Much like the last issue of this title, I found the forced archaic language tropey and hard to get through. It's not hard to undestand, so much as it is cumbersome and overdone. That's really the appeal of the book, I think; the fact that it's overdone and trying to be parody or satire (especially of Marvel's Thor title) is the point. For me, as a reader, it's still too much. It's not an enjoyable read for me, with too many words that say very little.
Unlike the last issue, which was largely set up and no delivery, there are hints of an actual plot in this book. The point is to keep the reader wanting to continue on to the next issue, to find out what other secrets the three main god characters are hiding from each other. As a writing tactic, it's effective enough, though I don't really like the title enough to recommend buying several issues of it. I was glad to see that this issue did have more seriousness in it, mixed in with the ridiculous and the bizarre.
I would give this, like the last issue, 2.5 stars out of 5. Fans of parodied fantasy should enjoy this if they can deal with the writing style.
