GODSDEATH!
In Andlang, land of spirits, the Utgard-Odin challenged Thor to battle for the rune of his brother, the war god Tyr. For Tyr was changed by strange forces, within and without...and to restore him would come only at equal cost. This is the story of the IMMORTAL THOR...and the Odinson's end.

A bit slow after last issue but that tends to happen after such a big reveal as well as having been the norm in Wells' arcs. I don't mind a slow pace but considering this arc isn't that long it worries me that this stems from a cool idea where he has a solid first issue and little to bring it all to a satisfying conclusion. Not that he hasn't before but his consistency is lacking in that departmen more

I wish this was perfect. Or an amazing conclusion to the first arc.

But unfortunately it isn't. There is a lot of amazing stuff here, chemistry between Harry and Peter, amazing art and action.

But MJ and Richard were disappointment. Richard feels like a non-character and MJ feels too perfect. There is no struggle, no doubts, not even worries or arguments. Just text-book perfe more

I agree, I really like that Peters family life especially with MJ is good, it just seemed that there should have been more worry from MJ not just for her husband but the kids. I definitley agree with you about not wanting to see an argument but definitley some contention about the secret, and possibly trusting Peter in the end but the series is still great in my eyes just something that seemed off like you brought up and at least its giving us something fans wanted, a happy Peter/ Spider man

The only thing I'm left wanting on in this book is a bit more engaging action. Seeing as it's Peter still getting his feet under him as well as Harry, I can understand. It's their first big fight. Against an opponent they were both completely unprepared for. I just want my jaw to drop at some point from how amazing that will be. I know we'll get there. Before then, we've got some of the best chara more

After the strong start, I wasn't ready for the tone to switch this much, or for anything really. It's a bit disappointing, but let's see where it goes next.

I'm surprised by how many threads are being pulled on for this arc. Some obvious, some not so much. The art is great and the writing is a step above what Wells usually puts out. I really hope they use this arc to redeem some of the less good elements of the run, like they seem to be doing with Ben and Kamala.

Stellar performance by Hickman and Messina. Where I was concerned with Messina's abilities last issue I really think this was a truer example of his talents. Sure he isn't Checchetto but he's still a brilliant artist all the same.

The art is bit of a downgrade, but I think Messina does a good job still.

While I do like almost everything in this comic, reading this monthly and having the pacing be slow, even if a lot of groundwork is done, makes this more difficult to enjoy. It's still really great, but not peak like the first issues felt. However, I imagine with the next issue this will truly ramp up.
