    This is an outstanding book that is doing a great job of building towards the The War of Realms. The characterization, the action, the pacing, the artwork" it's all here. Aaron is holding a master class on how good comics are written for $3.99 a month. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Dec 17, 2015

    While this new series' first issue was all about reintroducing us to the new Goddess of Thunder, Jane Foster, Jason Aaron quickly starts to stack the deck against her in this second issue with the inclusion of the Enchantress and Loki into the book's violent proceedings. Read Full Review

    The Mighty Thor is a solid book. It's a light read right now but the danger is really mounting against Jane Foster and despite Loki's sinister machinations, the odds might be stacked against him as well. Dauterman really anchors the book but Aaron clearly has a vision for the future of the title. By calling back to so many different pieces of the Thor mythology and combining them in new and interesting way, the creative team is able to keep things fresh without overdoing it the way some of the other "All-New, All-Different" books have tended to.

    This comic is something special. I have loved every issue that Aaron has produced since he picked up Thor, and I hope he sticks around for a long, long time. His stories are epic, his characters are rich, and he's been teamed with some of the best artists imaginable! Read Full Review

    Thor continues to be a white hot character in the hands of Aaron and Dauterman. Issue #2 doesn't carry quite the same weight found in the debut, but it does serve to shine a spotlight on the book's more secondary characters. Add in a deliciously duplicitous turn by Loki and a great set of spreads by Dauterman and you get another entertaining installment. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Adam Sorice Dec 21, 2015

    On the whole, this is a good issue of Thor– Aaron and artist Russell Dautermann continue to build a visually and politically charged world for Jane Foster where the stakes feel real and the characters emotionally complex. Nevertheless, Loki is a special case at a superhero publisher and deserves particular focus when being utilised by any creative team. At a time when Marvel's queer representation is so abysmal, any LGBTQ character with the sheer luck to have been nurtured in the past should be moving forward, not returning to old tricks.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 21, 2015

    The story itself -- which sets up Thor and Loki's involvement in the War of the Elves -- is little more than a minor transition, but that doesn't matter when the book looks this good. With a strong setup for "The Mighty Thor" #3 now in place, Aaron's mostly unmemorable script is forgivable because the book is an artistic powerhouse. If only all superhero comics were this pretty to look at. Read Full Review
