    My grand theory of Wikdiv.
    Or how Persephone changed the rules.

    Rule Two is clearly that there have to be 12 gods. It is added to by a third of the gods having to be used to create the ritual...
  2. Oh dear.

    Oh dear. <Steps slowly away from the can of worms just opened, pausing only to say...> Let’s not worry about the ages of the Richards family too much, considering the art hints that suggest they will...

    I think we can be very sure Aaron is not going for something simple. That isn’t his usual MO. So I agree totally that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions that her issue in his book is just a turning...

    That is the problem though, not the solution. A character can indeed grow and face new challenges but comics is not a medium that fully supports this. Jen is a Hulk. She has to have a challenge that...

    On Jen. It is worth considering that it is a contentious issue whether PTSD even has what could be considered a cure. Once a writer gives this diagnosis it is tricky to pull back from this. Sure Jen...

    The sliding timescale only worked for a brief time window when editorial dreamed it up. It’s utter nonsense and best ignored.



    Indeed. It’s not even a matter of agreeing. We either recognise...

    Watch this space. I have a very long post in the works that tries to cover this theory. It is not a simple thing to express.

    I would go with what Gillen actually talks about, which is this is a story about the cultural renewal of mankind every hundred years or so, and also about what artists do once they gain success. So...

    Some good points.

    The number four is more than just the number of the rules. The four clicks of the fingers does seem to be a deliberate motif that ties into music as well as the ritual.

    The...

    Wow. Issue 36 is ballsy. 11 pages of montage! As a digital reader each page was a surprise as I was half expecting it to stop or go to a different panel layout. But no it kept coming!

    Then three...

    Collectors seem to be abuzz about a whole slew of Kirby art hitting the market in the near future. Based upon some collections from the recently departed. I am not enough of an expert to know who...

    Judging by the vauge mention of Next Year for War of the Realms I imagine this will be a summer event, which usually means we begin to see the story develop sometime around May (which is why Marvel...

    Yes I certainly see this as a probable reason. I just don't think it worked very well for my tastes. As you can see I was somewhat conflicted over this issue, despite generally enjoying the story so...

    I agree. This all seems highly likely given the dialogue in At the Gates of Valhalla. Indeed that is quite likely to mark the end of Aaron's Thor run, and it would seem appropriate to dust off Jane...

    This thread is nothing to do with Odinson's worthiness issues. It is specifically ruled off-topic by the opening post:

    If you're a fan of Thor, and want to talk about her without having to come...

    This is only a problem when people want it to be. Simple as that. We could equally pull out a comic from any era of comics and find this "problem". This is just how comics are. You may demand more as...

    I think the definite strangeness comes from Aaron actually trying to get a lot of things onto the page a little too fast. In an age when comics are often accused of not doing enough in an issue this...

    This issue is a real mishmash. Partly because it is almost entirely set-up disguised as a heavy action issue. The action doesn't really progress the story, so is mostly inconsequential. That in...

    A few points.

    ‘At the Gates of Valhalla’ was a strange beast. When it was solicited it certainly felt like it would be essential reading but it ended up being the combination of an unnecessary...

    If you don’t see the difference in my statement and yours there is little point discussing things at all. I am making a very specific point. No humour involved, no attack on you directly.

    But you are so close to the actual truth that your assertion of "hopelessly unsuccessful and petulant" or "hapless bufoon" stands out as the weak point in the argument. If any of these things were...

    See here is a problem. Continually resorting to humorous straw-man arguments that directly attack me is not conclusive to actually exploring the issue.

    Sure, because if you say that you can undermine a clear thematic element of the story. It is just not viable or intellectually honest to do this piece by piece. You have to look at the context. The...
