I have to say that I am very excited for this issue. I mean come on! Thor against the Phoenix force! That is definitely a battle of epic proportions! I will admit that since my comic book store has closed down, I have not been able to go pick these issues up weekly, but I just downloaded the Marvel App for my iPad and it has been extremely handy with all of my Marvel Comic needs. Definitely worth the download.
These few panels give you an idea of how intense this battle is going to be! I can’t wait to see how Thor manages to take on the Phoenix or how the battle ends, but I guess I will just have to wait until the issue drops on April 23rd!
