Rocktober? Shocktober? Mohawktober? Here at ComicsAlliance, we just can't decide what we want to celebrate this month, so we're bringing you a different monthly theme every day! Today, we'reraising the black sword of Chaos in honor of Arioch, Lord of the Seven Darks, Knight of the Swords, Lord of the Higher Hell, and patron diety of Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné! Find out how to properly observe this festive month after the cut!

Yep: It mostly comes down to killing things with swords. You may want to check with your local law enforcement agencies before really gearing up for the necessary blood and souls of Ariochtober, but in the meantime, Chris Roberson and Francesco Biagini's Elric: The Balance Lost makes a pretty nice way to celebrate Michael Moorcocktober in its stead!
