Jennifer It feels like a good start to what I hope will be a strong series. There's plenty in here for both fans of Asgard stories and general comic readers, though the dialogue as always is a bit thick for non-Thor readers.

I think this issue effectively establishes some distance from her Original Sin origin story, which was basically the plot of the 80's cartoon She-Ra pilot (though I admit I kind of loved that). The values she was raised are really screwed up and I like the weird gray area she exists in morally.

This issue does have something of a Red Sonja feel to it, but I know we can trust writer Kieron Gillen to take that aesthetic somewhere new and interesting, if Marvel will allow it. Or put some clothes on her...

I look forward to next issue and reading what Kieron Gillen will do with this character.
