Aprils fools! I’m back with another article.
“Worst thing ever.”
Sorry, nay sayers, my therapist said it’s important that I have an outlet to express my thoughts. Unfortantly, you have to read this…
“I’d rather read the Mark Millar interview.”
Yeah, you should defiantly do that, but then read my pull list.
Ok, glad you’re back; here are my picks for April 1st.

The cast of Galaxy Quest have landed on the planet Dryth, charged by an alien rebel with fixing a mistake they didn’t even know they made by meddling in the politics of another planet… but first they have to get through an alien wasteland in one piece. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Guy is stuck at a comic convention with a group of aliens masquerading as his costars. Nothing could go wrong there, right?
Burnham crafts yet another smart and humorous script, that’s sure to make even the most grumpy fanboy smirk. Art by Arranz , is playful and tight. By Grabthar’s hammer I’ve enjoyed this miniseries.

Yyrkoon fled Melniboné with Elric’s beloved Cymoril. Left behind, heartbroken and humiliated, the albino emperor pursues them with the help of Straasha, King of the Sea Elementals. Finding that Yyrkoon is hiding in the ruins of Dhoz Kham, in the heart of the Young Kingdoms, Elric prepares to challenge his treacherous cousin and rescue Cymoril. But little does he know that this quest will forever change his destiny, as he finds the legendary cursed sword Stormbringer…
Big, bloody, adventurous; this adaption of Moorcocks masterpiece Elric does not disappoint….Rename this book Epic and call it good! I can’t wait for the third volume. Titan has also released a collection of the Elric adaption from the late 70’s early 80’s. Both adaptions are treasures of black magic, devilish plots, and sword play!
Short order this week, but these stories were so fulfilling!
