Scott apparently forgot about this last part, of just assumed that ancient Egyptians look a lot like Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton.

Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where I check out the first issue of a new comic and tell you whether or not you should start following that comic based only on that.

Aug

I, like everyone else you know, have a wish list of characters that I’d love to see as DLC. I’ll be ignoring issues of copyright. These are my fantasy picks, and if copyright issues enter into your fantasy world then you’re probably a lawyer or a pervert.
