    As far as the art goes, the team of Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth has been a treat for the eyes. Each page bursts with color. Even in Odin's tomb, where most everything is drab and solemn, colors are popping off the page in contrast to the setting. Visually, it has the feel of a big action story. It goes with the story so well that Thor fans should feel pretty lucky that the quality of the series is still running high. Read Full Review

    Weaker than last month's issue in some ways, stronger in others, but still all-around awesome. Read Full Review

    The issue's last page development is an exciting one, and implies Fraction has a lot more up his sleeves than a simple invasion of Asgard and Earth by dangerous, evil forces. Still, compared to last issue's ridiculously tight and inspired structure, this chapter's conventional approach to storytelling was a little disappointing. But again, that's mostly a reflection of the narrative requirements of any second installment of a greater story than an actual complaint. It's hard to think of many second issues that lived up to the wonder and energy of a great debut. What's important is that all signs still point to Fraction and Perry embarking on a run for the ages.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 16, 2010

    This issue is definitely teetering on the edge of Buy It territory thanks to the strong sense of atmosphere in the writing and the always awesome work of Pasqual Ferry. Unfortunately, the lack of plot movement and the repeated beats from last issue drag this one back into a Check It verdict. Its still a fun issue and I've got a feeling that, given time, this will be a muchtalked about run for the title, but it needs to start picking up a little before it starts losing readers (including this one).

    "Thor" still holds a lot of promise, but for now it's in need of a slightly faster pace. Watching Thor mope for two issues isn't the most exciting of stories, and with nothing else moving quickly either it makes me wonder if the real replacement for Asgard in the Nine Worlds was a dimension full of molasses. Here's to a slightly quicker pace next month. Read Full Review
