    I believe Thor comics are some of the most difficult to pencil due to the outlandish characters, but Larraz does a great job of keeping the issue credible considering all that he has to involve. The Asgardians are given their just due, and characters like the Surfer and the Congress of the Worlds leap off the page. Read Full Review

    Pepe Larraz steps in as the artist, and his style is fitting for the story that's being told. His characters are solidly drawn and there is a fantasy element that belongs in this series. While Olivier Coipel's art in the first arc was spectacular, Larraz and Pasqual Ferry's work in this arc has fit in so well. It's almost as if their art styles increase the more higher concept of the idea of what happens to gods when they are forgotten and become lost over time. The bright colors of Frank D'Armata puts the finishing touches on a gorgeous look that's as much fun to look at as it has been to read. Read Full Review

    MIGHTY THOR is quickly becoming one of my favourite books due to its contained storylines and its effective use of existing characters while introducing good new ones. If there's one thing I can appreciate, it's strong dialog, narrative and progression, and MIGHTY THOR has it in spades. Read Full Review

    Pepe Larraz has an excellent style that lends itself to the other-worldly characters and settings populating this book. There's a Nordic ship flying through space toward a hungry-looking space alien with a mouth the size of a football stadium, and Larraz sells that obscure image as well as he does the grounded barroom brawl between Tanarus and Heimdall. His superb sense of scale, gravitas, and pure imagination make the transitions from surreal to slightly-less-surreal feel fluid and natural. Read Full Review

    On the surface, it seems like Fraction is rushing through "The Mighty Tanarus" and, while there are areas he could explore further, the quicker pace makes for a more entertaining read. So many stories take a long time to play out and, since this one has a somewhat predictable end point, getting to the point sooner rather than later seems wise. Fraction has really found his groove on this title. Read Full Review

    Just ignore this slow and repetitive story arc, but stay tuned to hop-in as soon as Thor comes back to work. Read Full Review

    Meh. For whatever reason, I just never got into this comic. It's probably due to the fact that we ALL know that Thor will defeat the Demogorge and confront, and defeat, Tanarus/Ulik. Sure, there's some suspense in whether or not Thor returns in time to save the All-Mother from Tanarus's betrayal, but I'm not really invested enough in the All-Mother to really care if the trolls kill her or not. Maybe if she was more established I'd care more, but as it is, I'm just waiting for Thor to come back and beat up Tanarus, and really nothing more. Read Full Review
