The Skrulls are invading Asgard and it’s up to Thor to fight off their armies, but to make things wors,e the citizens of the small innocent town of Broxton , Oklahoma may end up as collateral damage!  Now that there are two cities to defend Thor is going to need a lot of help and Beta Ray Bill is just the man for the job.  He’s back and ready to help Thor teach the Skrulls what it means to mess with a God!


"Once again, Matt Fraction puts on a clinic entitled ‘How to Freaking Write Thor Comics’ and anyone utilizing the character should pay attention." – ComicsBulletin.Com


"It’s abundantly clear that Fraction spent more than a few nights researching what makes these myths tick, as he perfectly encapsulates the strident atmosphere in which ancient cultures used to control the masses through fear." – IGN.Com
