    While I don't put much stock into reviews (pro or con) I am looking forward to this book. Nice to see Sif starring in a title.

    I'll be ignoring this. Cannot wait! I think my issue is either coming Saturday, or next Wednesday by latest.

    I like the Asgardian speak and wish Marvel hadn't dropped it to the extent that they have already. The thee's and thou's made Asgard seem like Asgard...this is another world we're talking about here. Where is your imagination? Like i said in another thread...a dumbed down readership.

    Three new reviews courtesy of CBR, Newsarama and iFanboy.

    Things are looking fairly good for Sif so far. Hopefully Immonen can overcome her dialogue pitfalls as she gets more comfortable on the book.

    Sounds good, hope Immonen can keep this up and maybe pull in some new readers with this run.

    What makes Sif standout in the company of the Warriors 3? Why don't the 3 men goad her like a female, or treat her as below them, instead of an equal as they do? What has she done that commands respect? Has Sif derided the warriors 3? Beaten them in combat, saved their lives, or just fought beside them when the going gets tough? Why is Sif accorded the respect she has been given? She's just some female that just happens to be from Asgard, isn't she?

    Can't tell if trolling...or very sexist.

    There are no dialogue pitfalls. The writer is not responsible for the reading capabilities of the reviewer.

    Good to know.

    This is probably my most anticipated book of Marvel NOW.

    The dialogue isn't dumbed down. While this may cause problems for some readers, anyone coming off reading Gillen's run is going to be used to formal language and syntax.

    Anyway, I thought the issue was great and I wonder where it's going to go next, based on the last couple of pages. It was also pretty great for making avatars from...

    Just read it and thought it was pretty good. I didn't have any problems with the dialogue either. It is formal but it fits the world of Asgard.

    Will definitely be giving the next few issues a look.

    And Schiti is definitely one to keep an eye out for. Good on Marvel for scouting him.

    I'm just going to convert this to a spoilers/reviews thread so if you want to talk JiM this is the thread for it.

    That was a twist on Sif I did not expect. Reminds me in a way of the spoilers:

    end of spoilers.
