    Just got the latest issue and honestly, I think this is one of the better books JMS has ever written. It's mythic, has the right amount of humour, presents characters in a slightly updated form that still feels "classic" while treating them respectfully (Volstagg's awesomeness must be seen to be believed), still dips into the shared Marvel U continuity without getting overwhelmed and caught up in the latest "event", and on top of all that, is still telling a very engaging story with some real emotional punch
    Poor Bill, poor Kelda!
    .

    So, anyone else currently having this one pulled? Really, it is currently the only Marvel book I'm getting after dropping Hulk.

    Now that JMS has left, I'm unsure if I'll continue reading it.
