Heimdall's job interview!

It's basic stuff. Short, entertaining.

It's also unintentionally amusing, as neither of the other two candidates are particularly qualified while Heimdall is the obvious choice. Presumably, Odin included them to be a dick! Typical Odin!

6/10

  And thus, due to his boasting, Heimdall condemns himself to eternity without a bathroom break.

  The story about Heimdall was interesting. I always liked Heimdall and it's good to get some back story about him.
Also, Bifrosted Flakes.

  Heimdal is the best. So let's confine him forever.

Really glad they've taken a break from Thor stories. That's what the first 16 pages of the comic are for.

  The emphasis on "Forever" in Odin's last line seriously comes off like an villain's pre-fail speech about destroying the hero or the world or what have you. After all the anti-love trash he's been throwing Thor's way this confirms for me that Wednesday was in fact named for the devil.

  Is there a continuity issue with this? Odin talks about Thor's hammer was the only thing keeping Asgard from being overrun, but a couple of issues ago Heimdall was already standing guard before Thor could lift the hammer. So which came first, the chicken or the egg?

  I guess one can safely say he found himself a steady job! Hopefully it'll come with another uniform, because this one make your eyes sore!

@hendrica: Before Thor could lift the hammer, it belong to Odin, so it is quite plausible that he used it to protect Asgard too!

  Horton hears a Who and Heimdall hears a weed. Probably shouldn't bring up that his great hearing and eyesight but still Loki slipped by as a snake in an earlier issue.

  Heimdall rules like a... well... okay, like a *god*, I guess.

I have no idea where I was going with that. ;) Four stars.
