By the way, I imagine you've seen all the pictures I put from April 1, at least, the thread is much more active than before.
I just saw this coming out in July and really it is interesting to see Amora wielding a sword, what do you think about the image?
MIGHTY THOR #17
(W) Matt Fraction (A) Pepe Larraz (CA) Walter Simonson
Enchantress and her Keep run riot…and no one stirs to stop them!
And if that’s not enough…who dares stop the Deconsecrator!
How can the Nine Realms escape a nightmare with no end?
Looking at the synopsis of the comic in question, I fear that Fraction ignores everything concerning the Enchantress and he does what he wants without worrying about the continuity of the character, much like following the last issues or since he began his run in the Thor book. I have no faith in this writer, I will read this story but I do not expect too much, maybe the reviews when is published say otherwise, for now, I give it a try because it is the return of the Enchantress.
I am not going to blame before actual story is out.
While I am happy her being used, I am concerned about her portrayal. Especially her motivation to do this. As I kinda hinted before, I hope this is not going crazy over grief (Like in Annual that Fraction wrote). Nor can I read any clear hints even what is her goal, I certainly hope it is not to keep entire Asgardia to eternal nightmare.
Also considering method this fits more Nightmare than Amora and with his recent actions in JIM I wonder if their related, probably not.
Iīll give it a try to know what sense can have that new storyline, at least, Bendis had more respect with a character like her on Avengers Prime than Fraction wrote in his one-shot about Skurge the Executioner.

It is a Simonson Illustration..it is undeniably wicked-awesome!
As for the story and given who is writing it? Well...that is an awesome cover.
Sun and Moon
Honestly, with the breakup with Thor just before Ragnarok and her being in the dumps after fraction's annual, I'm surprised she isn't just living like a celebutante. Amora's always been so vain I expected her in LA living and manipulating like a star since her return
BAD TOUCHSCREEN TYPER
I wanted to see something different about Enchantress, but change her so much, almost ignoring what made her truly special is something hard to see.
And also seeing the trend of Fraction of ignoring the continuity of the characters doing what he want, he has a good start to his stories, but he is unable to develop them well and give them a good resolution.
Well, we'll see in 2 months when this story begins to be published, what does Fraction, but I expect very little.
I'm really liking how this thread has sprung back to life. Great pictures, Charlie!
I'm also eager to see Amora swinging her sword (and Lord knows what else) in Thor soon.
