Tom Morello on Orchid – She’s “Part Suicide Girl, Part Joan of Arc”

Posted In Blog,Comics,Entertainment,Interviews,Music

by Damon Martin

Most people know Tom Morello as the guitarist from Rage Against the Machine or Audioslave, but now the Harvard graduate is moving into writing, specifically a new comic book called Orchid.

The book, which is written by Morello and features art from Shepard Fairey and Scott Hepburn, will be released by Dark Horse later this year

Influenced by the ladies featured on SuicideGirls.com, Morello’s title character is a strong female lead in a future world where the rich and powerful rule with an iron fist and the powerless are left with the scraps.

Morello, usually known for guitar innovations, has also added a new riff to his comic book set. With each issue, he will release a new track that fans will be able to download that will serve as the soundtrack to the story.

The book was unveiled last weekend at San Diego Comic Con where Morello sat down with SuicideGirls.com to give an insight into his passion for comics and what to expect when Orchid debuts.

[Otok in d20]

This week, Otok Suicide takes a powerful stance on the Feminist Group.

  • WHY DO YOU LOVE IT?: It’s chock full of news and resources that I never would have known about otherwise. Best recent discovery? The incident which led to the creation of the SlutWalk. How fucking cool is that? Also, Morgan (the group owner and moderator) is fair when dealing with problem posters. She gives everyone a chance, but doesn’t hesitate to boot them if they’re trolls. That keeps the headdesk-inducing threads to a minimum.

  • DISCUSSION TIP: You have the right to your opinion, and everyone else has the right to respond to it, even if it’s to disagree.


  • BEST RANDOM QUOTE: “I hope he steps on a lego.

“

  • MOST HEATED DISCUSSION THREAD: A lot of the threads get passionate, but I think the most consistently active one is the Rantspace rant thread. Not only is it eye-opening, but it’s like a support group within the group. I find it very cathartic to both read and post in that thread.
  • WHO’S WELCOME TO JOIN?: Anyone interested in learning about promoting equality of any sort, not just gender-equality.

NEW SG Interview: Ron Marz – Shinku

Posted In Blog,Comics,Entertainment,Interviews

by Alex Dueben


“The nature of all drama is really conflict.”
- Ron Marz

Ron Marz has been a comic book writer for many years, with a long list of credits at Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Top Cow and just about every other comics company there is. His career has notably included a long run on Green Lantern.

In recent years some of his best work has been for Top Cow, where he’s been writing the company’s flagship comic Witchblade. He transformed the tile from a comic that was known in its early years for T&A into a complex superhero fantasy story that has led to Marz writing a series of miniseries (First Born and Artifacts) and ongoing series (Magdalena) for the company.

Marz is leaving the series with issue #150, and is busy writing a Green Lantern one shot and the Voodoo series coming from DC this fall. His big project this summer though is Shinku, a bloody horror story set in Japan that involves samurai and vampires, and is just as cool as it sounds.
