It seems like it has been forever since the last Orchid issue came out. Number 8 was last release on July 4th. So it has been a good two months since we have seen Orchid and the Shadow Rebels. It is just enough time for Tomo Wolfe to get his armies ready.
In Orchid #9 we see some more back story of the mask. The mask that will either make somebody a un-stoppable machine or bring them to their death. And then the fight begins. Between the mighty Wolfe army and the bridge people.
It may look like the Wolfe army has all the advantage but we need to remember that Orchid has the mask and the will of the people. This was a build up issue. We got to see some back story of the mask but the next couple issues with the fight should be good. I am looking forward too it.
