    The Mighty Thor #3 is a krakathooming good time, and it is a damn good time to be a Thor fan. This issue is a classic Thor vs. Loki romp with the twist of everything new about these characters and the cliffhanger this team delivers to close out the issue is very powerful. The Mighty Thor is in the running for the best superhero book in comics and this issue solidifies that. This creative team is on fire and you can't go wrong if you choose to pick up The Mighty Thor #3. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman delve deep into the trickster god's various incarnations in Mighty Thor #3, and it's refreshing that Jane Foster is way smarter about it than her predecessor. Read Full Review

    Overall, THE MIGHTY THOR has already proven itself to be a good comic, but with the addition of this issue, it makes it a must read just for the amazing art and beautiful scenes that it presents. There is no doubt that there is plenty of depth worth mining under the surface of both Dr. Jane Foster and the ultimate trickster Loki's first but definitely not last conflict. Read Full Review

    The Mighty Thor #3 continues the tale of Jane Foster's time as the God of Thunder, with the creative team wasting no time in reminding me just why this is one of my favourite projects from the House of Ideas. The interaction between Thor and Loki, with the plotting of Malekith and Laufey also made things all the more dramatic, with there being some fun moments along the way. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jan 14, 2016

    It seems like Jason Aaron has had some fun writing and rewriting the stories of Thor in his four-plus years working on the character, but The Mighty Thor #3 is something a bit different, it's Aaron having fun not just with the character, but with the publishing history and future of the character.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 13, 2016

    Overall, while it doesnt necessarily advance the ongoing storyline very much, at least not until the final few pages, this is still an issue that a lot of fans are going to really enjoy (and Im including myself in that statement) simply because were finally getting to see the latest incarnations of these iconic creations go head-to-head. Aaron and Dauterman just flat out get these characters, and hopefully assuming it hasnt happened already – the days of people viewing female Thor as a mere novelty or publicity stunt should be all but behind us. You can count me in for the rest of this series, thats for sure. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron's Thor just gets deeper and deeper into this new story, and every new issue is a lot of fun. And for the first time since he took over, Aaron finally brings us a one-on-one battle between Thor and Loki! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Jan 17, 2016

    As mentioned previously, the cancer set-up and the structure of this comic around a major Asgardian war involving all of Jane Foster Thors villains so far gives the comic the air of an ending in progress, but I really hope thats not the case. TheMighty Thor feels like a visitor from another time and place, a comic grounded in telling long form stories informed by solid pacing, emotional impact, and crafting a unique and engaging mythos for a character thats more than the sum of its parts. Its a comic with a sense of its own history as well as enough presence of mind to forge its own way forward and make something new. Bottom line: its an excellent comic made by people with vision and skill who really cared about making it. Read Full Review
