    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jan 17, 2018

    I couldn’t be more excited for the next issue of the Mighty Thor. The team behind this title has been consistently on top of their game this whole time, and I’m one hundred percent positive that it will go down as one of the character’s greatest runs. I honestly loved every single panel. Once again, this kind of quality is entirely deserving of your time and money. Go buy it, and wait anxiously for the next issue like me. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Tom Finn Jan 20, 2018

    It looks like the end of the line for Lady Jane, though. She has sacrificed all, but the smallest of chances of being cured. Should she transform again she WILL die. Jason Aarons writing has been nothing short of epic for this whole series. Seeing Mangog wreck Asgard is exciting and sad at the same time, because we all know what comes next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jan 18, 2018

    Issue #703 is Aaron and Dauterman doing what they both do best. It's almost as if Aaron's script is the hammer and Dauterman is the only one worthy enough to pick it up and create wonders with it. This is the kind of genius work Black Album era Jay-Z would warn us we're going to miss when it's gone. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 17, 2018

    The Mighty Thor continues to make a strong case for it being not just Marvel's best series, but the best ongoing series from any publisher right now. The book remains remarkably consistent as Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman dig deeper into "the Death of the Mighty Thor." While Marvel is seemingly telegraphing the outcome of this story, that does nothing to diminish its impact as Jane Foster gears up for his last and greatest battle. Read Full Review

    This is an emotional milestone for the title, characters, and creative team. No other "Big 2" comic book is this effective on such a grand scale. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jan 18, 2018

    The story by Jason Aaron is rocketing toward a fierce conclusion, and the fierce and sometimes surreal art by Russell Dauterman (with color by Matthew Wilson) is impressive. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Jan 18, 2018

    The build up to the finale for The Mighty Thor is showing a lot of promise, Jane's characterisation and how caught she feels between her two lives is very compelling. While I don't want to see the Mighty Thor go, this run of comics has been successful and in both Marvel and DC characters do happen to have a habit of coming back" like the one who gets a cameo on the final page!

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 17, 2018

    We have seen some madness in throughout the War of The Ten Realms, but The Mighty Thor #703 proved that things could always be worse. Asgardia thought they could turn a blind eye to the chaos around them, and that decision right there is what brought this nightmare to their doorstep. Any reader will want to see what comes next, but that will not come without fear of what else and who else can be lost to the Mangog. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Jan 19, 2018

    Ok, so Jane's cancer has ALWAYS been the main underlying fact of this series. It's mentioned in every issue and imbedded in our brains with good reason. But to now see the seriousness of it, the effects it has finally had on Jane is hard. Really hard, and not just for the characters but for the reader. The severity of the situation has finally been addressed and it couldn't have come at a worse time. You can see Jane's pain in the amazing artwork as she makes the decision wither to save the Realms or die. Especially since Jane has always been so Gun-Ho about being Thor and saving other's lives over her own. Also, don't worry about the mysterious stranger at the end of the comic. It's a set up for the return of one of Marvel's biggest character's and he's just popping in for a quick cameo. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Jan 18, 2018

    Aaron's dialogue is at times overwrought, even for a scenario as melodramatic and dangerous as the one facing our heroes in The Mighty Thor #703, but artist Russell Dauterman and colorist Matthew Wilson deliver some truly incredible Asgardian action sequences. Read Full Review
