    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Mar 12, 2015

    On with the rest of the book! Dauterman continues to nail it with this issue, especially with his take on Heimdall and the rainbow bridge. The disjointed panels look incredible and nicely visceral, giving a stark difference between the Thors (spoiler: one has a giant axe again). Featuring another cheap appearance by Coulson that can be forgiven and a pact that can surely mean no good, this issue really did have it all. Go buy it, please and thank you. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Mar 11, 2015

    This creative team has been knocking it out of the park with this newest Thor series. Yet, this issue was the best one yet. There were hilarious moments, touching moments, some action and intrigue all in one issue that doesn't feel bogged down or cluttered. This latest Thor series has risen beyond the label of “gimmick” with a female taking over the role as the God of Thunder. Remarkable art and high-quality story telling is what makes Thor such a hit, not matter who wields Mjolnir. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Mar 11, 2015

    Thor #6 is a kick-ass comic that has become the first thing I read any week it is released. This is one of Marvel's strongest series at the moment and Aaron and Dauterman are telling a truly epic tale. Issue #6 does a great job of moving several plots forward while giving readers some great moments with some iconic characters and the final pages are filled with rumbling thunder. Issue #6 is big and the pieces are in play for issue #7 to be huge. Read Full Review

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Mar 12, 2015

    The art is very nice. The part that really stands out is how well Matthew Wilson and Russell Dauterman work together. Usually these type of effects come across very heavy handed, but they mesh well here and do not look out of place. Scenes in Asgard are very bright, and on Earth, they are very grounded. It's a very appropriate art style for this story and these characters. Some scenes that should have more impact don't quite have it, but I can forgive that for that Jane Foster scene. While it wasn't perfect, it was well done. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 12, 2015

    This installment of Thor spends a lot of time talking and moving particular pieces around and that makes it an engaging read. And one that's not over in a couple of minutes, which certainly adds value to the cost of the book. With a lot of solid scripting throughout, good movement between stories and the gorgeous artwork from Russell Dauterman, it's an expositionary piece that lays out a lot of what's going on and in store and does it in a way that just draws you in completely. I love the whole Agger and Malekith story with the potential there and there's a lot to like in seeing Odinson struggle with trying to figure out who it is that's taken over the mantle, even as far more pressing matters are brushed aside in true form. Luckily though, it looks like Thor is about to take center stage next time around and we'll see her getting some good hammer action in. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 11, 2015

    The creative team will of course have to be careful in its drawing out of the search for the identity of this new Thor. In a sense it is not fair as some heroes have maintained their own identities for several decades, often hiding in plain sight without anyone the wiser. In this case, readers will demand an explanation, and while it is going to draw out, it is still important to keep the momentum moving forward, as without it the series would stumble. It is successful in that regard with this issue, framing the story around this investigation but prescient enough of itself to know where its focus has to rest. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jose R. Mar 11, 2015

    It's nice to have progress in this book, since the past few issues were focused on Thor's power and battlefield capabilities. It looks as if we're in for some more epic action (which is something we all want from a “Thor” title), so the wait for the next issue can't come soon enough. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Mar 11, 2015

    THOR #6 is an incredible experience for the eyes and there's plenty of enjoyable dialogue, but the handling of the big mystery will come as no surprise to pre-existing fans and it can feel a little heavy-handed at times. New readers will likely be surprised, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them. I also imagine they'll be a little confused since they don't know the character all that well just yet. Still, the combination of wonderful artwork, some well-crafted conversations, and several interesting plot points being put into motion makes this yet another issue that kept me thoroughly entertained and left me looking forward to the next chapter. I just hope they justify why this person has been attempting to hide their identity. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Mar 18, 2015

    No, you won't find out who's under that helmet this month, but, perhaps for the first time, this issue will leave you more interested to know the answer than Jason Aaron is to tell you, or not tell you, as the case may be. In a somewhat similar manner as he did last month, Aaron takes this installment to catch us up with goings on around the two Thors' worlds. Read Full Review
