    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 28, 2019

    This issue right here probably gave us one of the most heartfelt conclusions to an event that we have ever gotten in a while. Thor #16 wrapped this event up perfectly, addressed where the gods go from here, and what to expect next in Jason Aaron's final story to come. It wasn't too surprising to see where they were going with it, but it has been a long time coming. It would be madness to not want to see what happens as King Thor takes on this final foe.

    Aaron and Del Mundo have this Thor thing down to a science. The right amount of heart, wonder and a little bit of suspense for what's to come"and you have a well crafted Thor book. If I could go back to college and major in Thor, I'd want Jason Aaron to be my professor. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 28, 2019

    Thor #16 is a warm, satisfying sendoff to Thor's vast supporting cast, offering a few peeks at the man himself in the course of surveying his friends and family. The art is vibrant and varied and the script is eager to supply exquisite insights - particularly when it comes to giving Odin closure. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Aug 28, 2019

    If you love Thor, Asgard, WAR OF THE REALMS, and Jason Aarons run that started way back in 2012, this issue is a must buy to wrap up one of your favorite writers stories. However, if youre buying this issue looking for answers or incredibly outrageous plot twists, you wont find it here. This issue puts a nice bow on an unthinkable 7 year narrative that took Thor Odinson on an incredible hero journey through some highs and lows. However, even though Aarons THOR is done, his story still continues. With only 4 issues of KING THOR to go, this reviewer is pumped to find out how the story ends with future Thor and to see the REAL epic conclusion. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Aug 28, 2019

    Overall, if youve followed this title throughout Aarons run, and you read The War of the Realms, you could probably skip this issue. And still, feel pretty satisfied with what you read as an ending. If everything else is a tasty ice cream sundae, this issue serves as the cherry on top. Its not necessary, and you wouldnt necessarily miss it if it wasnt there, but you wouldnt complain about it being there, either. Read Full Review
