Alchemy tore the Elric brothers’ bodies apart. Can their bond make them whole again? 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 their circumstances are tragic, in these spoofs penned by series' author Hiromu Arakawa, the brothers’ quest to reclaim their bodies is completely hilarious! Collects all of author Hiromu Arakawa’s beloved four-panel comic strips from the the graphic novel series, her bonus strips from the anime DVDs of Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and rare strips from Japan! No joke is too cheesy and there are no sacred cows when Arakawa takes up her pen to spoof her own characters in this delightfully zany take on Fullmetal Alchemist!
