    Aaron and Del Mundo are only two issues in and are already in the zone. Wild new concepts in familiar settings, wonderfully vicious new villains and monster trucks".the creative team may have changed slightly but this book is still one of Marvel's finest standard bearers by far.

    Stepping lithely into his comfort zone, Jason Aaron provides a fun and entertaining Thor story in THOR #2 that is unlike any of his previous endeavors. This isn't the serious or moody Thor that we have grown used to in comics. Nonetheless, his personality leads to a high tension story with huge entertainment value. Read Full Review

    A strong second issue, especially if you are tuned into the long history (and supporting characters) of Thor. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Jul 2, 2018

    Issue 2 starts with a bang and ends with one. Love the reunion of all the Boys and Karnilla to help them out. But things can't always be what they seem and that's what makes this fun. Tons of great action and comedy with some gorgeous art. The ending alone is going to keep you hyped up for the next issue Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Jul 8, 2018

    While this story lacked the subtext and narrative nuances promised by the first issue, it remains a rollicking adventure story, laden with beauty and wit. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Shawn A. Warner Jul 2, 2018

    Thor #2 continues to reveal the events of the WAR of Realms while maintaining an entertaining fusion of old and new characters. Jason Aaron crafts his Asgardian narrative with an eye toward the untold future and a foot firmly planted in the storied past of continuity. Visually, Mike del Mundo's stunning images are the stuff of our most frightening nightmares tempered by the visions of our wildest dreams. If you have been living off world and missed Aaron's amazing Thor run thus far, now is your chance to jump on. I highly recommend doing so. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 28, 2018

    Thor #2 continues the War of Realms and Odinson saga in style. It brings back many classic Asgardian characters, gives a reasonably sized story, and brings the insane yet appealing art stylings of Mike del Mundo. This one comes with a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 27, 2018

    There is some great dialogue in this issue and the characters really stand out as interesting and fun, but the climax of the issue is definitely the best part of it overall. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Dispatchdcu Jun 27, 2018

    Overall, Aaron's story ultimately gives us our familiar Thor we've grown to love. We get to see the band (family) get back together again, AND I'm totally ready to see that family dinner. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jul 4, 2018

    In the end, even though this issue drags a bit, every series deserves a moment to slow down and set things up for the future. Aaron has certainly earned the readers patience with his storytelling, and, given the promising ending to this chapter, readers are in for a treat in the coming weeks. Be patient, and you will surely be rewarded. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 30, 2018

    Jason Aaron's Thor remains a fun comic, but this issue gets really really wordy with all the new mythology and characters it tries to cram in. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jul 2, 2018

    Thor #2 has a decent enough story still setting up the threats were dealing with alternating in just enough action to keep the book interesting.  If you're unfamiliar with the characters you may get more mileage out of this issue than I did, but if you have a history with the cast the exposition most likely wont do much for you.  The art style continues to baffle me as transitions, coloring choices, and character designs just aren't what I enjoy. I hope there may be a change coming in that department in the near future. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Jul 2, 2018

    "Thor" #2 is a solid but quiet follow-up to the debut issue, lacking the tension of the Jane Foster-led series. Read Full Review
