The graphic novel Elric: the Balance Lost wasn't really to my taste. Recent attempts to re-read Moorcock have been uniformly unsuccessful. Maybe I've simply outgrown the Albino Prince.
I don't think it was you.

I was so excited when I heard that BOOM! had picked up the Elric license, even though it meant that Dark Horse's collection of P. Craig Russell's Stormbringer was scuttled.

I really wanted to like Elric: The Balance Lost, but it wasn't what I wanted. I wanted an Elric sword-and-sorcery story. Instead, what I got was Crisis on Infinite Eternal Champions.

There's room in the market for a sword-and-sorcery Elric comic. This wasn't it.
