Burn the Orphanage was a hit for Image Comics. You wouldn't think that a book with such a title would be, but the Daniel Freedman/Sina Grace collaboration proved to be something Image Comics wanted to revisit. Rock finally returns home, only to find his city under siege. And you won’t believe who is the cause of all the chaos. The story moves readers into the the next phase of Burn the Orphanage. While Rock and his team of street fighters have gone on a lot of adventures together, they've never faced such overwhelming odds.
“We tested our fans with the oversized and sprawling chapters in Born to Lose, so Reign of Terror should feel like an unlocked level of absolute fun,” said Grace. “The gang is back together and we are glad to have them on their home turf, working with and against some familiar faces.”
Rock will be taking back his city in Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror #1, which arrives in stores on May 7 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR140488. Cover B by Andy Belanger can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code MAR140489.
“Friendships and allegiances will be tested as our heroes are put through a gauntlet of new and old foes, betrayal, and oversized robot mayhem,” said Freedman. "Reign of Terror is exciting because it's the first in a series of longer form story arcs we have ready to tell. BURN THE ORPHANAGE is only just getting started."
