I can't resist it. I've put all of the War of the Realms stuff on my pull list at the comics shop.

I can't believe I'm doing this to myself again. Just say NO to crossovers, AC.

But Norse cosmology is at the heart of this crossover. I love Norse cosmology. This is "What if the Marvel Universe was invaded by the Poetic Edda?"

If DC was doing this story with DC characters, it would be just as irresistible to me. Norse cosmology! Oh man. Norse cosmology rewired my cerebrum.

Just make it good, Marvel. Please.

Considering that the writer has butchered and emasculated Thor and made odin into an abusive and cowardly drunk.....

....wait for the TPB

Is there a Com-Anon organization to help poor guys like you? ;\)

Seriously... just say no. Um...

Anyway, I'm the total opposite. For the first time ever, I'm dropping titles for being part of the crossover event.

The whole thing is so insidious, though. I mean, the 12 steps would have me looking to my higher power, and I immediately starting thinking what that would mean, and then I think about Yggdrasil and - ugh. The Norse cosmology is the closest thing I have to a higher power! Jason Aaron has turned the 12 steps against me! It's diabolical!

That's usually my default response. I've said no to every crossover in recent memory except X-Men versus Inhumans (which I actually liked, partly because I was oblivious to the umpteen continuity errors).

Which titles are you dropping?

I'll say this much as a sop to my self-respect:

Not even War of the Realms can induce me to buy the Avengers comic right now.

I predict Thor will rise to new heights at the end of this.

Yet Odin isn't like that in Aaron's CAVEnger stories. I think Aaron has a plan for this too.

You'll also love to learn - if you didn't already know - that Jane Foster will have a role in War of the Realms.

Oh yes she was foreshadowed in the last issue of the wimp of hammers as being cancer-clean(for now) and then there was a crack of thunder in the sky....

so yes I fully expect us to be tortured with the return of She-Ra THor

I predict right now that Marvel will produce a War of the Realms video game.

Yeah, I stopped buying anything written by Aaron a while ago.

Asgardians of the Galaxy
Champions
Fantastic Four
Captain Marvel

On the other hand, I will be getting the X-Men mini, since it deals with Moonstar.
