June Books 10) Schlock Mercenary: Massively Parallel, by Howard Tayler

For the third year in a row I've read the latest volume of Tayler's webcomic about a group of interplanetary mercenaries because it's been nominated for the Hugo for Best Graphic Story, and for the third year in a row I think I will put it last on my ballot (it came fifth out of five in 2009 and 2010 when the votes had been counted as well). The artwork doesn't appeal to me, I don't really care much about the characters, and the plot, such as it is, is about chasing various bad guys to defeat them in combat. The super-killer-robot from last year's volume makes a guest appearance as well.
