Staff Pick - Elric: The Balance Lost #1

The innumerable parallel worlds that constitute the Multiverse... the constant cosmic struggle for balance between the forces of Law and Chaos... unforgettable characters like Dorian Hawkmoon, Prince Corum of the Silver Hand and -- of course -- Elric of Melniboné and his soul-drinking sword Stormbringer! Epic fantasist Michael Moorcock has shaped modern fantasy more than any other living writer, contributing many of the ideas that have since become some of the most frequently seen concepts in fantasy & science fiction.

This Wednesday, Moorcock's creations return to comics in a new ongoing series courtesy of Chris Roberson and the folks at Boom! Something has gone disastrously wrong with the workings of Fate, upsetting the Cosmic Balance and threatening the Multiverse itself. A reluctant Elric, exiled Emperor of Melniboné, has been set on a quest to safeguard reality... but so too have some of his alternate incarnations native to other realms in the Multiverse. Will they stand together or be played against one another by forces beyond their control? Once again the Eternal Champion is caught in the center of a reality-warping apocalypse!

Elric: The Balance Lost #1 goes on sale tomorrow @ Curious Comics!
