    This is the Thor I grew up with and this series seems to reconnect to his people's larger role where they always belonged. Read Full Review

    This story arc was a good old romp through Asgard, which I think is what Thor needed in the midst of Fear Itself. It ties itself into the events of the crossover without becoming obnoxious, which is fulfilling its intended purpose, I believe. Read Full Review

    While certain elements of the story did get their due, the actual unfolding of the plot somehow lost its way. Quality of paneling is all over the place, significant events occur without explanation, and one of the more grave issues is swept under the rug. Overall, the ending does work, but it was told without the elegance necessary for such elaborate tales. However, stepping back and looking at the story as a whole earns Fraction some serious credit. He told an extraordinary tale that could have easily fallen into cheese territory, but he kept it personal with great character work and made it wondrous with a vivid sense of imagination.

    Is it just me, or is Coipel shrinking the heads of his characters even more than before. Thor towards the end of the issue looked like a his head belonged to a midget. It was so compressed, it made no sense. I like how Coipel draws all the regular folks, Volstagg, Galactus and the Silver Surfer, but I like his Thor less and less. I hate it when artists become caricatures of themselves. However, I have to say that with the head compression thing, the Silver Surfer really looked like he had been drawn by Jack Kirby.

    The end of "The Galactus Seed" winds up disappointing because of the number of plot elements that wind up being nothing more than teases. The seed, Thor's injury, even the promise of the Destroyer in this issue -- they all add up to nothing. Some great character work and Coipel's art save the issue from total disappointment.
