    In addition to his impeccable skills as a writer, Simonson is a wonderful artist. He continues to demonstrate the great sense of line, color and movement that characterized much of his work at Marvel. His use of sound effects as part of the action is unique and adds a great dimension to his storytelling. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Mar 11, 2015

    "Ragnark" #4 reads like the kind of comic Simonson was born to create; it's an excellent example of how Simonson, one of comics' most notable and longest-tenured creators, has still got it going on. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Cap'n Aldous B. Adder Mar 14, 2015

    After a slow start with the first two issues that kind of just got the ball rolling, the pace, complexity of story, action, characters and pretty much everything has gotten kicked into a higher gear once Thor is on his journey and I for one can't wait to see where it goes. Simonson is spot on with his work and shows that time and age matter little when one has the creativity, skill and willingness to use them both. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Mar 11, 2015

    Even with that nagging at me, I loved this book. It's like putting on your favorite pair of viking boots and getting back into this world, created by a storyteller you love. It's not the same as Mighty Thor (which I'm sure I'll bring up in every review, lest someone unfairly lob that accusation at Mssrs. Simonson and Workman), and it's exploring this whole new, post-gods, super-metal world. So throw on some music (I prefer Leviathan by Mastodon, but that's just me), and get into it. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Mar 13, 2015

    This is the first issue I picked up of this series and I will definitely be looking for the others. It tells a great story and offers a different type of visual experience. Simonson shows off his experience in this title, as he offers a story that is even greater than those on offer by another certain God of Thunder. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Mar 11, 2015

    In short, this series is showing a lot of promise. As I said, its early days and the title's taking its time to ramp up the main plot, but its not letting this get in the way of good storytelling as it goes. Read Full Review
