    This is yet another issue that'll make you exclaim "another!" once you finish it. Even though Aaron's hitting us with a serious overall message, he's doing it without being blatantly preachy and still manages to include a ridiculous amount of fun. THOR: GOD OF THUNDER continues to be worthy of a God. This issue is exceptionally well-written, loaded with excitement and packed with stunning artwork. Seriously, this is guaranteed to turn you into a Thor fan. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron has clearly been having a blast writing the Asgardian Avenger, and from the looks of #20, we are in for nothing but great Thor comics from here on out. Read Full Review

    Thor is a fantastic read. It's been the steadiest reads all along and it seems to only be getting better. This issue brings together two, seemingly, unrelated plots. It looks to be a classic arc in the making. I wonder what Jack Kirby would say if he read this one. Read Full Review

    Esad Ribic art is amazing. The dirty, barren wasteland of King Thor's Earth is stunning, especially in contrast to the vivid world of All-New Thor NOW (sorry). Some of the facial expressions are little odd looking, especially when somebody is yelling, but that's small complaint. Plus, Ribic draws the most menacing looking Galactus ever. There are clouds of dirty and dust obscuring everything, but Galactus' size and weight always bleeds through. It's epic stuff. Thor: God of Thunder is consistently great. Read Full Review

    I'm still surprised they've made no effort to bring this title in line with the incredibly successful movies version. You know, the one with the Thor who acts like a hero. Read Full Review

    Old Thor vs. Galactus is a hoot. It's as fun as you think it's going to be, and it's just getting started. Read Full Review

    The art by Esad Ribic and Ive Svorcina, plus the lettering of Joe Sabino, bring the whole story together. The rich colors and the amazing detail bring everything from Thor showing Roz the inside of a thunderstorm to the towering, shadowed visage of Old Galactus to haunting life. While this issue is a lead into the throwdown of the universe that is to come, it moves the story along in magnificent fashion. Read Full Review

    This continues to be one of the best superhero comics being currently published. I like the environmental theme to this arc, especially as it pertains to the future King Thor vs. Galactus. Svorcina continues to be the unsung hero. I think her colors elevate the art to a degree seldom achieved in other titles. I know she's also coloring Starlight, so I look forward to seeing what she does there.
