A disappointing issue. Nothing really happens and it feels like a rip-off from Marvel selling us two first issues instead of one. The final "reveal" is not a surprise to anyone, the art is good overall but sometimes a bit cartoony. Of course, Aaron is used to build things for the long run, but with this one he's really testing our patience.

This series is a masterpiece of storytelling in t more

The day Jason Aaron stops writing Thor will be the saddest day ever. Jane has been my favorite Thor by a country mile and even though I think her death is being written by a master writer. Part of me wonders if her soul is somehow going to be Odinson's new weapon as he returns to lead this book. No matter what this has been masterfully written, drawn, and colored. The struggle and color drips off more

I would have liked to love this one more. The art was good all through and Jason Aaron's script
is competent, though nowhere near the level of what he's doing on Thor. Truth be told, this comic lacks a bit of focus and sometimes feels like a series of previews, without the coherence of what made DC Rebirth#1 a great reading.
