About The Book

"A fun, twisted, nostalgic-galactic road trip filled with a ton of cool characters and a ton of completely over-the-top MAYHEM!" —Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Co-Creator Kevin Eastman

Gor, Kravis, and Mongtar are three Orcs trying to survive while on the run from everything and everyone on their home world. When the naive bureaucrats from StarBleep land on their planet, the orcs unwittingly steal most advanced ship in the fleet and blast into the dankest reaches of the outer galactigon. After befriending the ship's AI, D.O.N.A, the gang encounters everything from pacifier-sucking bounty hunters to raucous nightclubs to steampunk Space Rats. The cosmos will never be the same, thanks to the Orcs in Space!

Volume 1 collects issues #1-4.

About The Authors

R.Y. Gheith is a writer who spends an unhealthy amount of time reading comics, playing fantasy online games, and planning his next step toward musical pop stardom.

Born in the sleepy suburban town of Modesto, California, Abed Gheith grew up surrounded by He-Man toys, Jim Henson properties, and Superman comics. At a young age, he was always using his imagination to play outside by his lonesome. While other kids were getting broken legs and playing sports, he was coming up with ideas and stories and pretending he was an action movie star. Fast-forward to adulthood, Abed moved to Los Angeles at 23 with his friends Justin Roiland and Sevan Najarian. Together, they created the cult Internet sensation House of Cosbys for This led to writing two episodes of Rick and Morty with his brother, Rashad. Nowadays, Abed works as a story consultant on shows for Disney and Cartoon Network, and in his spare time writes comic books. He is the inspiration for the character Abed Nadir on the NBC sitcom Community and occasionally co-hosts on a podcast called Gone Riffin' with Rich Fulcher.

Raves and Reviews

"This fun, lively romp will appeal to fans of TV shows like Invader Zim and (naturally) Rick and Morty."

– Booklist

Orcs In Space is goofy, magical, interstellar fun - finally, a comic that justifies bookstores always putting sci-fi and fantasy into a single section!”

– Jeffrey Brown, author of Darth Vader and Son and Incredible Change-Bots
