That would have been a question that makes sense.

And then Spidey came in the latest Captain America movie and was the best thing in the entire film.

You know, technically, Gillen could have still used that joke, since WicDiv still takes place in 2014 and I'm not sure the deal was in place back then.

[up] Sure, but it would be jarring to readers. It probably was better to change the joke.

So, since the plot's moved on quite a bit, what's everyone's take on the things that've happened recently?

[up] "Sweet shit-baking craphole" comes to mind. Also, Cassie's line from the latest issue: "Fucking fuckers fucking up all the fucking fucks!"

So, you know, I'm still enjoying this.

It may as well be the tag line of the comic but my reaction to today's issue "well that escalated"

Yep. And now we know how batshit Sakhmet is.

What did you think of 455? I loved it and I thought is was much better and more coherent than 1841.

Any theories for the next arc? I think the Pantheon's gonna start to sober up a bit, and that Baal will attempt to defeat Sakhmet.

Well, now that I'm all caught up, I can speculate properly.

Baal said that he'd take down anyone who stepped out of line, so yeah, I expect a confrontation between him and Sakhmet soon. How the others will feel about this is up for debate, although I can't imagine too many of them would be okay with the murder of innocent people. And depending on how things go, Sakhmet might not stop with Ammy's followers.

Speaking of which, I expect that Amaterasu will get in some hot water for this whole thing.

In any case, there's still the bit with Ananke's letter at the end? Just who was she writing to? And why did it disappear in manner resembling Inanna's powers?

Thoughts?

I heard a theory that the pink sparkles were just Woden Tech, which sounds plausible. Any thoughts on who Pink Woden (from #14) is?

If I recall correctly, that one was blue, not pink.

[up] You're right, I just call it Pink because of it's speech bubbles.

I heard a theory that Woden is actually David himself, but his son is the Blue/Pink. . I'll link to it: http://myfirstsearchengine.tumblr.com/post/159497625475/i-woden-be-so-sure. If so, I conjecture Pink is the real god with powers.

I used to have a theory that Jenny is still alive, but I don't know anymore.

Right, so, new issue today.

Not too much to say at this point - mostly the aftermath of the last one, although it's looks like shit will hit the fan next month.

That being said, does anybody know who Laura was sleeping with at the start?

I figured it to be a random fan that had a sorta resemblance to Lucifer.

I suppose?

...Actually, reading through that bit again, that's probably the case - they certainly act like one.

Oh my.

Wasn't expecting Amaterasu to die this soon - I had pegged Sakhmet or Dio for the next to go (although Dio's not looking so good). Not entirely sure how I feel about this - I kind of wanted the consequences for her behavior to have a more...direct impact on her demise, I suppose. Still, I guess this works.

I saw it coming as soon as she entered the museum. It became inevitable at that point. But holy crap it was gruesome. Visible vertebrae! Yeesh.

Welcome to "that escalated" the comic book where that escalated.

For all intents and purposes, three more down. And Odin has flown the coop. And big last panel cliffhanger secret toy surprise.

Ananke bodyjumped into her using the machine Woden/David created?
