THE LAST DAYS OF MIDGARD Aftermath • Thor's battle against ROXXON has colossal ramifications for all of Asgard. And also for... Jane Foster? • While in the far future, what dark fate has befallen Galactus at the hands of the King Thor?
THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #24 is the perfect way to wrap up The Last Days of Midgard. The story has been a ride that's full of non-stop excitement, and this epilogue is an insightful way to see what all of that action meant for everyone involved. It's far too often that stories dish out colossal damage and there's no real ramifications. This isn't the case in THOR: GOD OF THUNDER -- not at all. In addition to being a ridiculously well-written conclusion to one story, this issue is also loaded with attention-grabbing teasers. And then there's Agustin Alessio's artwork. To call it "impressive" really would be an understatement. I never was a huge fan of Thor, but Jason Aaron's run is brilliant and can't be missed. Read Full Review
The writing is truly engaging and I have never read Thor written so well. But all of this and my interest in the book is even more so because of the way it looks. The writing and the art in this book goes hand in hand, the art is so detailed and realistic and really fits in well in this issue due to the lack of action. it really allows us to take a look at the characters and feel the emotions they are going through both in the humour and in the sadness.

Thor: God of Thunder remains a remarkable comic. Jason Aaron has tapped into the magic and majesty that makes Thor such a compelling character, and I'm happy to say that I'm still hooked. Read Full Review
For all intents and purposes this is the finale for the Thor:God of Thunder series.
Original Sin has a wrap-up in issue #25, but this book tells the final piece of the story of Asgardia on Earth and it is a fitting finale.
Very rarely do books show the repercussions of the hero's actions and quite literally I do not recall a time when the affected characters of the devastation got to directly speak to the heroes regarding their newly created plight.
The ending is fitting and it shows a humanity to Thor that is often overshadowed by his bravado and arrogance. His speaking with the child was a great moment, as well as his interaction with Jane Foster, who seems to pop in the most random times as a plot point.
The art by Alessio is beautiful as well and compliments Ribic's tone for the book but fleshes out the visuals and gives a distinctive feeling to the whole issue.
While not the final issue in the series, this is a fitting tribute to the past 23 issues.
I found this one hard to rate. I got bogged down a few times in the heavy dialogue, especially the extended conversation between Thor and Freyja. I feel like the gist of it could have been distilled down into a single page. Some interesting things occurred, with Asgard departing Midgard and Jane leaving with it. And Thor leaving his castle behind for the residents of Broxton was a touching moment. Overall though, the story seemed a bit bland and long winded. The art was SO pretty to look at, and that bumped up my enjoyment quite a bit. A lot of nice detail and Alessio also does his own colors, which rival those of Svorcina. Alessio was a great choice to fill-in here, and I hope to see more of his work in the future.
