We’re back again with Marvels latest comic-book event, The War of the Realms! The God of thunder is back from his battle with the Frost Giants and with his new metal arm, he’s ready for war.

In today’s day in age, getting into comics is easier and less stigmatizing than ever. What with quarter yearly film releases of superhero movies. Streaming services. Apps to read comics.

So, you’d think that the old issue by issue readers would rejoice in this renaissance, right? No, that is not the case.
