    Now if they can increase the action and the speed up the delivery of issues, Thro will be in good hands, although Im not a fan of Billy Tans work. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Nov 30, 2009

    This has been Staczynski's finest work in a lot of ways. He not only literally resurrected a cast of characters that the reading public had previously given up on, but he did so with extreme creativity and a plot that revealed itself to be multi-layered and exciting at the same time. His ending comes as bittersweet here because it delivers the goods to the extent that the reader will have to imagine where he would have gone with the story next, were he to be staying on the title. Marko Djurdjevic does a great job (as he has throughout his work on the series) and both men should be proud. As solid of a start that this arc has had, they bring it all together nicely while still setting up the next chapter for new creators.I'm giving this issue a strong B+ and not a higher grade only because of the fact that half of the book consists of Straczynski and Djurdjevic's actual story and the rest is padded with a preview of Thor #604 and early reprints of Journey Into Mystery.

    It's a strong issue of Thor, but it's not the finale it claims itself to be. Read Full Review

    On the bright side, we need only wait one week to see how well Gillen will carry the torch. Judging solely by the preview, I have high hopes for the series going forward. Read Full Review

    I won't comment on the preview to next week's issue of "Thor," leaving that to whoever reviews it, but Kieron Gillen and Billy Tan have their work cut out for them, as Straczynski leaves the book he relaunched in the top ten and does so with class in an issue that acts as a reminder of the quality of his run.

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Nov 24, 2009

    As Straczynski's swansong for Thor (and, for the moment, Marvel Comics), this is a disappointment, but as a highly-priced "special" issue it borders on insulting. It's a great shame that JMS's Asgardian epic had to end like this. Let's just hope that Siege is worth such upheaval. Read Full Review
