Boom! Studios: Elric #11 premiereFor decades, bibliophiles have known that Michael Moorcock‘s Eternal Champions books are among the greatest fantasy books ever written. Amazingly, BOOM! Studios brought together the perfect team to introduce these characters to a whole new audience of comic readers.

Inspired by the original novels, Elric: The Balance Lost is an all-new tale scripted by Chris Roberson that is every bit as great as those classic stories. Couple that with the exceptional art of Francesco Biagini and you get one ridiculously awesome comic.

BOOM! Studios has given us an exclusive preview of pages from Elric: The Balance Lost #11. Check it out here below.

Cover Price: $3.99

With four of the incarnations of the Eternal Champion in one place, you would think they would be nearly unstoppable. But we learn very quickly in Elric: The Balance Lost #10 that as amazing as these men are, there are far greater powers in the multiverse. Far greater and far larger in fact.

We enter the issue gawking at the stature of the two Lost Gods, Kwll and Rhynn. Their game is responsible for the destruction of the balance and the aftershocks that are echoing through the worlds. While some have come under the sway of Law, many have embraced chaos in it’s raw form. Our heroes (and anti-heroes) are trying to restore the balance and seek an audience with these powerful beings. Things, as they are wont to do, go horribly awry.

As you may know if you have read any of my other Elric reviews, I am a huge fan of the Eternal Champion books and comics. This month I got to review Elric: The Balance Lost #9 and it was a real treat. A major change from the majority of the previous comics, this issue explores some of the wonders and background of the multiverse as envisioned by Michael Moorcock.

We get to explore the different planes and concepts of inter-dimensional travel as seen by our heroes on the sentient ship Spammer Gain. Focusing mainly on information, this month we are given a tutorial on the different ways to travel between the worlds and the types of people able to do so.

Law and Chaos run rampant in Elric: The Balance Lost #6. Still questing for Tanelorn, our heroes embark on the final leg of this journey.

I must say I am still quite amazed at how well Chris Roberson mimics the style of the original writings that Michael Moorcock began producing fifty years ago.
