An interesting ending to an interesting arc, and one that plants plenty of seeds for the future. So Galactus has a new herald in Pastor Mike, and Silver Surfer is once again trapped on Earth, and has been made human (to hilarious, naked results). I’m guessing this is set-up for Fraction’s new Defenders book, which I really can’t wait for, it’s going to be crazy fun. It also seemed that this arc featured a lot of set-up for Fear Itself, such as the appearance of the Serpent in #4 and the growing distrust between Thor and Odin. It’s annoying that it’s come out at the same time as Fear Itself, but it looks like it’ll all work out in the end. Olivier Coipel’s art was once again outstanding, and Laura Martin continues to be the best colourist in the whole nine realms, just brilliant stuff. And of course, more Volstagg fun. I think I’ll re-read this arc once Fear Itself is done, because Fraction is playing an interesting game here, and I’m still not sure where he’s headed.
