• The ferocious finale of the conquest of Hel as Angela and Sera clash at last with the tyrannical Queen Hela in all her glory!
•  Holy crow, are we glad comics don't have special effects budgets. (Marguerite owes Kim, Stephanie and Israel so many drinks.)
•  And the splash page you've all been waiting for...

    Overall the comic is damn well near perfect. For a comic that is set in Hel, who would have thought that the ending of the arc would be so sweet. Angela and Sera actually get a happy ending and it will be interesting to see where they manage to take the comic next. The plot threads for the next arc have been laid out and it looks like they're taking Leah and a Hel hound along for the ride, and it's bound to be great! Read Full Review

    “Angela: Queen of Hel” #5 is a very strong issue to end an arc on and I can only hope the trade sales are good enough to keep this book going a bit longer. It's an important part of the Marvel lineup due to the relationship between Angela and Sera. It's action packed, fun, romantic but a bit more grown up and something Marvel definitely needs more of.

    This issue was overall decent. Better for a long term Thor fan or a fan of Gillen and Bennett. Read Full Review

    I gotta be honest, I was a little lost in the beginning of this issue. It all comes together in the end, with a very strong finish, but I think Bennett had two many different forces in play. There were angel slaves, and wraiths, and something else, and the snappy dialogue was, I think, purposefully misleading. Read Full Review

    I've been following this series in the hopes that the battle between Hela and Angela, foreshadowed on the first pages of issue #1, would be worth the five issue build-up. Unfortunately, it wasn't. While it succeeded in getting me to follow the series, the disappointing execution also means I have no interest in continuing with it. The writer waltzes over some of the more recognizable figures of the Thor-verse to make us admire how amazing Angela supposedly is. Rather than showing us Angela's struggle, these ridiculously easy victories just cheapen the whole narrative. And that's before all the fourth wall breaking jokes and references that further diminish the events. That's too close to fan fiction for me to enjoy.
