Ten Speed Graphic, October 2024

The battle-weary orc aims to start fresh, opening the first-ever coffee shop in the city of Thune. But old and new rivals stand in the way of success―not to mention the fact that no one has the faintest idea what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the blade behind her and make her plans a reality, she won’t be able to go it alone. After all, true rewards of the uncharted path are the travelers you meet along the way. And whether drawn together by ancient magic, flaky pastry, or a freshly brewed cup, they may become partners, family, and something deeper than she ever could have dreamed.

This full color graphic novel adaptation brings the high fantasy and low stakes of this beloved story to vibrant life as its never been seen before.

Planet Eep: home to the Eeps, a colony of stupid little battle robots who evolved to survive in their extraterrestrial jungle. TheEeps rebuilt Tarzon after finding his body, equipping him with self-regenerating biomechanics that grew as he grew. Just asTarzon reached his early cyborg adulthood, humans invaded Planet Eep. Carrying blob technology, the humans’ high-poweredblobcrafts fired blob-lasers all over the planet. To them, Planet Eeb is the perfect setting for a blob-themed amusement park.Tarzon and the Eeps look like primate-level tech compared to the humans’ blobcrafts, but they’ll tear anyone limb from limb todefend their jungle.

Everything changes when Captain Jane Proter arrives. Her family’s own centuries-old pre-colonial past gives her a possible linkto understanding a supposed ‘savage’ like Tarzon. Are the values she now defends as corrupted as she suspects? Tarzon’s simplesense of right, wrong and love for the jungle may be the only hope to save the Eeps and their civilization.
