Journey Into Mystery #633 Review by (August 26, 2013)
Review: This kid is a delight—anyway, the scene at the malt shop is terrific (and the corresponding one in issue #636 even better as they bookend the story) and Son of Satan makes a nice foil. Kieron Gillen’s sense of humor makes even a group called the Fear Lords amusing and entertaining.

Comments: “Shattered Heroes.” The Fear Lords are The Dweller, D’Spayre, the Lurking Unknown, the Straw Man, Kkallakku, Nox, and Nightmare. They were introduced in DR STRANGE (1991) # 31; only Nightmare and D’Spayre have appeared separately. Cameo by Volstagg.
