ORPHANS vol. 1: Still Free

I wrote a graphic novel one time.

Branko Jovanovic drew the pictures.

Jesse Heagsta, Sean Burres, and Fred Stresing colored inside the lines.

ORPHANS tells the story of Alexis Quinn, a failed superhuman soldier who’s reinvented himself as a sort of 21st Century Robin Hood, stealing and redistributing dangerous new technology. Because Quinn wants to see the future put to better use than making weapons.

Dwight Eisenhower said: “We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex.”

Basically, ORPHANS is superheroes versus that military-industrial complex.

Here are the Dalai Lama’s thoughts on the subject.

The book has been wellreceived and wellreviewed.

Anyway, I want you to read ORPHANS. So I’m giving the whole damn thing away for free, all 110 pages. Click on the links below to download DRM-Free PDF copies of each chapter.


If you enjoy what you read, spread the word, and maybe buy the issues from comiXology, or buy a physical copy from my online store. The printed copy features remastered lettering and an introduction written by Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, GI Joe Retaliation).

Happy holidays.
