    The Mighty Thor #8 is an awesome comic in a long line of successes from this team. Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman and Matt Wilson are bringing the thunder and I'm underselling this comic by calling it a must-read. This is essential reading if you are a Marvel fan or enjoy superhero comics. It is that damn good. Read Full Review

    A fairly even paced script, some well placed cameos, a satisfying villain and some of the best visuals in the business all come together to keep this book one of the most consistently pieces of entertainment Marvel could dream up. Read Full Review

    This arc, titled “Lords of Midgard” has gotten off to a strong start; enemy against enemy, a spy agency on Jane's case. There is a lot to play for in future issues. If the rest of the story is like this, this could be the most fun Thor story yet. Read Full Review

    Sometimes the most satisfying stories are the ones you don't see coming.  I went into The Mighty Thor #8 expecting more of the high fantasy, War of the Realms confrontation that was executed so brilliantly in the first story arc of this series.  Instead, the creative team has decided to have Jane Foster check in and focus on her troubles on the mundane world of Earth.  This new story arc is off to a strong start thanks to a great balance of set up and character moments.  It also ups the quality of this comic that the art team delivers some glorious visuals and supply the fantastical elements in small doses.  Allowing them to really stand out and pop off the panels.

    This issue of the Mighty Thor is the perfect jumping on point for new readers....... and since this is the first issue of the series that I've read, well that means a lot to me.  Really though, if you've been on the fence about picking this series up, well jump on over already because you're missing out.  We've got action, drama, comedy........ Really, this issue is on the verge of having it all and it doesn't hurt that it's full of excellent art and an intriguing story going forward. Read Full Review

    Those hoping for the series to steer right into the heart of the War of Realms conflict might be disappointed, as this issue is more concerned with touching base with an increasingly sick Jane Foster and exploring new tensions between Dario Agger and his billionaire supervillain peers.

    The Mighty Thor #8 had a great start to a new arc. What came before was a story of necessity that we haven't quite seen the payoff to yet, but what is going on right now is where you would rather be at diving back into the main storyline. Read Full Review

    Aaron and Dauterman's new arc is a fine bit of storytelling that neatly balances its action with its humanity as Jane Foster/Thor faces off against S.H.I.E.L.D., the cabal, Thor's criminal status on Asgard and -- of course -- her cancer. While we have certainly seen Thor up against bad guys and tremendous odds before, we have never seen a Thor who faced such personal challenges and used them to redefine what it means to be the God of Thunder.

    As much as I enjoyed the 2-issue fairy tale, I'm glad to have the regular Mighty Thor story back and on track. Between Aaron's characters and Dauterman's outstanding artwork, this is still a top tier title. Read Full Review

    I haven't been wild about The Mighty Thor since it came back after Secret Wars but the newest issue finally offers something readers haven't seen with this character and world before, which is all I can really ask for. It's a great showcase of what makes The God of Thunder such an exciting, malleable hero who can face off with a wide variety of different villains and situations. Read Full Review
