    Why does everything need to spelled out ahead of time? Why can't it just be "a big new threat shows up and the heroes need to take it down"?

    It's about some conspiracy from WWII involving the Red Skull which comes back to bite the heroes, especially Cap and Thor, in the ass in the present day. Said conspiracy involves some forgotten Norse God of Fear. Sounds interesting enough to me.

    Is this book the same one that was solicited as Fear Itself: Prologue?

    Cause we have known this for some time now and if they are trying to get us to buy stuff they should say something new that will get us excited.

    Yip. The change was announced last week on Diamond's website. Also, the book will now be 40 pages, not the original 32, but I'm guessing that just means the addition of some kind of Saga recap, or Handbook entries.

    Fear Itself: Prologue (Reg.: JAN110692, Var.: JAN110693, $3.99) has been retitled Fear Itself: Book of the Skull #1, and will run 40 pages, not 32 pages.
    My comic collection. Go on, have a look. You know you want to .

    If it's one thing that kills big stories, it's this. All too often they tell us explicitly that somebody dies. Kind of diminishes the impact if you have time to rage about it in advance, especially since it's a known fact that most characters won't stay dead no matter how many "Dead means dead" edicts go out.

    I saw that last week and thought it was kind of a dumb move. At least with "Prologue" you know that its a starting point. Now with Book of the Skull, it just seems like a random tie in.

    I am OK with a saga type recap, I would love OHotMU entries... as long as the price doesn't go up, more pages are always welcome.

    Ugh. Not only won't they tell us what its about, they won't tell us how it ends. Why can't they release Fear Itself 7 first and make us all happy?!?

    Stupid Marvel making us wait. Hmmph. :(
