This ending was sorta underwhelming?

Odin 🤝 Tony

Writers making something their fault. Difference here is Thor is always cleaning up after Odin, its a tired troupe.

I'm not a fan of the what happened.. Loki and Thor seem to feel sorry for Donald, so they stop Odin from killing him… but then they torture him for eternity. What?

It is in character for Loki and Donald killed a lot of people, him getting away scot-free would've been wrong.

I agree. Blake didn't deserve that ending.

Still a visual masterpiece. The take on Diana is great and I like her squirrel friend. Dr Psycho is interesting and so is Odin. This might be the most accurate representation of Thor I have seen in comics. The backup feature has beautiful art, it's just not that interesting, I wish they gave it to Donna Troy instead.

This is the first comic I have been truly excited for in ages. And I loved it.

The first Issue already showed a welcome shift into a mystical and fantastic direction for Diana. The second Issue of Cloonan’s and Conrad’s run brings much the same and ramps up the fun. Ratatosk is used more. The intrigue continues. An old enemy appears. This Odin, I absolutely love. The art has improve more

Not bad but not excellent either and if we compare it with the price it falls short. It clarifies many gaps and there is also a lot of fillers or characters that do not interest to see a particular audience, it is a way of forcing the reader to buy expensive for one or two characters that they like and have to pay for many stories or characters that do not he was interested.

Okay first of all, I am a Tom King fanboy, I do admit that. I like most of his work, except HiC. Being upset about his run at all is fine with me, especially if you felt betrayed by issue 50. I think a lot of people did. I did come off as a bit hostile. My bad. I'm in the wrong. I have seen large groups of people harassing Tom King and everything he does, I may have mistaken you for that. Also again nothing wrong with disagreeing with me on his Batman.
