Only one talent could possibly summon the vision and fortitude necessary to recount such a mighty tale as this--the supremely gifted writer and artist Walter Simonson! 
Orion by Walter Simonson Book One collects issues #12-25 of the legendary storyteller's acclaimed Orion series, and also includes a treasure trove of Simonson's Fourth World-related short stories, covers and sketches.
