    Much like Thor's internal battle with Donald Blake within the issue, I feel like the writing is at battle with the art in this issue. Glass's strong take on the Thor/Blake relationship and his simply frightening vision of Loki are definitely Must Read material. Unfortunately, I found that the art seriously hindered my enjoyment of the issue. Tan Eng Huat definitely has strong aspects to his art, but the overall look and feel of the issue is incredibly offputting. Thankfully the writing wins out on this issue, but I can't help but feel that, with stronger art, this issue could have made a run for Book of the Week. Read Full Review

    There have been a number of retellings of Marvel heroes' early days and this is one of the more successful ones because it infuses these simple stories with some provocative psychological depth. I actually wonder if Glass might've been better off taking even more creative license with the original stories, because the dialog soars here while the plotting sometimes seems a little tangled.
