Thor is back and better than ever! Reenergized and reinvigorated, the Mighty God of Thunder presides over a similarly restored Asgard. But moments of quiet are never meant to last. With Mjolnir in hand, Thor sets off to defend his city yet again!

    Still, that aside, this is another terrific issue in what is quickly developing into one of Marvel's best series. I can only hope Straczynski has even bigger plans for his next major storyline. That would be a book fit for the gods. Read Full Review

    JMS doesn't seem to have it in him to really get any epic, barbaric, Asgardian flavor into the story, unless it's as a punchline or to teach a lesson about responsibility. And the rest of the time it's just damned depressing. No fun at all. Read Full Review

    For the Thor / Odin stuff, it's a Must Read, but the other half focused on Blake, I find it's a take it or leave it type of story and I'll be glad to see the two recombined next issue and more focus shifted back to Thor and company. Read Full Review
