Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal

Epic stuff, this. The whole issue is a retelling of past events. Thor is being shown events new to him, events which will change his perception of self.

Roy Thomas is clearly enjoying weaving these old tale into the Marvel universe. What does any of this have to do with the ongoing Celestials story arc, however?

6/10

  I know that Roy Thomas can't pull this off, but the promise of the last page to do something really crazy has me intrigued.

  I was hoping for something better than that last panel. This seems like patronizing readers with "Christianity is the one true religion".

  So Jesus is officially real in 616?

  Extra star for the cameo appearance of Adam (Christ) Warlock on the last page.

  Extra star for the caption saying "This is a family comic book" directly under a picture of a wolf being bloodily decapitated by a sword...

  Really hard book to judge. First half is essentially reprint/recap but it's probably best ever with good pacing and wording (except eye for an I) then the twist is good but the final teaser doesn't really fill you with confidence with the story
