    Mighty Thor #12 is a well-crafted story that could be easily interpreted as a piece of Norse mythology. It is incredibly well written and beautifully drawn. Jason Aaron is one of Marvel's best writers right now and he shows it in this comic. Russell Dauterman is one of Marvel's best artists right now, but in this issue, he makes way for the work of Irving Frazer who does a stunning job of creating a comic that is visually engaging and uniquely stylized through color and technique to give an epic and ancient feel. Mighty Thor #12 is definitely a fantastic read. Read Full Review

    By the end of the issue, there is a certain air of mystery about Mjolnir, and an almost heavenly glow surrounds it. As a standalone issue, it is an astounding throwback to Norse Mythology. The creative team cranks out an epic adventure that is bound to leave you breathless. THE MIGHTY THOR #12 is indeed a tale to astonish! Read Full Review

    You will never look at Mjlnir the same way again. Jason Aaron has made the hammer more interesting than ever with a wildly epic and cosmic backstory. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be surprising and entertaining - but I do miss the real Thor, and it's frustrating that we still don't know what caused him to be "unworthy." Perhaps his promised new series will clue us in. Read Full Review

    It is towards the end of the issue where the story seems to contradict what we thought we knew, but it could also be that Jason Aaron hasn't finished telling this story and may be waiting for future stories to continue this origin. Either way, this is still a great comic, but it's something you may have mixed feelings about. I know I do. If you think you know what Mjolnir is, you need to think again and read this issue to find out more! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 20, 2016

    Aaron's history and forging is appropriately epic, with plenty of God battles, thunder strikes and space sharks. Beyond the initial entertainment, it also offers a unique look at the hammer's temperament and relationship with its wielder, something Aaron clearly sets up to be further explored with the upcoming Unworthy Thor #1.

    Comics: The Gathering - Deviator77 Oct 19, 2016

    Aaron has turned in some excellent stories. This is not one of them. He took a wide turn with his writing and slid right into a ditch. Full speed. What's worse, this diminishes the Asgardian mythos we've come to understand in the Marvel Universe. Shaking up how things work in an established comic book universe can reinvigorate a series, but not if the established lore is replaced with a poorly thought out, poorly executed, contradictory catastrophe of a backstory.
