    Olivier Coipel is one of my favourite artists. To think that people used to complain about his work when he was working on Legion of Super Heroes for DC Comics. Granted most of his characters look alike, he has the ability to capture mundane and non heroic characters unlike anyone else. His use of facial expressions has also improved tremendously since he last worked on Thor as its regular artist. Read Full Review

    Don't get me wrong, The Mighty Thor #4 is still absolutely worth purchasing. It's just that it's very much calm-before-the-storm-type storytelling. Next month's installment seems to be when things really hit the fan, so to speak. Read Full Review

    It may not be an Eisner-contender, but it's still a hell of a good time. Read Full Review

    This is the fourth installment of the story of the "Galactus Seed" and it really feels like it's going somewhere now. Thor is ready to put the hurt on the Silver Surfer -- on Mars no less! I can certainly understand if people are bemoaning the pace of this story, but there is no denying the sheer quantity of plots and subplots, conflicts internal and external, and surprises that Fraction and company are jamming into this book. It seems as though the next issue might be the one where the other shoe drops. When that shoe hits, it's going to make quite a ruckus and it's going to provide quite an enjoyable story.

    That said, you will want to be a fan and, therefore, want to stick around to see what happens next because this issue definitely threw some wrenches into the mix with some of the extraordinarily high concept scenes with Odin and Galan. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 2, 2011

    The Surfer's scenes with Thor work much better, but the nagging issue of the character's loss of voice really bothered me (and made it hard for me to initially try and figure out when this story is actually taking place). Still, issue #4 has plenty of action including Thor's attempt to kill Galactus, kamikaze style. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Galactus Seed is a great opening arc for the Fraction-Coipel dream team and I can’t wait to see how it ends. Sid is treated as Thor’s equal while Loki is just as clever and mischievous as ever
