    Comicosity - Aaron Long Dec 10, 2016

    The Unworthy Thor #2 is a fantastic second chapter in what is proving to be a brilliant mini-series thus far. The creative team brings the thunder, the misery and the pain of the unworthy Odinson in a way that has my full attention. I cant wait for issue #3. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Dec 12, 2016

    The second issue of The Unworthy Thor is a showcase of what great writing and an invested creative team can do. This issue cemented this series as a top title on anyones pull list for sure. Everybody loves a good underdog story, and one featuring the former God of Thunder is an unlikely one, but the question that remains is how much more punishment is Odinson going to endure before his luck turns around?

    The Unworthy Thor is one of the best books on the market right now. The Odinson is at his lowest point searching for redemption and I can't wait to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jan 3, 2017

    The storyline is more complex than it first appears, so when you find out why The Collector is stealing Asgard it's shocking – though it allows us to really learn about Thor and why he's worthy. Even though he's stripped of everything that we associate with him, his honour and values remain. Read Full Review

    It's stories like this one that remind you the Marvel movies have way more ideas to mine for the films. Aaron and Coipel continue to write a fantastic Thor epic that accomplishes everything you'd want in a cosmic story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 8, 2016

    Between the terrific bond between the two hammer-wielders and the frightening depiction of the Collector, Aaron reminds readers once again why he ranks among the all-time great Thor writers. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Dec 8, 2016

    Though the Odinson hasn’t been on the scene that much as of late, Unworthy Thor #2 puts him back in the spotlight in large scale and unexpected way. Re-adapting to his voice with ease, Jason Aaron swings for the fences in a big way, both in terms of plot and character and through he’s only two issues into this latest story, he’s already displaying a high batting average even after all the time detailing Jane Foster’s adventures. Along with the pencils ready made for a heavy metal album cover from Olivier Coipel and rich colors by Matthew Wilson Unworthy Thor #2 proves that age old adage that the first time is luck, but the second time is skill.

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Dec 8, 2016

    Aaron is off to a great start with what could well be a fantastic redemption story. The twist villain at the end promises to up the ante throughout the series and the artists are certainly giving it the high standard it deserves. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 7, 2016

    Unworthy Thor #2 made the stakes real for Odinson taking back this hammer that really should at a time like this be wielded by someone worthy. If Odinson seemed challenged before, this creative team cranked the dial in a way that makes you want to see how far he will go for something that is now within his reach. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 10, 2016

    Aaron is building a compelling action mystery here, everything we could want for a story about the Odinson kicking around the cosmos. This may just be a spin-off mini-series, but it's nearly as damn good so far as the regular Mighty Thorcomic. Read Full Review
