Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 13: 01/10/12
Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa opens with Ed, Lin and Envy accidentally being eaten by Gluttony. They end up on the other side of an imperfect portal. Gluttony it turns out is larger on the inside than the outside but he can't be used for traveling through time or space.
Al and Gluttony, both at a loss with the disappearance of Lin, Ed and Envy, form an uneasy alliance. It will be the first of many between old enemies as the series progresses. Together they head back to Central to visit Father.
Fans of the original anime will have their expectations toyed with as Father's identity is revealed. It's not as straightforward as that series made it. There's a similar but tangental back story here.
Meanwhile, King Bradley pushes back over a cup of tea with mustang's second in command. It's going to be a cat and mouse game and it's clear that Bradley sees Mustang as the mouse.
