Newsarama has the wordless preview of the conclusion to the Galactus Seed story arc.

No words are needed. Just... DAMN!

Make mine MARVEL!

Love the cinematic climate and viewpoint of this - the "wide angle" shot with the clouds and Galactus casting colors and shadows, the silhouettes of Thor and Sif in the foreground as dust picks up. You can feel the energy charge in the air and the wind being pushed back by the display of power.

Ive really learned to appreciate Oliver Coipel over the years. Couldn't stand his work on House of M but he seems to have gotten better at adding more "energy" and expression to his work and gotten more experimental in panel layout (not to mention he does incredible work when he has a vibrant colorist).

The guy's an amazing artist, an "A-Lister" and still manages to be on a monthly book (ive seen way too many Marvel artist get lazy after their big break).

He has gotten a lot less stiff in his work. His old Thor run and this one were infinitely better looking than House of M.

As for his keeping a schedule, I think that's only with a whole load of time. His recent Thor run was quite badly delayed at points, although I'm not sure how much of that was down to JMS.

I don't know. The reason JIM is so well loved is because its a total character piece for Loki. The Mighty Thor is just spectacle. Its like everyone got lost in the fight. I'm not feeling it.

I disagree. I love JIM Loki tales but MT has a great cosmic/god feeling to it. Edging into space-opera.

I worry that without the human aspect of the story you can't get too cosmic or godly without losing something. The myth is Perseus vs the Minataur to save the sacrifices, Theseus vs Medusa to save Andromeda, Hercules vs The Hydra to atone for the murder of his family. They resonate, Zeus and his brothers vs Kronas for power is incidental. The gods themselves are selfish, angry, vengeful etc...and the world has to suffer through them. The character comes from the human struggle.

Thor usually does a good job at making the gods more human but this is perhaps too godly.

You mixed up Perseus and Theseus. ;)
Have you read the bits with Volstagg the Voluminous and the tiny men of Broxton? Those were all the human I needed.

I always do that. I was so sure I'd gotten them right this time around though. LOL

The Volstagg stuff is comedic. Its not human drama or sacrifice.

I think Broxton and Bill shore up the human side quite nicely.

Depends who is inside the armour I suppose

Though as Odin is the one who cast the "Only the one who is worthy" spell, I don't see why he can't suspend it (as he did in JL/Avengers when Superman got to carry it briefly)

As I recall, the Destroyer Armor was originally designed to attempt to repel the Fourth Host of Celestials, it's actually designed to absorb EVERYTHING within Asgard in a last ditch attempt to stop them. The first time Odin entered it, it killed everyone in Asgard for power and still lost to The One Above All

Holy shit. So it was their attempt to fight capital G God. That is pretty cool.

Basically. It follows that it would at least have a chance against Galactus under those auspices, although it's always a little unclear as to who among the upper rung of the Cosmic Marvel hierarchy. The Celestials are at least on par with Galactus, and possibly much more powerful, and the Skyfathers who build The Destroyer at least thought it had a chance.

Then again, hopefully Odin isn't prepared to sacrifice himself and everyone in Asgard and Broxton to win this contest, so maybe not.

Maybe the Earthmother Goddesses will save the day again?

My impression (I don't think they've ever fought) is that Galactus is strongr than a celestial... But that there's a whole bunch of them, and only One Galactus.

One Above All of the Celestias is *probably* not the same One Above All who is, essentially, God (boss of the Living Tribunal, etc.)

The head honcho of the Celestials was titled "The One Above All," but I think it was actually Arishem and a handful of others from the Fourth Host that melted the Destroyer down with Odin and all the Asgardians inside.

I don't recall capital G God appearing in a Marvel comic except that one issue of Fantastic Four.

For years I thought that the only really good Galactus story is the one where he first comes to earth as well as the Ultimate Galactus Trilogy. Otherwise, any story after with him seems to bear no weight to it, but this is the best Galactus story I've seen in a while.

I've been enjoying this, especially the art, but i have a really hard time believing that Odin could stand up to Galactus in a fight, in any way. They've shown Galactus, laying waste to Zeus, and it took him no time at all, and he's at least on par with Odin. Still...i am willing to sit and enjoy the ride for now, i just miss Bill & Kelda.
Will any writer ever bring them together again?

I love love love how powerful the two panels with Galactus standing down (I would assume) are.

And, obviously, the stunning work of the entire spread.

I am loving the art, and I'm loving the Volstagg sub-plot but I dislike a bit how Fraction writes Thor (he comes off as dickish).

And his Sif until recently was... just... there... But then again Simonson's portrayal of Sif ruined any other Sif characterization for me (his version of her reigns supreme).

Simonson is the only writer to ever write her well ever. I still say shes better off well alway from Thor. She should me more like Valkyrie who has become her own character. Sif needs to break loose. It was a mistake to end the whole Beta Ray Bill thing, that was good for her.
