I’m in the middle of moving preparations, which means I don’t have much time to write a long introduction. Let’s get to this week’s comics. Today, I picked up War of the Realms 2 and Thor 12. Here are my impressions.
War of the Realms 2 is good. This issue is very action heavy, with a lot of characters involved. It’s nice to see Jane Foster get involved, as well as updating us on her fight with cancer. Beyond that, this issue is just chaotic. It makes for an entertaining issue, but there’s very little room left for character moments besides maybe Jane Foster. Still, if you enjoyed the first issue, you’ll likely enjoy this one, and there is at least a fair amount of story development within the action.
Thor 12 is great. This issue focuses almost entirely on Loki, immediately after being eaten by his Ice Giant father at the end of War of the Realms 1. It’s kind-of a character study for Thor’s mischievous brother who doesn’t know what he’s supposed to be anymore. If the next couple issues of Thor continue on this story, it could end up being really good. This is definitely worth picking up for Loki fans.
