ELRIC: THE BALANCE LOST #1
Written by Chris Roberson
Drawn by Francesco Biagini
SC, 32pgs, FC, SRP: $3.99
COVER A: Francesco Mattina
COVER B: Francesco Biagini
Diamond Code: MAY110918
For 40 years comic fandom has thrilled to the exploits of Elric since his introduction in Marvel Comics’ Conan the Barbarian in the early 1970s. Neil Gaiman called Elric’s creator Michael Moorcock “my model for what a writer was” while Warren Ellis said he is one of the “eight core sites in my creative genome.” Now the godfather of the Multiverse teams up with hot New York Times bestseller Chris Roberson (SUPERMAN, iZOMBIE, STAN LEE’S STARBORN) for an ongoing series that sees a crisis break out across multiple worlds with Moorcock’s other two most famous fantasy franchise characters, Corum of the Scarlet Robe and Dorian Hawkmoon! The workings of Fate are being tampered across the Multiverse, upsetting the Cosmic Balance. Elric is on a quest to restore The Balance and save the Multiverse from ruin! Elric, Corum, and Hawkmoon are forced into action far and wide, but will they fight on the side of Law…or Chaos?

    Oh, how I wish this was a live cast. So we could all call in and talk with Matthew about why Flashpoint is letting us all down.

      Aquaman and Wonderwoman are fighting mostly in Europe (and completly flooded the western part of it) as far as i know

        Its like the US vs the USSR. They were in a cold war but never fought each other directly on a massive scale and would instead use proxies to fight (Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc.). So, it does make sense that they would not fight each other directly in a complete manner.

    Matthew — I’m glad someone else agrees with me that the Hal Jordan issue was rancid. What did you think of Green Arrow Industries?

    Where I’m from people usually shoot scissors, because we show our picks the same time you say ‘scissors’, therefore the thing people say is usually the one they pick, so most of the time it’s scissors.

    So Rock.

      “THE ROCK SAYS IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU’D GO WITH!”

    FWIW the actress who played Scarlett (Rachel Nichols) was also the Orion Cadet in the last Start Trek movie and is the love interest (I think) in the new Conan movie.
