    Barry Kitson returns from an earlier .1 issue to provide the art on this final issue. Again, he knocks it out of the park. Kitson's work with these types of characters is top notch. It's reminiscent of what we saw back in the 80s from Walt Simonson. There's a larger than life quality to the Asgardian men and a beauty to the women that is almost unmatched. If nothing else, readers will love the look of this book even if Kitson's not getting a great deal of opportunity to have Thor in full on battle to slay a beast. Read Full Review

    The status quo for Thor has changed, and yet, it oddly also remains the same. And therein lies the brilliance of this issue. It has certainly laid the framework for a fresh and exciting start forThor: God of Thunder, which I am extremely excited for. Fraction and company deliver a fantastic ode to the Thunder God with the final issue ofThe Mighty Thor, I enjoyed it immensely. Read Full Review

    Barry Kitson helps Fraction close out the series. With Jay Leisten providing finishes to Kitson's breakdowns on some pages, the overall look is less sharp than it might have been. Facial work tends to suffer the most when Kitson isn't handling the panels himself. But the general storytelling is still strong and heavy with emotion. The series ends much as it always existed - with an uneven execution but plenty of high points along the way. Read Full Review

    This issue was basically the trail of Thor.  As such, it was a bit of a recap comic.  I mean it was okay and all, but it wasn't great.  It dragged at times(mainly during the parts I had already read), but it was a pretty good comic to read heading into the new Thor series.  If you need a Thor refresher, this issue is ideal.

    "The Mighty Thor" #22 does provide a verdict on Thor's actions, but doesn't completely button up everything that Thor is about right now. Additionally, it leaves room for reader interpretation, making for an enjoyable "nothing" tale. With the upcoming "Thor: God of Thunder" series set to launch within a month, Fraction clearly leaves things open for incoming writer Jason Aaron to pick and choose. In the meantime, this issue provides a final inventory of how the legendary Asgardians intersect with the real world and how much richer the Marvel Universe is for it. All of the pieces are on the table, waiting to be polished up and used. Read Full Review

    A pretty boring finale to a good yet forgettable Thor run. It honestly wasn’t that bad of a series, it just pails in comparison to the runs that precede and succeed it.
