    Hardly seems like the type of brisk, high concept, modern take on classic Marvel storytelling many have come to expect from the Astonishing line, no? Luckily, Choi's art at least comes close to livening the story up in some spots, particularly when he gets to draw big cinematic shots of Thor in flight or Ego's grand, double-page spread of an entrance. But, as I hinted at above, even Choi's art isn't really enough to save this dull, uneventful issue, nor is it enough to convince me to come back for a second installment. Read Full Review

    "Astonishing Thor" #1 is astonishingly bad. There's barely a story, groan-inducing dialogue, stiff art, faux-painted colors, and it makes for an unimpressive start. While not tying directly into current continuity, this comic does rely on Marvel continuity heavily and is meant to be the Thor of the Marvel universe, but doesn't sound or even act like him. Of the current crop of Thor titles, this is, by far, the worst. Read Full Review
