While not BL, I do recommend Mary Gentle's Grunts.

No, just ones with Orks in, its not something some of the writers would like to write about, the inner struggle and character development would be... tricky.

Deff Skwadron by Gordon Rennie was an Ork graphic novel*


*Orks can't read too well, so they need lots of pictures.

Sadly, not that I know of. Perhaps there may be an Ork short story in the "Fear the Alien" anthology that the Black Library will release soon/next year.

Orcs by Stan Nicholls was good.

not as the main character i dont think, it would be hard reading to have endless pages of:

"smash dem umies"
"i iz da bestest!"
and not forgetting
"WAAAAAAAGH!!!!"

might be interesting to give it a go

Orcs by Stan Nicholls was good.

Hell yes, seconded.

Only finished it recently, though I've had it for years. Fantastic series.
Must be noted that those orcs are Warcrafty-type orcs rather than Tolkieny or WH40K-type orcs.

Depends what you prefer, though I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Also, new Orc series by Stan Nicholls started recently, I think it's called Bad Blood.

Really? :O I shall have to check this out! Honestly, I much prefer Warcraft style Orcs to 40K Orks, which I really dislike. Tolkien Orcs are cool, only because of their origins.

I agree brilliant book. theres a series in firebase about a newly hatched/born/whatever ork, that was a good read. first few issues it was in I think.
