    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 5, 2022

    Its really, really difficult to find the right timing and pacing for a series that also has to work right alongside so many others in the Thor/Avengers family of titles. Grnbekk really should have had more time. Each issue in the five-part series could have easily expanded into two or three more without feeling overindulgent. Given the limitations of a five-part series, Grnbekk and company have done a pretty good job with what theyve got, but its nowhere near as satisfying as it should be to see it all come to a close.

    Dowling delivers some impressive and thrilling art in the issue. I would have loved to see more of the battle between Ares and Thor, but the visuals are great.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Lillian Hochwender Oct 6, 2022

    Jane Foster & The Mighty Thor #5 is an action-packed and overcrowded ending that under-delivers on exposition but is nonetheless poignant. While this series may not nail the landing, it's still one of the best Thor comics in years. Read Full Review

    Given that Thor and the Hulk destroy an entire planet in one of their fights this isnt really that big of a finale but it is an ending and thats enough for this story. Read Full Review

    This five-issue series was about four-and-a-half issues too long. Read Full Review

    This story was so convoluted that was hard to follow. Thor is in a dreamworld, but they didn't have to do much besides walk through a portal to get back to the real world. There were no issues to get over, no story beats. What was the point? Then Ares openly says that if people die in the battle then he will get stronger. This was the perfect opportunity for Thor to say fine, then we won't kill anyone. Or then I challenge you, Ares. Instead, they charge in and start killing people. Only the magic arrow allows Thor to get in a shot. Then it's Jane who has to say that they should show mercy. Pretty disappointing writing.
