    This is seriously one of the best titles that Marvel's putting out, right now. I know a lot of readers are usually leery of Thor for fear of it being stuffy or dated, but this is truly a red-blooded, sleek reinvention of classical mythology that's right up there with the God of War games. Start picking this book up now, so when all the johny-come-latelys buy it after the Thor movie, you can say you knew it was good before anybody else. Read Full Review

    The story itself is fantastic, as Thor silently works his way through Hell and its various trials and distractions, and Tyr gets some much needed character building. I was also most impressed by Richard Elson's art. Elson was given a wonderful opportunity with the entire issue occurring in Hell, and he doesn't disappoint. Elson lets his imagination run wild with crazy landscapes and truly creepy monsters. For what was supposed to but a short stint as a fill-in writer, Gillen has made a great impression in a short period of time. It'll be sad to see him leave the title. His writing combined with some fantastic visuals make this a can't miss issue. Read Full Review

    I'm looking forward to giving the upcoming Fraction and Ferry issues a whirl, but as Gillen and Elson wrap up their time on board "Thor," I think Marvel's found a good team to bridge the gap. It's been a pleasant enough ride, and I think it's stayed true to the tone established prior. That's about all you hope for with an extended fill-in team, so good job to them. Read Full Review

    Thor has quickly devolved from a great book to one of mediocrity. The artwork doesn’t raise anything up to any particular heights, it just hits the beats. Richard Elson does pull out the stops with his camera angles, and he really does succeed at some great panels, but everything just comes together in a very un-exciting way. It’s an alright read when it seems like not too long ago it was a fantastic read. It’s by these standards that this issue falls so short for me. I’m giving it a C- and really hope that Marvel gets this title back into fighting shape pretty soon. Recent months have felt like it’s just toeing the line. Read Full Review
