Powers Cosmic: Episode 04

I certainly have some blogging to catch up on! Earlier this month Elroy released Powers Cosmic Episode 4 (appropriately, I’m wearing the very limited-edition blue Powers Cosmic tshirt). I’m pretty sure the whole thing is based on actual events. Since the zombie uprising is on everyone’s lips these days, do yourself a favour and check…
