It's a shining, golden, new age for the Thunder God and Matt Fraction and Olivier Coipel are back to lead the charge! Thor and Sif dive deep into the heart of the fractured World Tree to reclaim an artifact from beyond time and space, an artifact that attracts the attention of the Silver Surfer. And when a herald such as he arrives on Earth, the arrival of his master is certain to follow. Prepare for the return of the World Eater...prepare for the return of Galactus! Fans can't miss an all new behind the scenes look at the highly anticipated major motion picture with a sneak peek at some of the art!

    As much as I'd love for Asgard to get a breather from all the tragedy, I'm really looking forward to seeing Galactus show up on its doorstep. This was a very satisfying start to what's surely going to be a really good series. Read Full Review

    Hopefully next issue Thor will actually get to take center stage in his own comic. Read Full Review

    I really have no complaints here at all. There was also a back story with the people of Broxton, Oklahoma trying to rationalize their faith in the face of the "gods" who were basically living next door to them. While I enjoyed it, there really wasn't any reason for me to put it in the review, since it didn't really seem to lead to anything. The Thor stuff was good, I'm REALLY enjoying prepubescent Loki, and the impending battle between Thor and the Surfer over the Seed should be REALLY good. I'll definitely be adding this one to my pull list. Read Full Review

    In all, Mighty Thor #1 isnt the traditional reboot per se, as Fraction and Coipel merely re-trigger the epic feel youd expect from both creators. Even though it takes a few steps back from continuity, Thor should remain a mainstay in your punch-list for a more than generous duration. Read Full Review

    The allusion to an imminent showdown with Galactus and the Silver Surfer definitely whet my appetite for next month's issue, though. I'm looking forward to this story picking up. Read Full Review

    Thankfully Coipel and Mark Morales create massive, colorful splashes that are definitely worth checking out. The way Morales fills the pages with tones that allude to impending doom from Galactus (reds, purples, blues etc.) is certainly something to behold. However, the writing on this issue leaves a lot to be desired. Read Full Review

    Pretty good start to hopefully a great story arc. I love how Fraction treats Thor and Sif as equals and I can never get enough of Loki, even when he’s a kid. I’m really looking forward to when Galactus arrives and the art by Coipel is extraordinary
