For decades, the Dark Gods of the ONA have frightened and allured occult scholars. Now, for the first time anywhere, the veil of mystery surrounding them is lifted in a simple catalogue of these acausal beings. Are they literal devils or metaphorical symbols? You be the judge.

Ever since Marvel comics retooled and relaunched it's Asgardian super hero Thor a year and a half ago, the Norse God of Thunder's adventures have been one of the best selling comic books in the industry. And no story better typifies the style of action and drama that is taking readers by storm than this one. Upon his return from an adventure in an alternate universe, Thor had discovered Asgard in ruins and his fellow gods missing, perhaps dead. On top of that, a brush with death forced the Thunder God to merge with a mortal, emergency medical technician Jake Olson. Now, Thor faces his greatest challenge yet as he must confront the mysterious Dark Gods who destroyed his homeland, and free his people from the chains of repression. Equal parts Wagnerian splendor and Shakespearian tragedy, this tale unfolds with powerful visuals that reimagine the legends of Norse mythology and merge them seamlessly with the technological sensibilities of today.
Nan Nepsdóttir is a Norse goddess who has mourned the death of her husband Baldr for the past thousand years. When she learns that what she's believed for centuries is a lie, anger carries her down to Earth, and she is determined to get her husband back. Cadric Odinson has pushed his former life as Baldr away so he can focus on his work with the Order of Odin. What started out as a way to forget the wife and family he'd left behind, has become his life's work, and someone is trying to rip it all away from him. The last thing he needs is the complications of a wife, no matter that his desire for her burns as hot as it did a thousand years ago. Now, as Cadric battles an old enemy, Nan needs to convince him to give their marriage a second chance, while keeping a secret from him that could destroy the love rekindling between them.
