On the one hand, this was as good as usual. On the other, that Jewelry store window with the word "Jewery" and the big Star of David was super unnecessary and what the hell was up with that?

The artist claims it was a misspelling and he didn't understand how offensive the Star of David's use would be. But he's definitely an alt-right type, if his social media is any indication.

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.
