Excellent issue.

Dialogue is on point. Art is phenomenal and action scenes are thrilling. I LOVE THIS ROSTER. Wierd folks are complaining about Harley being Harley lol.

I forget sometimes that comic book readers, ironically tend to scoff at things like smiling, fun, or anything signifying joy in their comics. If you ask me that sentiment is a plague.

Not as big a fan as most on here but I did enjoy it. I think the set up lacked that big umph factor I was expecting, so that's on me for having preconceived notions, but the story is good and sets up for something exciting. I guess I just expected the debut of Ewing's Thor to be and instant classic or something. Overall worth your time and it should find it's way onto your pull lists.
