    Both Avengers titles are on slow-burn right now, introducing new characters and variants that are admittedly cool, but somewhat lacking in connective tissue. Read Full Review

    This story is reminiscent of those come to terms movies in how a hero reaches a pit of despair but battles back to be a better version of themselves.  It was a great break to give Thor arguably a more harnessed power without his beloved hammer.  But like any pet with a heart, Thor needs his hammer, and his hammer needs him!

    While Avengers Forever has been more miss than hit, this issue was surprisingly strong. I think it speaks to how well Aaron knows Thor that he finds a way of forging a new story and path for the character. Read Full Review

    All I really need from this series is a bit more of a connection to the ongoing narrative. I just need to care a little more. This series lives and dies on whatever the newest issue decides to be about. It leads to a very uneven run.

    I like it better than the main Avengers series right now.

    Thinking of this comic just in isolation with itself, it was a good read. Bigger picture, I really really want Aaron to move his Avengers story forward just a little faster from the snails pace it's going, but in and of itself, this was a good story. The struggles of this alternate Thor made me feel interested and invested in him, and where the story ended up was an unexpected direction so that was fun.

    Jason Aaron is taking his time to introduce characters but the connection is just not there to the A-team. Aaron Kuder is killing it on art though and he is the only bright spot in this book along with Guru-eFX.
