I have been reading MW for sometime now and I just wanted to take a moment to write a review because the magazine is truly amazing. I have become accustom to not picking up the new issue until I have a day off because I can't just read one article. I found I would try to read an article here and there but next thing I knew an hour had past and I'm enthralled with the illustrations and writing. I particularity enjoyed this issue for the articles of 'Hostility in the Holy Land' and 'Odin, warrior god'. With a huge resurgence in popularity with Norse mythology, it was quite refreshing to see an article written where the author backed up his arguments with facts. Mr. Burfield did an amazing job touchy on all the different aspects that gave Odin his legendary reputation. The article gave you enough to keep you satisfied, but I know I will be digging deeper into stories of the great Norse God. And I have MW and Mr. Burfield to thank for that.

All and all I can't wait for the next issue, keep up the good work.
