters, story, and pacing very well while the plot was engaging enough to give you that “I don’t want it to end” feeling…A.” – IGN.com
“Palicki is servicing the characters foremost, and in doing so he offers a story that feels genuinely quite tense, and confined. We spend a lot of time quietly following Alexis at the start, ramping up the sense that this is a practical, smart, interesting protagonist. Once he’s threatened, the fact he doesn’t use his science-based super-strength? That’s really involving.” – Comics Vanguard
Volume 2 is coming. In the meantime, you can read the first volume digitally through comiXology for less than a fiver.
