HAVE AT THEE!

It's part 3 of Hercules: Prince of Power, and we visit "heavily cratered" Titan, where Hercules fights a Thanos-worshipping grave robber named Shreck! No, really! (Eddie Murphy is not in this issue!) - Also, Skyppi's "date" with Eros, a god dies, and Recorder "inferfaces" with I.S.A.A.C.!

This week we go back to the Iron Age, as we cover "The Binding of Loki", courtesy of Snorri Sturluson and others. After the death of Balder, Loki goes off to hide on earth disguised as a fish! A little Asgardian sushi, anyone?
