JOE: In order to really bring Stan's concept of orcs with a culture to life, I wanted to experiment with other orc characters, never seen or mentioned in the graphic novel. Here are the results of some of those experiments.
Note: Jennesta's orc guards do make a brief appearance.
STAN: I like what Joe did here - I'm always happy to let creative people play with my toys. And it doesn't matter that most of these concepts didn't make it into the finished book. The important thing is the process of thinking your way through how best to approach and present the story. It's that iceberg again.
