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.

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.
