The Shovelcidal Maniac: Episode 1 – Welcome Home.

Battles – they’re something we go through every single day of our pitiful existence. Some battle harder, The Maniaclonger, more complex fights, other trivial little… things. Some battle with enemies in the form of a person; others duel with the smallest of foes: cancer, for example. Some take on armies of soldiers… others battle a beast unseen. I… I battle myself.
