RAGNAROK PART 5 What makes a god? Is it birthright, is it happenstance, or is it in the making? Thor finds out the hard way as he seeks answers on how to face the coming end of his people. Thor struggles with the knowledge of the eternal.
Andrea Divito turns in a solid enough issue, as the big impact visuals of the issue are impressively rendered, from the scene where Mangog advances on Thor, to the scene where Thor shatters Loki's magic shield. I also enjoyed the scene where Thor beheads Loki, as the art does a nice job of selling the idea that this is the result of a magic spell rather than a physical attack. The art also does some nice work establishing the more surreal aspects of the story from the visions that Thor encounters when he's hanging, to the scene where he pays a visit to the old gods and lets them know that he's aware of the game he's being called on to play. I also have to say it's great to get a cover image that actually reflects the story one gets inside, as this book has been particularly bad about offering up generic cover shots that bear little to no resemblance to the story inside.
