Ommmmminous Hummmmmmmm

Since this blog is just a rest stop on the way to A Clone's Paradise I thought I'd post something to distract you during your long journey. Schlock Mercenary is the funniest comic I've ever seen. Schlock Mercenary, the Online Comic Space Opera by Howard Tayler, takes place in the distant future, featuring Schlock, carbosilicate amorph, which is the author's fancy way of saying a shape-changing pile of goo, who gets a job with a band of mercenaries, and also carries a dangerous plazma cannon, which emits an 'Ommmmminous Hummmmmmmm' as it charges, preparing to burn everything in its path to cinders. You should check it out. Every Schlock comic is available on the website, I've been reading through from the beginning, although a couple of days ago I skipped to the most current storyline, so I could be prepared to meet Howard Tayler pick up an autographed copy of the new, first ever, Schlock Mercenary book, Schlock Mercenary: Under New Management - available for pre-order now (signed!). It just so happens that Howard Tayler lives less than 30 minutes from me, and he will be having a launch party for the book at the comic book store Dragon's Keep, in Provo, UT. I'm pretty excited about going. For more information on Schlock Mercenary Learn about the characters, or read from the very beginning, or start with a storyline the author reccommends. I highly reccommend the whole thing.
