    Of course, with his feature film debut just about a month away, it's no surprise to see so much attention being focused on Thor. As long as the quality stays this high, you'll hear no complaints from me. Read Full Review

    That being said, I was surprised when I realized Salvador Larroca worked on this book. I began to wonder why, and theories started sprouting. We already know this story was supposed to happen right after Siege, so the idea that this was going to be the final arc of the series before reverting back to Journey Into Mystery didn't exist originally. The ending we got today may not have been the original ending. So, was Larroca brought in to give us the bit with Kelda? We he given the opportunity to tease us for Kieron Gillen's series? I'm not thinking Ferry was replaced at any time due to problems or schedule or anything like that. I really think the end was altered in some way. So, as we now move into the Journey Into Mystery series, Kelda's creepy scene will likely play out a little more. Read Full Review

    "The World Eaters" has been -- in its monthly, piecemeal form -- a story arc that didnt really bother easing readers into the world but instead thrust them into the cosmic craziness. Solid stuff, but maybe not the best jumping-on point for new readers. That should come in April. Galactus? Bring it on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Apr 3, 2011

    Taken alone or as part of the whole, "Thor" #621 is a disappointing and baffling end to the Matt Fraction/Pasqual Ferry run. After a huge build-up, the conclusion to the story is anti-climactic and simplistic, relying on the convenient storytelling trick of 'it happens, because it happens' rather than actual logic or reasoning. Hopefully, now that everything seems to be where Fraction wants it, "The Mighty Thor" can deliver on the promise he showed in his "Ages of Thunder" one-shots and the "Secret Invasion: Thor" mini-series.

    That last point leads me to the art. Ferrys art is bare and basic as it gets. There arent any backgrounds or much else going on in the panel. Larroca pitched in and drew about half the issue. Im not sure if Perry couldnt finish the issue or if it was intentional to have two artists; my guess is it had something to do with Perry. The art, coupled with the fast pacing, really showed an inexperience or a lack of effort on the artists. This issue clearly had the rough put together in a hurry feel that led to an uneasy disinterested read. Read Full Review
