    The Mighty Thor is still in the top 3 of Marvel greatest achievements in the past few years. This issue was a visually arresting showcase that boasts all the best aspects of this series. Read Full Review

    Lots of political maneuvering, a way-beyond-crazy Odin and one hell of a cliffhanger... This is good stuff. Read Full Review

    "The Mighty Thor" provides an excellent read this time out as a lot of plots are beginning to come to a head. Freyja is on trial and has a great confrontation with her husband. Thor can't save the light elves from the darkness. Thor loses her patience with things and starts a major development at the book's conclusion. When you add excellent artwork to the mix you have a very good comic book. If you aren't reading this title then you are missing out. I definitely recommend picking this up. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Feb 20, 2016

    The character is a lot of fun, fighting for her life in her civilian identity, and constantly under fire as "Thor," always determined and ready to face danger head-on. The art by Russell Dauterman is also a lot of fun - a trifle busy in spots, but loaded with energy and life. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Feb 22, 2016

    I'd actually rate this higher, but the high price tag and the poor quality of material Marvel insists on using is distracting and detrimental to the story itself. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 18, 2016

    The Mighty Thor remains one of Marvel's top new reads, again bolstered by the stellar creative team of Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman. Aaron's top notch development is further heightened by Dauterman's equally effective visuals, the two combining for a character driven read that sets up even bigger things to come. Read Full Review

    The Mighty Thor #4 was yet another sensational installment for the All-New All-Different Marvel series, with the creative team building upon Jane Foster's story fabulously. They'd also give some gripping development elsewhere, showing that despite its titular character, this comic is very much about community. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 17, 2016

    The Mighty Thor continues to quietly be one of the better superhero books on the stands. Aaron seems to be directly addressing any opposition that people had to putting Jane Foster under the helmet within his narrative while also telling a good story. He's blessed with the opportunity to continue working with Russell Dauterman. They are proving to be one of the strongest creative teams in the post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe, and that's no small feat. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Feb 18, 2016

    This War of the Realms arc has a nicely epic feel, and with the two-pronged conflict of Malekith invasions and Odin's despotism, feels packed to the rafters with interesting elements that make things feel like they're spiralling out of control. With a great cliffhanger, too. Jason Aaron and Russel Dauterman continue to prove that the adventures of this Thor are just as exciting and funas any that came before. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 22, 2016

    The last page is prelude to an epic throw down. Thor's last line of dialogue is surprisingly irreverent and even juvenile, but it also preserves the feeling of Thor as a character of stalwart, clear-cut morality and muscle. By giving this Thor a line that could have been uttered by her predecessor, Aaron makes the point that they're not so different in character, spirit and approach, belying Odin's insistence that Jane Foster is a "False Thor."
