This is the belated second of our two January ALT News posters. It features similar information as last time, including introductions to Motion City Soundtrack and My Chemical Romance, but with some small tweaks. Is it a little too heavy on the wordcount for beginning English learners? Probably, but I don't care, I love talking about stuff I love talking about, and the diction is simple enough that I'm sure they can handle it if they take their time...they've got all month!

I had to scale back our anchor image because since the previous anchor took so long, there was no way to attempt something as intensive again and still hope to make a decent nigh-post-January debut.

So we have a New Years dragon again, but this time co-mingling with a character in a fancy New Years tuxedo number, like the roaring 20s in New York or something. Emphasis on the "or something."

But this was the fun part. After last poster's experimentation phase, I was able to click into how to make a fun Duel Masters display using my ragtag team of markers.

And no sooner do I drop the bombshell on these little dudes that Duel Masters is actually a US game made for Japan, than does Wizards of the Coast drop the megaton blast on us all that Duel Masters is officially coming back (kinda...sorta).

Anyway, back to the poster, to compensate for the colorless anchor image, I markered up a special Bronze-Arm Tribe for this one, but I also made sure to include some more insider-y creatures like Hearty Cap'n Polligon and the even more sneaky Iron-Arm Tribe WITH Mode Change. Yeah. Try getting that one, kids.
