After Tara’s death last issue, the story moves onto Woden, the god that gave up his good looks for power and wisdom, which may be the reason why Woden realises not to make Annake angry with him as she’s a very dangerous person to get on the wrong side of as we’ve now seen.

Keiron Gillen uses this issue told mainly in flashback to reveal a few secrets as we have it confirmed just what an evil manipulative bitch Annake is, and how much Wnden is also manipulative, not to mention a smart, but evil bastard that’s been helping Annake murder and set up the other gods. Woden though isn’t exactly playing it honestly with Annake either so the issue acts as a set-up as it asks new questions.

This issue is made up mainly of previous issue’s art, remixed as it were to create something new and on the whole it works. A few panels here and there are a wee bit forced into the storytelling so they stand out a bit too much but on the whole it’s a brave, and interesting experiment in a series of frequent surprises. If only more mainstream comics tried to do things out the ordinary, ah well…
