Yep he mentioned it on Facebook - I'm super excited to see this back. 6 issues coming and I'm so stoked.

First issue of the new Ragnarok 6-parter out today, will have a reason to travel to my LCS on a Wednesday for the first time in ages (the new Vampirella series by Christoper Priest also a factor in that trip).

Tangent: I discovered via Twitter the other day that Simonson abandoned a career in palaeontology to pursue his artistic ambitions, which makes his signature suddenly make a lot more sense…!

I have. It's good but it's all set up. Some of those pages of Odin's story are amazing though.

Ha! I never knew that. The signature does make a lot of sense.

Oh yes but what set up. And that summary of Ragnarok was quite something.
