    Genuine pathos, gorgeous art and super powered violence on par with an extinction level event? If there were talent show judges reading this book, they'd have sent all the competition home for the night. Read Full Review

    Obviously, I am in love with this issue. I hate sounding like a shill, but it really is that good. It is a colossal battle of the kind we rarely get in many modern comics. Its a fantastic read, even if youre not particularly invested in the current going-ons of Thor. Read Full Review

    With some great art by James Harren and great narration written by Jason Aaron, The Mighty Thor #701 is a great start to a new arc featuring one of the best fights in this current run of Thor with the return of a class and intimidating villain, and leaves me excited for what comes next.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 15, 2017

    The Mighty Thor continues to hum along as one of Marvel's best and most consistent ongoing comics. That consistency doesn't vanish even as the series welcomes a guest art team for this issue. James Harren perfectly captures the heavy metal spirit of Jason Aaron's writing. Meanwhile the arrival of Mangog promises to be another crucial development in a saga that's managed to include nearly every major Thor villain so far. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Eric Nierstedt Nov 17, 2017

    MIGHTY THOR #701 pits War Thor against the Mangog. It's an epic fight that takes up the whole issue. Unfortunately, there's not much else going in this story. James Harren and Dave Stewart add solid art, but this feels like buildup instead of an individual story. Read Full Review

    While some readers may be turned off to focus so heavily on a side character rather than Jane Foster herself, Aaron and Harren acquit themselves marvelously with their execution. Read Full Review

    Mangog arrives like a billion tidal waves with an issue that hits as hard as his blows. This is a great start for the dangers to come! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Nov 20, 2017

    "The Mighty Thor" #701 mixes up the formula with big action that doesn't quite capitalize on the series' consistent level of sustained greatness. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Nov 17, 2017

    The back story of Mangog is enough to make you cringe but to see him completely beat the living thunder out of War Thor was impressive. The art is simple but you can still feel the pain of every punch both fighters give. You always think that a new villain is never powerful enough to take out your favorite superhero out but Mangog is pretty fierce. I'm kind of nervous to see how our favorite Lady Thor handles him when the two finally meet! Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 17, 2017

    It's tough to follow the gigantic masterpiece that was The Mighty Thor #700, but this certainly keeps the ball rolling. This issue is all about setting the stage for Jane's big finale. Jason Aaron keeps adding to his solidified status as one of the all-time great Thor scribes. Read Full Review
