Wandering Gods
Asgard stands once more. Thor has reclaimed his role as the God of Thunder, and key members of his Norse pantheon stand by his side. Now, the blockbuster first arc by fan-mega-favorites J. Michael Straczynski (SPIDER-MAN: ONE MORE DAY) and Olivier Coipel (HOUSE OF M) comes to an end. What will be the new status quo for the Odinson? Just be sure to get this one before it sells out like the rest!!

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Feb 28, 2008

    Notably absent from this book is the opening page that explains what's happened in previous issues. I'm not sure why it was omitted, but it would have been a welcome addition considering how this book has been delayed for months! Otherwise, this is the best issue of Thor yet. Read Full Review

    What a difference an issue can make. In the past, despite my enjoyment of the series, I found myself secretly wishing a different writer would take over Thor - and soon. After this issue, Straczynski has won me back completely. Hopefully the rest of the naysayers will feel the same way. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 27, 2008

    I didn't think an issue where so little happened could be so good. Eventually the book will have to deliver some kind of plot progression or conflict, but if it stays like this for a little while, I won't be complaining, either. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 4, 2008

    Thor #6 was another fine read. JMS has truly found his home on this title. If you like grand tales delivered in the proper dramatic fashion then you will certainly enjoy Thor. If you enjoy fantasy themed stories then you should definitely give Thor a try. However, readers who enjoy a bit more action and faster pacing may not enjoy this title all that much.

    I like Coipels work and how he draws town folks and Asgardians. They are flip coins of each other and the scene where they interact in the city hall, reminds me of some of the warmer slice of life paintings from early Dutch Renaissance painters. All go about their businesses, with red cheeks, filled stomachs and simple candour. I wish more comic books made me feel this good about knowing art history! Read Full Review
