    A solid tie-in overall that Volstagg and Kelda fans should enjoy. And what Thor reader doesn't like those two? Read Full Review

    The story and art were both solid for this tie-in. If you're a fan of either Thor or Siege, there's no reason to miss this book. It's a welcome supplement to the core Siege event. Read Full Review

    More fighting between various Asgardians and humans occur this issue which serves as a tie-in to the Siege storyline. Kelda meets her deceased lovers parents and Volstagg fights the Thor android clone. This issue was filler while the Siege storyline continues its course. Its a shame that a series that was so strong when it started has become a shadow of what it was and lost all that momentum. Thor barely makes an appearance. Sure, I like Thors supporting cast, but Im definitely not liking where this series is going. Im putting Thor in the penalty box until after Siege to see if the writers can come up with better stories than the leftovers from Straczynski. The artwork is the best thing about this issue. The colouring is impressive too. However, thats not enough to keep this reader hooked. Read Full Review

    Without a doubt, "Thor" is going to be deeply impacted by the results of "Siege." It's evident in this issue. I am curious to see how Asgard recovers from that which has been brought upon it. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying the main Siege book, but I can't say much for the splinter books like this. It's not bad - it's just not particularly good, either. Maybe if we saw more of the title character... Read Full Review
