The universe is dying, and All-Father Thor is its only hope. But to save all life, the greatest god in history must defeat the one person who has always managed to escape his wrath - and that was before he got his hands on the weapon that almost killed three generations of Thor and stripped the God of Thunder of his legendary hammer. Loki, God of Lies, wielder of All-Black the Necrosword, finally faces his brother at the end of all time!

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 23, 2019

    King Thor #2 turned out to be a roller coaster of emotions. We all jumped into this for one last big drawn-out battle, and so far we have walked away with so much more. The return of Gorr was amazingly executed, the dialogue was exciting, and the interactions between Thor and Loki was heartbreaking. This is how you make sure readers who have stuck through with this since the start get what they invested in all these years. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Oct 29, 2019

    In the end, if you've been reading Aaron's run on Thor, you'll want to pick up this book, as it is the wrap up of his massive tale. The last of his storylines are being tied up here, even some that you thought were already concluded. If you haven't been reading Aaron's run, however, you might feel a little lost with this book. As mentioned above, it leans heavily on what Aaron established years ago, and it does so unapologetically. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though. It just means you should go back and start at the beginning of Aaron's unparalleled run and enjoy every bit of it. This is a legendary comic book story coming to an end, and it should not be missed for any reason. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 23, 2019

    All in all this book feels incredibly important even though it takes place in the far future and there isn't a single Marvel hero outside Thor to be seen. That's saying something! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Oct 27, 2019

    The book is not a new concept and doesn't tell a new story. I think Thor fans will enjoy this book but for a new reader; I would point them somewhere else. Read Full Review
