AMAZING! Art and story were just fantastic. The fight with Jormugund where every panel was an entire page for the entire comic was awesome. First Blood-Last man with the Executioners last stand at Gjallbru is my favorite comic.
"They sing no songs in Hel, nor do they celebrate heroes . . .
. . . For silent is that dismal realm and cheerless . . .
. . . But the story of the Gjallerbru and the god who defended it is whispered across the nine worlds . . .
. . . And when a new arrival asks about the one to whom even Hela bows her head . . .
. . . The answer is always the same . . .
[panel of Skurge atop a mountain monsters, hacking at the demons with a spent weapon]
He stood alone at Gjallerbru . . .
. . . And that answer is enough.
"They shall learn that it is not for nothing we are called....The Avengers!"
Wow. That "First Blood - Last Man" quote gives me goosebumps even without the slow fade of Skurge to accompany it.
One of the best comics ever written, bar none.
Have a Great Day,

My end goal and greatest hope: Mat 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
