All-New Doop #4
Unwritten: Apocalypse #7
Wonder Woman #33
Original Sin #5.2 (Thor & Loki: The Tenth Realm #2)
-LET’S GET NORSE
On one hand you have a comic that upends 50+ years of storytelling by using overused tropes (fighting an ally who thinks you’re the enemy; a trickster who can’t be trusted (or CAN he?); “I have a sister!?”) in a story that should bear delicious fruit, but has to get through all the tired setup and confusion first. On the other hand you have a comic telling an all new story without having to pay reverence to half a century of tales told, but it has the benefit of having at its helm one of the most celebrated authors (or artists!) to tell tales in that space. In this particular week I enjoyed the freshness of Ragnarok over the stale gruntwork of The Tenth Realm, but I’m very much looking forward to seeing where both stories end up going. A fine time to be enjoying Odin’s children! On Toothgnasher! On Toothgrinder! Let us raze the world of Heven AND make fall the stone god, for on this day we can have both!
