Item Details

"A war rages between gods as Otherworld-- the collective unconscious home for all magic-- attempts to stave off conquest from the steaming steel Manchester Gods who would obliterate the realm of the fantastical to clear the path for industrialization. When Asgardia claims neutrality in this civil war among gods, Loki embarks on a clandestine operation to act as a one-man intervention force, manipulating both sides toward peace. Can the Knights of the Round Table, Merlyn, Arthur and Captain Britain resist the power of the infernal, industrial North long enough for Loki to bring peace to Otherworld? And can the boy god of mischief broker a peace either side can live with? Plus: Thor is caught in a war spanning eons between two cosmic entities! Can even Galactus and the Silver Surfer tip the balance? An eternal game for the fate of the universe enters its final match, with Oblivion himself ready to take the prize" -- p. [4] of cover.
