    Weekly Comic Book Review - M. Staples Aug 16, 2008

    As for the art, the Doug Braithwaite's penciling is fairly well done; at least there is certainly nothing to complain about. No, the art complaints in this issue come from the inks and colors. The complaint about inks is simple: there are none. Granted, Braithwaite does some great work, he is in severe need of inks – almost everything looks way too sketchy. Likewise, most of Paul Mounts' colors are way too muted. The colors don't necessarily need to be eye-poppingly vibrant (indeed, that may have harmed the issue), but they needn't be so dull either. So while this may have a great story, the art could use a bit of improvement. Nonetheless, I definitely think this deserves a buy, especially if you are reading Secret Invasion or Thor.

    Strangely, many of the "Secret Invasion" tie-ins are in danger of eclipsing the central series -- indeed, the majority of them already seem to contain more action than five issues of the parent series! While it's perhaps not that important in terms of the overall plot, Fraction promises to deliver a decent Thor read. Ultimately, that's what makes the crossovers work. Read Full Review

    Most readers of Thor will be happy to know that the spin-off SI: Thor keeps the quality and themes that they've enjoyed for the better part of a year. In terms of the grand scheme of the event it might not be hugely important, but it does tell a great Thor story and continues the character's banner year. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Joey Davidson Aug 12, 2008

    On a final note, Ill address the art. It looks great. I've come to expect a lot from the way Copiel delivers the Thor world. But Braithwaite more than delivers an epic visual, and I can safely say that I'm pleased to see the Secret Invasion: Thor story in such good hands. Things look like they will extend pretty well into Thor's world during the heated conflict. Fans looking to stretch their SI experience will be hard pressed to find an outlet better than Secret Invasion: Thor. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 13, 2008

    I want to give it a Must Read, but I just don't think it has any meat to this setup issue to warrant it. There is a lot of promise for next issue and I'm sure Fraction will be able to deliver. Read Full Review
