    This series is slowly becoming one of my favorite stories of all time. If someone were to ask me right now which one ongoing they needed to read, Thor would most assuredly get my vote. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 30, 2008

    The issue wasn't all drama with Loki and Balder. We had a return of Sir William, from the nearby town, whereby he came to Asgard to visit the beautiful Kelda. His gifting of flowers to her was easily one of the best moments of the week and consisted of her asking him to throw the flowers all the way up to the top wall of Asgard. After failing the first time, he ties a rock to it and throws the flowers, which smash, off-panel, into Kelda's face, ending the scene with her thanking him and inviting him up as she goes to find a cloth for her face. The two have some more fun as throughout the issue as William tries to explain basketball and the points system it uses to the Asgardians to varying degrees of success. Read Full Review

    So, I suppose maybe I should give those Walt Simonson trades a shot now that I like Thor so much, shouldn't I. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy May 27, 2008

    Laura Martin is a name to look for when you're thinking about purchasing your comics. Period. Unless you're one of those people who count the words as the only indicator of how much story value you're getting for your money. Anyone who "reads" a comic in just a couple of minutes, regardless of how many actual words are on the pages (or aren't) is doing a disservice to the medium and the artists involved. For the inking and coloring alone, this book gets knocked up to 3.5 Bullets. Just try to ignore the clichs in the plotting and dialogue. Read Full Review
