It's a fine ending to the arc. That last reveal page doesn't really have me feeling excited though. It's just more eh running through the motions again. What was up with the Black Winter? Thor just ran through him without any real qualms or problems, just stole Galactus' power and dispatched of the Black Winter pretty easily. For an arc that was supposed to be an epic start, it all feels by t more

THE DEATH OF KING THOR!
The Black Winter has the power to reveal the means of any person's demise - and if the vision is true, Asgard is going to need a new Odinson to take the throne! But Thor is no mere herald or king - and even the death of all existence should fear his coming wrath.

Unsure of how I feel about this run so far. It looks great at least but I feel like I'm missing something with the story. I'll stick around for sure but not the knock out blow I was expecting when it was announced.

The best issue of the series so far. Aaron nails the arrogance necessary in Marvel's Dracula, introduces cool new villains and builds the team dynamic all in one issue. This arc has been excellent so far and if it keeps it up it could be an all timer Avenger story.

CIVIL WAR: VAMPIRE EDITION!
Dracula forges unholy alliances from his prison cell. Ghost Rider goes berserk. The Shadow Colonel and his new Legion of the Unliving raise bloody hell all over the globe. It's a good thing the Avengers just added a startling new member to the team.
