War of the Realms is about to break loose in the Marvel Universe, and now we have our first look at some preview pages by artist Russell Dauterman and colorist Matt Wilson, featuring not only the Avengers but some familiar Asgardian villains as well. The pages aren’t lettered, but the big action beats mean fans shouldn’t have too much trouble deducing the events depicted.

As described in Marvel’s press release:

Asgard. Alfheim. Heven. Jotunheim. Muspelheim. Niffleheim. Nidavellir. Svartalfheim. Vanaheim.

All of the Ten Realms have fallen to Malekith and his army…except one: Midgard. Home to Thor’s beloved humans. Home to heroes and gods alike. Now, at last, it burns. And Thor won’t even be there to see it.

All hell breaks loose in New York City as Malekith and his allies begin their invasion—and the greatest heroes of the Marvel Universe watch as Earth falls…

Jason Aaron explains:

“I have been building towards War of the Realms for the entire duration of my Thor run. So we’re talking six years and 80-something issues and counting. The story really begins when that war that’s been brewing for years in the pages of Thor explodes here in Midgard. And at that point, it’s bigger than a Thor battle; everyone becomes a part of that battle.”

Aaron has been the shepherd of Marvel’s thunder god since 2012, having written three different versions of the main series — Thor: God of Thunder, Thor, and The Mighty Thor — along with the Thors miniseries in 2015. He won the 2016 Eisner Award as best writer for Thor and four other series collectively.

War of the Realms #1 (of 6) thunders into comic stores April 3.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.
