This issue of Looking for Group kicks off with Cale declaring, “That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen,” which should say enough. Need to know more? How about a trip down a road of a certain yellow shade? Or daring escapes, the unspooling of one of our hero’s backstory and have you ever tried to cross a border with a Warlock, a Panther, and a Dwarf? Customs gone mad in the world of LFG!
