Weeks ago, All-Father Odin sent his brother Cul - the Serpent, the God of Fear, Thor's backstabbing uncle - into the depths of Malekith's home realm, Svartalfheim. There lies the Black Bifrost, Malekith's own corrupted Rainbow Bridge. Cul's mission is to gather intelligence on the Bifrost, and if he can, destroy it. But will Cul redeem himself at last? Or has the All-Father made another critical mistake in this War of the Realms?

    This issue is a pleasant surprise in almost every way, as Aaron and company take a small"but earned"detour from the main events of "War of the Realms." Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers May 29, 2019

    This being a supplemental story to The War of the Realms, it is not absolutely necessary to read it to understand what is happening in the main book. No one could blame you for skipping out on it. You would, however, be doing yourself a big disservice if you did decide to pass on this tremendous, heartfelt singular chapter. Cul Borson may not be one of your favorite Asgardians at the beginning of this issue, but by the end, you might have your mind changed, if not your heart. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jun 4, 2019

    We learn a lot of new things about the Asgardian first family in this tragic tale of negligence and overconfidence. Odin's heretofore unknown brother is a welcome addition to the whole Norse mythological canon, even if he wasn't mentioned in all the mythological tales. He is to Odin what Loki is to Thor, a pain in his godly side. The reasons why he was never mentioned are intriguing as we dwell upon his own fears and setbacks. This all builds up to an exciting climax as we face"to be continued! Read Full Review
