Media Release — Orang Utan Comics would like to invite you to accompany them on a journey through time in the pages of the third installment of their acclaimed anthology, Faster Than Light. Join them as they travel back in time to the hallowed halls of Valhalla, as they quest with an eighth century Frankish knight and as they return to the trenches of World War I for a twisted weird war tale!
Yes, this issue of FTL has a distinctly historical flavour, with three of our four strips taking you on a journey into the mists of time! They also arrive back in the present with a bump, as a lone teenager debates his fate with the omniscient narrator of his life’s story. Alongside these comic strips are also presented two prose stories, beautifully illustrated by exceptional, young photographer, Ashley Soltis. With their third issue they’re continuing to go beyond people’s expectations and set a new standard for comic book anthologies. So join them as they fire up the engine of their DeLorean DMC-12 and go back in time…
