Happy Wednesday Fankind! Comic books are a wonderful thing. They can give you a full range of emotions. As a kid, Star Wars #7 excited me beyond words. When I read The Walking Dead #100, I felt shock and horror.
I read The Mighty Thor #705 as soon as it came in, and it honestly made me cry. What Jason Aaron and his team of artist have done over the past few years is nothing less than one of the greatest runs in comic history. And this issue is no exception. With art by Russell Dauterman, Aaron has made on of the most moving issues I have ever read. I highly recommend it.
