Travel The Galaxy, Met Fascinating New Life Forms, and then kill them.

The inspiring mission statement of Tagon's Toughs - a group of 31st century Space Mercenaries, the subjects of dangerous and humorous adventures - whos job description is to break things and hurt people, chronicled in the comic Schlock Mercenary . I highly recommend this comic and have done so before. The true reason for this post is to announce the publication of "Schlock Mercenary: Under New Management", the first printed book of Schlock material. I was able to briefly attend the launch party for this book at the local comic book store Dragon's Keep, in Provo, Utah. I met and spoke with Howard Tayler, the author of this hillarious comic, and picked up my book, which was signed by said author. This is an excellent, high quality book. It's a little shorter than I would have liked, but really, all the Schlock comics written so far (6 years, daily) in one book would still be too short, in my opinion. It has nice heavy paper, and is in full color, every single comic, has notes by the author to accompany many of the comics (quite hillarious in their own right), and a new bonus story that I haven't gotten too yet. I can't wait for the next one. Check the comic out. Buy the book. I dare you. And remember Rule 34: If you're leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun.
