    You have to hand it to Jason Aaron. The man knows how to swing for the fences. Much like Asgard's would-be invaders, this issue had two prime directives: to wreck shit and leave. With the return of Dauterman to the drawing board, the book completes both of these missions with absolute style. If you're not reading this book by now, you are officially playing yourself.

    With Aaron, Dauterman and Wilson at the helm, there's no chance of The Mighty Thor steering readers wrong. This issue serves as a very promising start for "The Asgard/Shi'ar War," one that keeps the focus on Jane Foster's very immediate struggles even as it opens the gates for plenty of cosmic spectacle and epic action. It's exactly the sort of balance a good Thor story needs. Read Full Review

    The Mighty Thor #15 sets up the new arc in all the right ways with big stakes and defining character moments for multiple characters. I wished there was more Thor in the book, but it had me hook, line, and sinker by the final page. Read Full Review

    The Mighty Thor #15 pulls you into the ‘Asgard/Shi'ar War' effortlessly. This is the best time to be reading Thor if you haven't been following events up to this point. It feels like there may be a different war we are preparing for and you definitely want to see where this goes during such a critical time for the Ten Realms. Read Full Review

    While this issue is perfectly accessible to new readers of The Mighty Thor, why would you want to miss an issue of my favorite Marvel comic currently on the stands? Read Full Review

    So yeah, I have no idea what the heck this is all about. Aaron and Dauterman are already telling a fantastic story about war between the various Thor realms. Why the bloomin' heck is he suddenly bringing the Shi'ar into the mix for an entirely separate war? It's not like anything particularly noteworthy or interesting happens in this issue. There are some minor character moments here and there, but it's basically just the familiar Shi'ar characters and familiar Asgard characters punching each other around a bit. It's all drawn by Russell freakin' Dauterman, so it's all as beautiful and epic as humanly possible. But this first issue does nothing to assure me that this isn't just a random, pointless, highly entertaining diversion from the really good stuff. Read Full Review
