    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 16, 2014

    THOR: GOD OF THUNDER is a phenomenal series and without question one of the best books currently available. The sheer amount of entertainment value Aaron and Ribic pack into this issue is absolutely ridiculous. The battle between King Thor and Old Galactus is tremendous, and the "battle" Thor faces in the modern era is a hilarious contrast yet still manages to feel completely epic. Throw in a solid cliffhanger and we have yet another issue that simply begs to be purchased. Be good to yourself and read this book. Seriously, it's that amazing. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Apr 16, 2014

    Thor: God of Thunder #21 is a thundering, heavy metal comic with one of the best throwdowns I've seen in a long time. There is only one word for this comic, and it is “epic”. That word gets tossed around a lot with this comic because it fits so well. Aaron and Ribic are on fire and they are one of those teams that are magic when put together. This is a must-read comic by superstar creators and the only place you're going to see Galactus and All-Father Thor get down and dirty in the baddest street fight you've ever seen. That alone is worth the price of the ticket, grab this one now. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    It's surprising that a God of Thunder can fly under the radar like this, but Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic are downright killing it with their latest Thor arc, "The Last Days of Midgard. Read Full Review

    The last few pages brought in a new element that I'm not entirely sold on, but overall Issue #21 is emblematic of what makes this run on Thor so impressive. Jason Aaron has a strong sense of what makes a Thor story work, which even the most skilled writers can't always manage. He's testing how Thor views himself and how he solves his problems, and I'm intrigued to see the answers as "The Last Days of Midgard" continues. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic continue to create great Thor stories. This issue continues future Thor's battle with Galactus. The cool part of that is seeing Thor hold his own against Galactus. Present day Thor is still battling Roxxon, but they've bought Thor's favorite town of Broxton, OK and are now suing Thor. The book reads very well and the art shows Thor's expressions exactly like they should be. Great issue.

    What a lot of fun. I enjoyed the war of put-downs and zingers between Old Thor and Old Galactus. Although I wasn't a big fan of the cover-Thor smashing...something, the interior storytelling is inspired and entertaining. The color art sets a consistent tone for the book and Svorcina is definitely in the top tier of current colorists. The story Aaron is telling is pretty great. I like the comparison between these two battles being waged between Thor and an entity that's out to destroy the Earth. And there are fun fantastical elements throughout, like floating pollution plants and a character being punched through the moon.
