    What a cool fight scene! And a huge improvement on the coloring!

    It isn't the coloring, it's the inking. Helps with definition.

    This arc pales in comparison to the God Butcher arc, but it's still entertaining enough for what was basically a movie tie-in. No consequence an arc with Malekith appeared just before Dark World came out.

    I still feel it's a very good read. The bigger difference is the drop-off of the artwork, but that's less a knock on Garney than it is a testament to Ribic's brilliance. Sure, the story feels motivated by the film's release, but Aaron seems to be giving us an ode to the Kirby and Simonson stories with his characterization. If anything, I'm glad that Malekith has resurfaced as a villain in the comics at least. He is an interesting character and a formidable foe for Thor and Asgard. Interesting that Gillen is using him in Iron Man. Apparently, the end of this Accursed arc with have longstanding ramifications for the future of this title, so I'm fairly excited as to how it will end (especially how it ties into the next Ribic-pencilled arc, which looks great).

    Yeah. Guys like Garney need really good inkers who know how to add just that without being overpowering.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.
