  1. Hmmm…. this should be interesting. Sequel to Stormbreaker I guess?

  2. @PraxJavin Yeah, Bill hasn’t forgotten what Galactus did – [SPOILER] weren’t his people saved anyway, and Bill just never knew about it? [/SPOILER] – so he’s off to finish the fight.

     I dunno, though; I like Gillen’s treatment of Bill in that SI: Aftermath one-shot, but I was taken aback from the preview pages and how Thor’s being written. I loved Kano’s work on that one Immortal Iron Fist story he did, though, so I’ll at least give the first issue a try.

     P.S. Dangit, I want Bill to be a part of the Abnett & Lanning Space Adventures!

  3. Enjoyed this first issue. Looking forward to the rest. Pleasantly suprised to find the included reprint of Thor #337 (Beta Rey Bill origin).  Always wanted to read those old issues.

  4. it was good to see beta ray bill.  but he seems so angry.  still love it.

  5. I thought this was pretty good. Not great, but a fun, solid super hero story. As much as I love the cosmic world building of Abnett and Lanning, it’s nice to have a sense of loneliness in the universe, too. 4/5. Good stuff.

  6. Despite my passing knowledge of the character and my increasing weariness of super-hero comics I picked this up because of Kieron Gillen, but mostly because my LCS was offering this on the cheap. Despite reservations, I was pleasantly surprised. The writing is fun, entertaining and often tongue in cheek funny whilst, crucially, always treating the subject matter with complete respect and gravitas. The economic approach to the plot and one liner fueled banter really helps everything zip along, and the art was solid throughout. I’m definitely looking forward to the next issue. 4/5

  7. Glad people mostly seem to be digging it. I had a lot of fun with it.
