    The X-Men take on Loki, god of mischief! In the Arctic Circle, Alpha Flight and the X-Men discover a power that could save the world — but are they willing to pay the terrible price? Is Loki truly trying to give Earth a godly boon, or are his motives darker than the heroes dare dream? And when the X-Men incur Loki’s wrath, it’s the novice New Mutants who take the fall…and rise to Asgard! The X-Men ride to the rescue, but what if the New Mutants don’t want to go home? And as Storm falls under Loki’s sway, Magik is ensorcelled by the Enchantress, and Mirage has a fateful encounter with the Valkyrie, can even the mightiest mutants survive the magic of myth? Collecting X-MEN & ALPHA FLIGHT (1995) #1-2, NEW MUTANTS SPECIAL EDITION #1 and X-MEN ANNUAL (1970) #9.

      I just sent a request to my comic shop to see if they will hold these for me. I already have the Asgardian Wars stories... both in their original comic form and a TPB edition, but its a GREAT story with INCREDIBLE art and more than worth the $29.99 cover price!

      I agree. Asgardian Wars is one of my all-time favourites. Arthur Adams is an artistic genius !!!

      Whenever people ask me what my favourite issue of a comic is, I can't answer; but I say for line art - these issues.

      It's good to see confirmation on how long World War Wendigo is. 5 issues of AF guest-starring is a good thing.
