    Even if this issue is a bit of a stumble, the series has been excellent overall, and I'm anxious to see how it all wraps up. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Those waiting for the invading World Eaters to finally draw blood against the Asgardians won't be disappointed either. More than one character meets a heroic end in this issue. Even if death truly is a revolving door for Asgardians in this series, the scenes carry weight and tragedy about them. To top it all off, Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth deliver another consistently brilliant set of pages this month. They truly capture the fantastical qualities that made the Thor series one of Jack Kirby's finest contributions to the medium. I salivate at the thought of the inevitable Omnibus hardcover for this run. Read Full Review

    With Odin back, should we expect to see changes in how the stories are told or how they play out? Will we continue to see change in the Thor character? Will he even survive the battle? If nothing else, Fraction's got my attention! Read Full Review

    So far, "Thor" hasn't managed to live up to the promise of Fraction, Ferry, and Hollingsworth's first issue, but it's definitely on the right track, recovering from issues of stagnation. The World-Eaters are here and they look to present a serious threat to the Aesir, while Thor's decision to bring back Odin already seems like a bad one. It may have taken some time, but "Thor" is entertaining and engrossing. Read Full Review
