I am looking forward to this. I like the art and I do like the ''Why do you talk like that?'' part that they say in unison as well.
If it is a one off thing to "set the tone" as it were, then all well and good...but sixteen more pages of Asgard-Speak is going to ruin this for me.
I've made my peace with the art...I've reconciled the fact that it will never completely be to my liking...so be it.

Storm deserves her very own solo ongoing...unfortunately..."Limited minds place limits on everything but their own foolishness." (aja_c.)
What does the AR do btw?
Well, I'll be Mr Negative here and say that this book might be for me. As always, I'll at least buy it and check it out. I've been plesantly surprised by a lot of books in Marvel Now so we shall see....
I'll try not to be to harsh like a was for YA lol.
That said, she's generally a woman of relatively few words unless riled up and it's usually what makes it funny when she slips into a non-Asgardian turn of phrase every now and then that she's picked up from heroing on Midgard so long. Kinda like when I was reading Incredible Hercules once and literally fell out of my chair laughing when Thor asked Amadeus if he'd beaten Sekhmet by "slipping her a roofie". =P Asgardians learn things from the youtubes too!
I imagine it will tone down though, but don't expect Valkyrie to use shortened words much. English isn't her first language, after all.
Just by looking at this preview alone, tells me that we're in for a great series starter.
"Freedom is the Right of ALL Sentient Beings" - Optimus Prime
I hate to rain on y'all 's parade, but that dialogue was pretty terrible.
Still checking it though.
I like "chick" books and I like obscure Marvel characters like Valkyrie. I also found the dialogue to this preview clever and upbeat. The art, however, is completely uninspired: These characters are in a fight and they have virtually expressionless faces. The sword-thrust by Valkyrie is completely without any sense of force. And the hordes of undead have no sense of menace or danger whatsoever. Count me (unfortunately) out.
Currently Reading: Hawkeye, Jupiter's Legacy, Mighty Avengers, Saga, Superior Spider-Man & Superior Foes (Bye: Fearless Defenders & Young Avengers)
Looking forward to what Mr. Bunn has to offer to this book. However, I did find the dialogue a tad off putting.
The bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.
