Welcome to the biggest new adventure in comics—a spectacular epic featuring innumerous surprises, brilliant characters, and all the nostalgia of an old-school adventure tale. In Volume One, follow the story's hero—Julius Chancer, the adventurous assistant to historical researcher Sir Alfred Catesby-Grey—as he embarks on a hazardous quest for the rainbow orchid, a mythical flower steeped in legend that was last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus. Julius' epic journey takes him from 1920s Britain to the Indian subcontinent and its mysterious lost valleys.
