    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 13, 2013

    All three of the Thors from the different time periods are coming together, and that apparently leads to some of the best dialogue in the series so far! Thor and Old Thor make for one of the best buddy teams in recent memory, though the older one is a little obsessed with beards. Still, this is an awesome, hilarious and truly epic comic book.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 11, 2013

    This is another superb issue by Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic and Ive Svorcina, who manages to craft a tale of high mythology, adventure and grandeur in a tale that mix time travel, divinity and heroism in a small package. This is clearly one of the best, if not the best of the first wave of Marvel Now! I strongly urge everyone to read it. Read Full Review

    This is a comic book filled with all sorts of awesome: the casks of alcohol in the All-Father's secretliquorcache, old Thor chirping young Thor for not having a beard, the ridiculous and pitiful Shadrak, the epic battle sirens. This is damn fine comics, kids. Damn fine. Oh, and grow a beard. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Apr 11, 2013

    A commendable blend of humor, action, and an engaging storyline that is moving along at a respectable pace. The characters are well-written and the art is top-notch as well. If you haven't bought this issue yet, consider this your green light. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 11, 2013

    In terms of Ribic's art, the page layouts and general sense of design are extremely impressive, but the finer details are sometimes lacking. Ribic delivers a very bold take on this story, with the medieval Icelandic setting nicely juxtaposed with the fantastical technology and imagery of future Asgard. Unfortunately, the intentionally sketchy approach to the art is becoming too pronounced, with certain elements like Gorr's shadow creatures looking crudely sketched into the frame. The book may be reaching a stage where Ribic would be better served working with another artist who can provide finishes for his layouts. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Apr 12, 2013

    Basically, if you have been reading “Thor: God of Thunder” so far, I have no idea why you'd stop now; and if you haven't, well, every issue is basically a great jumping-on issue, because they all circle the same circumstances. Only it's getting to be a bit of a tighter spiral these days, and it would be a damn shame to miss out on any of the grim spectacle going on here. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Apr 10, 2013

    The ending is interesting and it really leaves readers with a crazy cliff-hanger. There were definitely some points in the story that were really great, and others that were something to be desired, but overall this is a solid issue. I was glad we moved away from Gorr's back story and are finally seeing the three versions of Thor interact with one another to serve a common goal -- this is something I was hoping to see happen and so far it has been neat seeing the character(s) work together.There were certainly points in the dialogue that were great (Thor's conversations with himself) but other moments that were just not good at all (the start of the issue). Overall, the art was lovely and really complimented the story in this issue incredibly well. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 11, 2013

    Even though the titular "Godbomb" isn't leaving me shaking in my boots, thanks to the lead character(s), the most metal series of Marvel NOW! is finally starting to live up to its premise. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Apr 18, 2013

    This latest issue of Thor: God of Thunder has Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic bringing two of the book's three timelines together as modern Thor meets the aging, heavy-crowned Thor of the future, a team-up that involves the pair bringing huge casks of legendary ale onto a flying boat before zooming into space, and something called "Omnipotence City, Nexus of All Gods."

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Apr 11, 2013

    After the once and future Thor gear up and ready for battle, we learn a shocking truth of a minor character from the last few months. This issue may have featured comedic elements that didn't work for me, but this is still a series that may as well be considered required comics reading. THOR: GOD OF THUNDER features gorgeous and expansive art, while also telling an interesting story about generation gaps and religious values. Its at its peak when it plays it straight, but there's plenty of joy to be had in this more lighthearted entry. Even if this issue didn't hit me as much as the others, I'm still with this series for the long haul, and you should be, too. Read Full Review

    Although this particular issue did not have as much action in store as other issues, it succeeded in setting up what I believe will be an epic story arc. I've thoroughly enjoyed this title and have become a huge Thor fan throughout. Gorr is a worthy villain and I hope to see the darkest of him by the end of the arc. With two Thors for the price of one and a villain I love to hate, this issue has got me pumped for #8.
