The God of Hammers is about to be unleashed! Next month, Donny Cates continues his action-packed Asgardian saga with a brand-new story, and artist Nic Klein is back for twists and turns that not even the All-Father can possibly be ready for in Thor!
The story will provide payoffs to a plot that’s been building up since the very beginning of Cates and Klein’s run—the secret legacy of Thor’s mighty weapon Mjolnir! Mjolnir, the powerful Uru hammer that Thor has wielded in battle for centuries, has gone missing! And nobody, not even the all-seeing Lady Sif, is able to locate it. So Thor must turn to the last person he wants help from: Odin. For until the hammer is found, nobody is safe!
Making his return as series artist, Klein will also make his debut as the series’ new main cover artist. In addition, the issue will have variant covers by superstar artists Gary Frank and Mahmud Asrar as well as Ema Lupacchino’s Infinity Saga Variant Cover. Check out all four covers now plus the newly revealed cover of January’s Thor #21, Part 3 of “God of Hammers.” Be there when the fatal prophecy of the God of Hammers begins in Thor #19 on November 17!

KINGDOMS OF BLOOD! The ten kingdoms of Otherworld must decide: Are Excalibur heroes of the realm, or witchbreed to be put to the stake? The peace brought to Otherworld by their X OF SWORDS victory comes to an end.
The minds at the Disney understood the world of Star Wars before they even owned Lucasfilm. They had been minding the wonder of magic for decades. They knew how to feed their fanbase before they even knew what they wanted. I dare anyone to walk through one of their parks, and not be pulled in by how enchanting the whole place is.
So when they acquired Lucasfilm, they already knew how they wanted to approach the franchise and how to expand it. The continuation of The Clone Wars and the two seasons of The Mandalorian proved just how committed the were to keeping fans interested. Where they really shine is in finding those stories within the universe, like in Rogue One. In one of the first standalone stories about the Bounty Hunters within Star Wars, we get the backstory to a minor character whose origin is much more complicated in Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters – Boushh #1.
We are taken to Ord Mantell City in the Bright Jewel System, where find Boushh and his crew just took back a stolen vehicle for a boss from the Black Sun. We soon find out Boushh had been banned from his home planet Uba IV and often take dangerous jobs to keep fed. As they take on a job form a duplicitous character named Margo, where they must eliminate the executive board of the Tagge Corporation. We soon meet Lady Domina, the head of the corporation who took out most of her family members to rise to the top, and the family’s insidious plans makes The Emperor’s ruminations infantile in comparison. Boushh’s crew finally invades the ship they are, taking out most of the corporation’s security, but they several underestimated Domina. By the book’s end, though Boushh and his guys were defeated, they instead find a compromise, and join forces with Domina to extinguish her enemies.
Overall, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters – Boushh #1 is a story I didn’t expect much from and was pleasantly surprised to find an action packed sidewinder. The story by Alyssa Wong is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, an excellent story that will excite long time fans of Star Wars.
