    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Apr 15, 2015

    Watching this new Thor have to go through so much dissent every issue, seems to mirror how some felt about having a new (and female) Thor wielding Mjolnir. However, this Thor has proven on the page to both her fictional and real oppressors that she is more than a gimmick. This team of creators shows you that it's the art and the story that keeps readers truly coming back for more Thor. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Apr 16, 2015

    Final ThoughtsMonth after month, Jason Aaron's THOR continues to impress me. He is able to take relatively simple stories and expand them into the mythical to make them suit the overall tone of what Thor is. I am really loving the fact that the identity of Thor is still a mystery. While we inch closer and closer to figuring out her identity I feel as though having this identity a mystery adds to the overall grandeur of what Thor is.Russell Dauterman andMatthew Wilson's art is just wonderful. I have flipped through this book a few times because of how beautiful everything is. Between great storytelling and fantastic art, this issue of Thor is all sorts of win. Read Full Review

    And Dauterman is just a phenomenal artist. Wow. He's going to join the ranks of Olivier Coipel and Steve McNiven in terms of Marvel's heavy hitters, I can tell. The art is just so crisp and clear, so full of detail and personality. I hope Dauterman's career skyrockets after his run on Thor. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 16, 2015

    There's some great storytelling going on here for the characters and they're all inhabiting such a fascinating world visually as Russell Dauterman continues to make this a hugely impressive book just from that alone. I keep a limit on the number of series I'm reading, but this book is right along the top in those that cannot be missed. Very good stuff. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Apr 16, 2015

    Thor is a monthly dose of fist-pumping inspiration. The impatience level for the confirmation of her identity next month has hit its limit. While nothing is officially confirmed in this issue, pick it up for the action, emotion, continueddemolishment of the old guard; and you'll never forget the gorgeous pages that sing with fluid movement and beauty.

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Apr 16, 2015

    Jason Aaron is doing a bang-up job of maintaining the mystery the woman under the helmet, without losing the stronger narrative within Thor's internal monologue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Apr 15, 2015

    The story does use some of what is familiar to the character, perhaps even too familiar in the case of the previous Thor, but the presence of the familiar is necessary at the same time. After all, this series seems as though it has many great stories left to tell, but first it must deal with the story of who is the new Thor (the conclusion of which is promised for the following issue.) That some familiar ground has been covered does not make this stale, rather it acts as a convenience for a character that needs to have some of what came before in order to establish herself for the future. As it stands, this issue continues the standout work on this series to date, and promises more to come. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Apr 20, 2015

    Thor says herself on the final page, "My true story hasn't even begun. But it's about to," and up until now, we've barely skimmed the surface in terms of discovering more about her personality and motivations. But somehow, Aaron, Dauterman and Wilson have made the journey to that discovery just as much fun as it could possibly be. This is the last time Thor will be an unknown quantity to us, but the suspense and thrill of this storyline won't be soon forgotten. Read Full Review

    Next issue we have the big reveal.Who is the lady under the helmet. There may be clues in this issues. It will be interesting to see what the fans will say following the reveal. I am even more interested in the response should Odinson retrieve the hammer. If you, like me, have preconception of a Thor book, go check it out. You may be surprised. Read Full Review

    However, this issue poses more of a tease to Thor's identity than anything else. Here are the facts. Take them for what they're worth. And we'll be back next issue for the big reveal. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Ryan Utterback Apr 19, 2015

    Overall, this issue serves its purpose of leading to the climax that we have been waiting for – the battle between Thor and Odin and, more importantly, the unmasking of the new Thor, which Jason Aaron promises will happen in the next issue. Did Jason Aaron show his hand too early in this issue and give away that Roz Solomon is the new Thor, or was that simply a red herring? Hopefully the latter. Not that Roz wouldn't be a good Thor, but I'd hate for the big unveiling of Thor's identity to be the seemingly obvious answer. Aaron's writing is up to his usual standard in this book, and each character has a unique voice and tone that give each of them a distinct personality. Dauterman's art is great as well, as it has been throughout the pair's run on Thor. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 15, 2015

    Artist Dauterman also aids in that regard, his crisp pencils and dynamic layouts again appealing. He and colorist Matthew Wilson combine for a number of gorgeous visuals, each unique and distinct in their imagining. From the bright, sickly greens and damaging nature of a toxic refinery to a horrifying yet oddly beautiful display of elvish murder, the duo ensures that every page is worth a linger. Couple that with Thor's epic knock down brawl with the Destroyer (complete with one heck of an impressive cavalry) and you have a book that's sure to enthrall even after the mystery fades.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 18, 2015

    So far in the past couple of years, Marvel has managed to chase me away from comics I've been buying since the '60s, including Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man. I hope Thor doesn't join their ranks. Read Full Review
