Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Everything in pop culture moves in cycles, and every so often, or flights of fancy return to the time travel movie from 1985, Back to the Future.  But there is more than one Back to the Future movie. Which movie is the best?  You hold the answer to this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week!


Champions of the Wild Weird West
Writer: Michael David Nelsen and Erik Hendrix
Artist: George Kambadais
The honor of a samurai, the mysticism of the Native American Culture, and a whole heck of a lot of Old West Action. When a fallen samurai is drawn to the United States to save his wife-to-be and her father, he is drawn into a plot much more complex than a simple rescue. Meeting up with an adventurer, his Indian financial advisor, a mercenary, and a former priest, they set off on a quest to save the West from the strange and unimaginable. Zombie Indians, mystical beings, and mad science are just a few of they must face on their quest to save themselves, those they love, and the whole of the Old West.
