Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1

ANGELA-ASGARDS-ASSASSIN-11I’ve really liked how Angela has been integrated into the Marvel Universe, and I think that this series is in more than capable hands with Kieron Gillen and Phil Jimenez’s hands.

There is a lot of exposition in this issues, as told in a sub-story by Sera, an angel from the realm of Heven that has been her friend for some time. By the end of the issue, Angela and Sera appear to be in Oklahoma somewhere in the vicinity of New Asgard. The two are confronted by a super angry Thor, Sif and the Warriors Three, setting up the next issue.

Between Angela and the previous runs on Journey Into Mystery that have focused on Kid Loki and Sif, the non-Thor characters of Asgard have been getting quite a lot of exposure the last few years. After being supporting characters for the Thunder God, it’s great getting to see them being moved to the forefront.

But what really sticks out in this issue is Jimenez’ artwork. His take on Angela looks great; she’s still sexy as anything, but doesn’t look like a bikini model running around with a sword like some other artists would do.

This is a great series that I think will be really fun to read as a trade. This is on my hit list.
