    The Cates of Hel #1: Thor #1 Review – The Song of Galactus & Thor

    When comics writer Donny Cates gets a chance at a Marvel series, he takes big shots, and aims for at least one clear, major hook to get readers on board. What if Thanos… won? What if Loki was the Sorcerer Supreme? What if Peter Parker could talk to Spiders? Ok that last one’s like half […]
