    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Sep 26, 2017

    Marvel Legacy #1 has been definitively set up as a must read for the future of Marvel, but for my money, I would say that The Mighty Thor #700 might be just as important a book to read, too. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 22, 2017

    Jason Aaron is a top talent in the industry, a top talent for Marvel, and an all-time great for Thor writers. If you aren't reading Mighty Thor right now, you're severely depriving yourself. A run like this doesn't happen very often anymore, and a story this epic is why many of us read comics in the first place, it's a major achievement. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 18, 2017

    Jason Aaron's Thor saga may be five-years-deep at this point, but it's showing no signs of slowing down or running out of gas. This issue serves as both a celebration of Thor's heroic legacy and a look forward into the dark days lying ahead for the hammer-wielding heroes of the Marvel U. With an all-star cast of artists on board, this oversized issue easily ranks among the best of Aaron's long run. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 21, 2017

    This overside, overstuffed anniversary issue is a fantastic read, with gorgeous art, great stories and a real connection to the already ongoing tale. This is exactly what you should want from such an issue (though I could have used more Beta Ray Bill). Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 22, 2017

    Jason Aaron puts on quite the show for this celebration of Mighty Thor, and it has me interested in the future exploits of Thor, whosever it may be. The promised returns look cool, and the potential changes in the future for Thor should be awesome. The price is steep, but Id say its worth it. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Oct 19, 2017

    It may not have the loud explosions, coupled with heavy metal music, but The Mighty Thor #700 is plenty appealing in all the right ways. Worthiness may still be a hopelessly esoteric concept that fans will be arguing over on message boards for another 700 issues, but this one proves its worth, as only a Thor comic can.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 19, 2017

    Still, that’s the kind of failing I want to see more of in comic books - because Mighty Thor #700 takes a particularly weighty franchise and does a remarkable job at examining and celebrating its long and storied legacy. The effort and enthusiasm behind this book is palpable, and dare I say, even infectious. Fans of Mjolnir should definitely give this book a read, if not to see where Thor is headed as a series, but to see such a uniformly strong collection of talent in the same place. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Joanna Robinson Oct 21, 2017

    With a title that has the word Death in it, you know it cant be good. I know comics are meant to jump around but this was a bouncy house of jumping around. I had to reread it a few times (note, this is a 50-page comic) to figure out what was actually going on and the point of the jumping. Its because there is just SO MUCH going on all over the realms and how it all connects that I finally was ok with it. Not to mention there are different art styles going on with every story. From the playful style of Loki to the dark style of Mighty Thor and She-Hulk going at it. A lot is going on here and while its all good story telling, it gets to be a smidge too much. But some of the stuff in here (stuff that is big time spoilers) is amazing to see and I look forward to seeing if those spoilers come true. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Oct 19, 2017

    The Mighty Thor #700's execution is messy and too scattered to be new reader-friendly for the "Marvel Legacy" lineup and to warrant its $5.99 price tag. Read Full Review

    I love it. I love it. I love it. This is going to be an emotional story arc for Thor and Marvel fans as a whole. Jason Aron is the best Thor writer. If this story needs to be told then I am glad he is at the helm because anyone else could end up spoiling everything. The art is huge in this issue and colors explode off the page. Throg really could be a great mini-story in himself. There was a lot to chew on in issue 700. The Golden Thor Hammer and future Odinson all-father give Jason Aaron a multitude of directions he can take this story arc. My hope is that we find a way of keeping Jane Foster-Thor, but I don't know what Aaron is really working toward. The only knock I have against this issue is pacing and the Mangog. Mangog just doesn't inspire the the fear on the page like Gorr or other villains. We are more being told to be worried about his coming than actually feel worried about his coming. The Fact that Jason Aaron has kept up this War of Realms for this long is a marvel in itself. It seems sometimes like he had to hold off writing to resolve the problems and Jane-Thor hate. The story that Jason Aaron mentions in the future of a corrupted Ego the living planet vs Odinson the All-Father sounds more interesting than a War Thor Mangog splash page. I am interested in the fall out of this arc and I will be on board to the end. Aaron sets us up with multiple Thors and someone needs to die by the end. The question is who and how. The She-Hulk vs Thor fight was impressive and a great nod to the past. The changes in art can be a little off putting for some but they remain in line with the perspective of the Thor we are discussing. Let us all jump in on Mighty Thor #700 because anyone would enjoy this comic.

    A very enjoyable anniversary issue. For once, the extra price and page count was worth it!

    For the milestone 700th issue of Thor we are treated to a celebration of the mythology through an anthology like telling of various Thor stories. What was most impressive for me is how these various tales seem to come together to connect the many tales that Aaron has been introducing through Thor: God of Thunder, The Unworthy Thor, and the two Jane Foster series. There are even connections to classic Thor tales through a Walt Simonson introductory page that fittingly represents Thor Odinson's ideal image of himself, and Throg the frog Thor who carries a fractured piece of Mjolnir. There are two main stories told throughout the book. One featuring the Odinson protecting Karnilla and the Nornkeep. With pencils by Dauterman the sequence looks great especially with Karnilla who has a magnificence similar to her appearance in Baldor the Brave. The second is a homage to the Hulk versus Thor battles with the exception being this is Jennifer and Jane in the roles. There is an obvious love of the history of Thor crafted into new tales that help move forward to the previously hinted path Aaron is following. There is so much connection to Thor's past issues that little moments have a lot of meaning. The hard thing about this issue is the price tag. This is a double sized issue so it will run you $6 which will be a bit much if you are not a huge Thor fan and find joy in those moments. This is worth it for the Thor fans, so give it a scan and see if it is worth the price for you.

    Very cool art, clever how they merged all the different Thors and stories together. Fun! The frog makes it all work though.
