    At least Fraction is writing to his full potential. This is one fantastic comic and any self-respecting Thor fan should throw it in their weekly pile. Perhaps it's too early to be thinking about the future of Thor after J. Michael Straczynski leaves. Even so, I now know who I want to replace him. Read Full Review

    Before I finish this review, I have to comment on the art, which I rarely do, as Zircher did an incredible job here. I'd rank this up with Coipel in terms of detail and this book looks simply amazing. I hope he's on board for the two or three other one shots scheduled from Fraction. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Arthur Cooke Apr 30, 2008

    The artwork is spectacular and fits the story well. The frost giants are very cool looking and the Asgardian setting looks suitably ancient. So if you insist on an old style Thor comic, you might be disappointed. But if you'd like to read a more “blood and guts” Thor, then this book is definitely for you. It won me over and I'm looking forward to the next chapter, Thor: Reign of Blood in June. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Apr 29, 2008

    It's taken me a while to come round to J. Michael Straczynski's core Thor title, as despite some great art and some moments of great storytelling, it feels as though there have been sections that have been a chore to wade through before we can get to the good stuff. Ages of Thunder, however, couldn't be more different: the writing is direct, simple, straightforward and uncompromising, the artwork is excellent, and the strong mythical quality that Fraction brings to his storytelling makes the book instantly attractive. This is definitely worth picking up, both for Thor fans and newcomers to the character alike. Read Full Review
