Warlock Chronicles #7
Issue(s): Warlock Chronicles #7
...she goes to King Geirrodur of the trolls and gets his army in a fighting mood by cutting off Geirrodur's nose.
She leads the trolls to the Watch.
And they get overwhelmed by the horde.
Meanwhile, Odin does detect something amiss. Personally, i think it's the fact that Balder is making a bid to appear in a Rob Liefeld comic.
Look, Tom Raney's art is nice. I don't mind getting some fight scenes from him. But as with this entire crossover, everything is padded. We didn't need pages and pages of fighting trolls. I do like the use of Geirrodur. On the other hand, i think it's kind of weird that Sif and Bill aren't able to just reason with the Watch and company. Bill and the Surfer are friends, even.
Quality Rating: C-

Sif risking the lives of Thor's friends to keep Odin from finding out does seem out of character. DeFalco has her cured of Mephisto's madness in a backup in Thunderstrike 17- it's possible that he intended her to still be under Mephisto's influence in this story. (Or not- when that backup takes place is a matter of debate.)

For some reason that panel of Bill punching Stephen sticks with me. It lampshades how vulnerable Doctor Strange really is, given the high stakes that he is often involved with.

Fnord, I had the same thought when I saw the panel with new action figure "Pouches Balder".
