On sale now is the second chapter of Fear Itself, the latest event miniseries from Marvel Comics. Written by Matt Fraction (The Mighty Thor, Invincible Iron Man) with artwork by Stuart Immonen (New Avengers, Ultimate Spider-Man) and Wade von Grawbadger (New Avengers, Starman), the series finds Sin, the daughter of the legendary villain Red Skull, unleashing the god of fear, a serpent who will confront the heroes of the Marvel Universe with their greatest nightmares.

Read on for an advance look at issue #2.

In Fear Itself #2, we learn why Odin has retreated Thor and the rest of the Asgardians to their mystical realm, and that the All-Father's plan to defeat the serpent unleashed by Sin is just as dire for the people of Earth as the god of fear itself. But it seems unlikely that the god of thunder will sit still for that, right? Too bad he's been thrown in the magical clink.

Fear Itself #2 is on sale now in comic shops everywhere and is also available online from Things From Another World.
