Review: And this issue adds a lovers’ quarrel to the mix as Sif and Bill bicker over knowing each other too well. And Valerio Schiti’s facial expressions are a hoot. But now Immonen adds a touch of pathos as BRB’s tragic losses are compounded. Very well done.

Comments: Ti Asha Ra is the last surviving female Korbinite, created for Beta Ray Bill by a grateful Galactus in BETA RAY BILL: GODHUNTER. Sif met her previously in the SIF one-shot in 2010.

Sif thinks her dead but Bill will not admit it. Bill discovers that Skuttlbutt is also gone and is now even more alone than before. While Sif prepares Ti Asha Ra’s body for her funeral, she suddenly remembers the missing Gaea and rushes to the aline ship. There is Gaea, about to be absorbed into the alien’s enormous maw….
