In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Though the Elric brothers’ circumstances are tragic, in these spoofs penned by author Hiromu Arakawa, the duo’s quest to reclaim their bodies is completely hilarious!
“The FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: THE COMPLETE FOUR-PANEL COMICS adds a fun and lighthearted twist to Hiromu Arakawa’s beloved action-adventure series,” says Hope Donovan, VIZ Media’s Managing Editor. “FULLMETAL fans and readers familiar with Arakawa’s humor won’t want to miss this comprehensive collection.”
