Once upon a time, Jane Foster and Donald Blake were more than friends. With Blake at her side, Jane could've shared the very throne of Asgard. Now...they are about to become the bitterest of enemies. And if Valkyrie falls, she'll have lost more than a crown. All of the Ten Realms are at stake - not to mention the life of All-Father Thor!

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Mar 9, 2021

    This issue was pure, wacky fun, but still managed to up the threat of Donald Blake. Cates is doing such a great job of building a new villain for Thor that you cant help but hope this isnt a one-off story where Blake dies or returns to a normal life of his own in the end. He needs to stick around in some capacity as a nemesis to Odinson, especially with Loki (sometimes) working on the side of the angels these days. Either way, this arc has been spectacular, despite the main character being lost in another dimension, and this issue has been the best of them all so far. Heres hoping Cates can stick the landing in the last two chapters. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Feb 17, 2021

    Donny Cates is one of Marvels top writers at the moment, and his clear love for Thor has really elevated his work here. One of the best Thor stories in a very long time, Blake is a villain who is more than worthy of taking on Thor. It’s clear that Cates has been planning this series for a long time, and there are even bigger changes and challenges for our heroes ahead. The art from Klein and Wilson is unbelievably good, making this one of the best looking comics currently out there. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Feb 17, 2021

    One thing I'm glad this comic finally did was show us where Odin's been all this time. Though I expected more for the former king of Asgard, I'm not too surprised by his current state. Marvel comic writers have spent five or so years making Odin a shadow of his former self in all kinds of ways. Even though I don't like it, finding him in some bar halfway across the Universe adds up. Here's hoping Donny Cates actually does something cool with Odin in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Feb 17, 2021

    Nic Klein is doing a really nice job of bringing the facial expressions needed for the level of distress and despair these characters have been under. Cates, please keep your foot on the high stakes pedal because this has been a positively unexpected high octane series of events since Blake went Thor hunting, and I'm here for it! Read Full Review

    Getting to see Throg cut loose in a truly epic fight scene is worth the price of admission all on its own. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Feb 18, 2021

    Thor #12 is an extremely intense read. Or at least, it was for this reader. It's been difficult yet fascinating, watching Donald Blake tear his way through Thor's world. While I don't think any of us want to see him succeed, there is a certain level of morbid curiosity surrounding it all. Read Full Review

    Throg versus Donald Blake, smashing through the ten realms and ... well, honestly, no, that doesn't make a lick of doggone sense, and it's downhill from here. Read Full Review
