Marvel’s The War of the Realms crossover event is in full swing, so it makes perfect sense that the Asgardians of the Galaxy would be caught in the fray. And in Asgardians of the Galaxy #9—on sale Wednesday—writer Cullen Bunn, artist Paolo Villanelli, and the whole creative team take us on a journey as Valkyrie faces off against the dark elf Malekith’s siege of New York City. Bunn and company have done a wonderful job with character development since this title’s inception, so we’re in for a treat as Valkyrie’s battle will surely give us a chance to see the carnage through the goddess’ eyes.
From the official issue description:
A WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN! New York City is overrun with Malekith’s invasion forces. Earth is inches from falling to the Dark Elf King. And with Thor missing in Jotunheim, All-Father Odin injured and All-Mother Freyja about to embark on a mission of her own, Valkyrie is one of the few gods left to face the onslaught. But her fate is intertwined with another. What of Annabelle Riggs, the mortal girl who shares the body of a god? THE RIDE OF THE VALKYRIE begins here!
