    Great first issue by Gillen. I know he's only on for a brief arc here, but I look forward to future work on the book from him. Tan's art was also a pleasant surprise. Didn't expect it to be that good. Read Full Review

    As far as major comic book transitions go, this one actually went over fairly smooth, or at least as smoothly as it could. Thor remains an entertaining, well crafted book, and that should be good news to fans who expected the wheels to immediately fall off the cart after JMS' departure. That's definitely a good thing, even if Gillen is faced with the same unfortunate predicament of not controlling the fate of Asgard until Siege is over. And who knows, by that time he may not even by on the book any longer. Read Full Review

    Overall, Thor still remains a strong read. The impending reunion of Thor with his Asgardian brethren and their battle against Doom is worth looking forward to. Lets hope that the next storyline is nearly as epic as this one has been. Read Full Review

    After loving Phonogram, its certainly a treat to see Gillen applying that same love for magic and mythos in his Marvel writing career. Though fans in the end will decide how important the run is, the actual storytelling and art alone make it a worthy follow up to what JMS left in terms of plot points and story beats.

    It's far from the horrific drop-off some predicted, but there are some small glitches and the character death is absolutely unforgivable. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 1, 2009

    Reminiscient of the "Acts of Vengeance" story from 1989 wherein heroes faced foes who were not their regular sparring partners, this story sets Doctor Doom up against Thor (and friends). To me, this seems like a massive mismatch. After all, Thor is a god. Doom, however, has some tricks left in his arsenal. I would think that with the dastardly deeds Doom has performed, however, that he has made new enemies for life. Read Full Review
