Did not read empyre and haven't read immortal hulk yet, this has me hyped to read the trades(for i-hulk not empyre). This is a personal story tied-in with cosmic events, but luckily Ewing navigates his narrative in a manner where I don't feel lost.

Immortal She-Hulk #1

IN THE WAKE OF EMPYRE, JEN WALTERS GOES IMMORTAL!
The Cotati invasion has changed everything for Jennifer Walters. Now she seems to have a new lease on life...but things are never that simple for the gamma-powered. Al Ewing gives She-Hulk the "IMMORTAL" treatment with a horrifying stand-alone tale!

If you think you need Jen's backstory or need to read Empyre, don't. This is an amazing one-off story that moves both Jen's plot and Ewing's Immortal Hulk forward in very interesting ways. A pretty much must-have.

Solid start where we see iron man in search of his own identity as everyone around him already has an image built up of who Stark is. Art is smooth; the contrast of colors is probably my favorite aspect of it.

Thor continues to build his baggage and the crown does not ease that weight. The art has hit its peak with this issue, so many great panels of vivid color showcasing the power of thor. The arc overall was great(wish the ending and saga with the black winter felt more full) and im excited to see the ramifications of Thor's actions

Thor #6

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.

This issue has a lot going for it. There is a heartfelt dialogue between Sif and Beta ray bill, the art is spectacular, the black winter as a character is all-consuming and calculated. The main conflicting thought i am having is the ending of the issue, not sure how i feel about the twist. I guess im leaning in the positive direction as im still interested in the why of it.

THE BLACK WINTER IS HERE.
A god. A king. A herald. Every title Thor has worn has come with its own powers, its own terrible responsibilities.
But none of them will be enough to stop the Black Winter. To save the Ten Realms - the entirety of the Multiverse - the Odinson must become...something else...

Lady sif works so well in the role of the guardian of the bifrost, she is both regal and empathetic. Love the teasing of loki this issue as a taste of the potential future. Galactus and thor continue to be characterized so well and their relationship is built on the foundation of carrying the largest burdens in the universe

The art this issue is grand, shimmering with vivid colors of battle while cates accompanies it will heavy words of two old friends making their hardest choice. Thor feels like a king making choices he knows only people who are worth their kingship make, but it i love how the actions of him calls to what is the cost?

Galactus and Thor feel truly powerful in this issue and although it is hard to convince a reader to care about a planet we know little about, the way Thor is voiced creates a tidal wave of empathy as he defends those who can not themselves.

Love what cates is doing. His style is changing the foundation and expectations for each character he does, Thor get this treatment with fantastic scale.
