- journey into mystery #647“i am sick to death of watching everything that i love, everything that i am, be destroyed and mutilated time after time. asgardia should be so strong that no one dare attack. it should not even be a thought and yet our enemies behave as though it is a delightful passing fancy!”
“that is not true.”
“it is true. and we tell our young ones that the stories of asgardia as though they are stories and not lessons. we are so busy looking forward that i fear we forget what brought us here.”
Jane: Well, technically, Gaea is one of ours. But I confess I really don’t get all this earth mother mumbo jumbo. No offense.
Sif: We have that in common. How could I be offended? I have never talked to a vegetable in my life.
Jane & Sif: Except for Thor.
Sif: He can be a little starchy.
Jane: Surprisingly green sometimes.
Sif: He is bold, but you and I in the same room would scare him half to death. And rightly so.

Ok, listen up u little shits
It’s the last issue of Journey Into Mystery next month. I’m distressed, like, #645 levels of distressed and I’m guessing a lot of other people are too. So if you’re feeling the bad sort of feels why not join me in asking everyone to do two things:
1) Buy it, damn all your eyes (and buy the Stronger Than Monsters TPB that’s out, too, so we can at least get the last collected volume out *rage tears*)
2) How about we all write about Journey Into Mystery that week. Doesn’t have to be the current run- JiM is old as balls and has had many permutations over its incredibly long lifespan. In fact, it would be really great to get a good coverage across the ages; I’ve got Marvel Unlimited so will try and do some early funny stuff as well as the more recent gross sobbing and mighty punching. If you want to write about it, drop me an ask or something so I can remember to keep you in touch about any ~developments~ and/or plans.
Ok I lied, there’s a third thing: 3) Tag your wailing, denial, rage and trying-to-remember-the-good-times-not-focus-on-the-fact-they’re-drawing-to-a-close so I can find it.
I’ll make a unifying blog for it, reblog ‘em all there and we can have a lovely scrapbook of how much we have sobbed snottily and disgustingly about this series. And maybe we can like, print stuff off and send them to the relevant writers if we’re feeling super soppy and like we can stop crying long enough to get to the post office.
I have never organised a thing like this before, heLP.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, MR GILLEN? WHY?
I already had an overabundance of feels about JIM and Loki.
