Thanks, I'll seek out JJ and that Daredevil you mentioned toot sweet.
Re: magic. I actually HATE Magic stuff in comics. What I meant to say was that a lot of the Thor/Asgard stuff is set up as "science that looks like magic because we don't understand" ... that bit reminds me of Byrne's '80s Krypton-heavy Superman stuff, which toed a somewhat similar line but kept thing much more on the sci-fi side (indeed, magic was the enemy).
Thor's a bit too "mag-icky" for me sometimes. But when the stories gear more toward space opera than "spirit-spell blah blah" I'm much more interested.
