Growing up, Orion martin has always had a passion for comics. When he moved to China, he was attracted by the unique visual and narrative style of Chinese comics he saw.
By reading Chinese comics and cartoons, Orion realized they were incredibly useful in helping him learn mandarin as well Chinese culture.
Excited by the thriving communities of commercial and independent cartoonists working China, Orion wanted to do more than simply read their works
He came up with the idea of publishing independent comics from China and presenting them to English-language readers across the globe. This became the start of Paradise Systems.
