Marvel's December Solicits

The December solicits are up and what has caught my eye so awesomely? A reprinting of the most awesome comic book run ever made:
THOR VISIONARIES: WALTER SIMONSON VOL. 1 TPB (NEW PRINTING)
Written by WALTER SIMONSON
Penciled by WALTER SIMONSON
Cover by WALTER SIMONSON
Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson’s work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same. That is the mark of a true visionary. Collecting THOR #337-348.
288 PGS./All Ages ...$29.99
ISBN: 978-0-7851-3189-2

Yes. Yes. This is what I'm talking about. Somebody at Marvel heard my plea.

This is interesting, but I'm not going ot buy it, considering the story is pure shite.

Other than that, most of the solicits are "classified" until the end of
Secret Invasion. So nothing perks my interest.
