    This issue serves as a way to explore what happened from the Asgardian side before the Siege and to let the reader know why they did not foresee the attack of Norman Osborn and his Dark Avengers. It Not a bad issue, but more a behind the scene story that adds a few details here and there, but is not compelling reading. Its the type of issue one could easily skip until the Siege crossover ends. Tan needs a better inker that rounds up his coarse lines. If that happened, his work would be more enjoyable. Elson is the opposite. He needs coarser and thicker lines to contour his work, although it looks good here. Read Full Review

    Billy Tan and Rich Elson split the art chores this month and it works out well. Elson's art is a more classical style that matches with the scenes within Asgard proper, while Tan's superhero influenced art is a stronger fit for Volstagg's scenes in Oklahoma. When it's time for punches to be thrown (even if I had to groan at the arrival of the villain, one whom if we're lucky Gillen will kill off once and for all), Tan does a good job of keeping the tension level high. "Thor" #607 is a good use for a "Siege" crossover; after all, the siege is of Asgard, so it's about time we saw how its inhabitants are doing. Gillen may have been hired to serve as a bridge between Straczynski and incoming writer Matt Fraction, but he's doing a good job in his own right as well. Read Full Review

    By the time Gillen got around to introducing a complication that presumably will guide this arc moving forward, part of me had already checked out. I'd rather be reading Siege, and I don't even like that book. Don't get me wrong, there are some strong moments here, I just can't help but think Gillen's second story arc would have been better served by taking place either before Siege (like his first) or after it. Anyone who's ever played sports knows sitting on the sidelines is rarely any fun. Read Full Review
