I feel cheated on two fronts.

First, the reveal of the whisper that brought down Thor feels like a reenactment of the Heckler messing up Happy Gilmore's mojo at a golf tournament.

Thor has had self-doubts in the past; heck, even Jane commented him having doubts is what made him strive to be a better god and be worthy of Mjolnir in a previous issue of Unworthy Thor...

Bridging the New 52 Supes with the pre-flashpoint Supes using the red/blue Superman stories of past is not just clever but also inspired. Well done Jurgens, Tomasi and co. It's a nod to history and at the same time validates the existence of the New 52 Supes for those who followed his stories or were saddened by his death. The art is no less than amazing and any artist who can make silly old Mxy more

The momentum from the fist issue continues, with this issue being surprisingly dark for a comic about two pre-teens. I have always been a fan of the way Tomasi writes younger characters and this comic further cements that idea.

This issue was interesting. Definitely low on the action, but it actually really didn't need it at all. I like that Kamala didn't do a very silly thing and stayed heroic throughout the book. Honestly I'd say the issue really shines when it focuses on her supporting cast. All in all it's another solid entry in a quality series.

This issue was fantastic. The reveal of who Creepy!Kent was totally caught me off guard but made a lot of sense in retrospect. I honestly felt for 'em by the end of this issue, something I wouldn't have thought possible with the revealed character. So far this crossover has me extremely hyped through two issues. Can't recommend enough!
