Est Sularus oth Mithas

If you saw my review for the first volume, you’ll know that Weiss and Hickman ushered me into the realm of fantasy and nerddom at large.  If you didn’t, now you do through an admittedly awkward-sounding intro.  Either way, you’re here to hear what I think about the compilation of the series adapted from the books.  In short, I love it.  Some mildly spoilery things lie ahead, but these books have been out for quite some time.

Hold on tight, it’s boom time.

Through the first two issue of this series, we’ve been treated to a wonderful cyberpunk/ancient world mashup, and young Mulan has found herself at the mercy of forces beyond her control or understanding.  But, now it’s time to rock and roll.  Becoming what she’s always meant to become, it’s time for Mulan to swing big at everyone that’s trying to contain her.

I want you to hit me as hard as you can.

This is what we’ve been waiting for. The issue where we see the brutality return, where we get back to the titular organization that started the whole business off.  Sebastian needs to hit something, and this whole issue is the release that we didn’t realize we’d been waiting for.

Jesus loves me, this I know . . .

The next chapter in Michael’s journey is another long step away from what is known, and further into either the delusion or the righteous path . . . whichever way it leans.  Following his heart, running from his mind, and tempering his actions with the overabundance of Biblical teachings, Michael finds himself helping those who he feels need it while being helpless in many ways himself.

Nothing up my sleeve, nothing on my mind . . .

This is a book that is a challenge to read, in the best kind of way.  Tracking down the final act of a magician killed in his last show, several groups converge on a mystery that binds the world - and what comes after - together.

I scream, you scream . . .

I would give you a quick recap of events, but this issue’s gonna do it for you.  So, let’s just say that things are once again going nuck-butty in Neighborville, and it’s up to our intrepid and woebegotten heroes to win the day.

To Masters Jacen and Anakin and Mistress Jaina,

Hey, kids. I don't really know where to start here, but I knew I had to write something. Since Alderaan's destruction, the folks who were off-world have instituted a new tradition, their "Return." I don't mean to appropriate the tradition, I've always been a simple man, but I felt if that's a tradition that can be had from the ending of a world, what then could I do at the ending of the universe?

A Love Letter to THAC0

Dear THAC0,

To Hit Armor Class 0. What an elegant system you were, giving definition to that which truly cannot be defined. You took the very absence of anything and made it achievable. You could touch 0, you could touch it critically, and even further yet . . . you could make us touch things that couldn't even be real. You made us able to hit things so agile and armored that no real number could calculate it.
