man, that sucks about JiM. its been really good with Sif as the lead character.
Agreed. The Beta Ray Bill story is going to conclude and #655 in August is the last one.
Continued reading at CBR in a Fearless Defenders thread says that starting with issue #6 the book goes to $3.99. They've been $2.99 except #4 which was an AoU tie-in. Speculation is that Marvel is going to try and keep this afloat with the higher price tag.
