A vengeful Donald Blake, Thor's enchanted ax, Jarnbjorn, and the World Tree - not a good combination! With Thor still nowhere to be found, Blake is about to finish what he started: the end of Asgard! Meanwhile, Valkyrie manages to track down the long-absent Odin, but he is not the same All-Father he once was. Can Odin rise to the occasion and help save his son and Asgard? And who will help Lady Sif and the others in Dimension Blood? Surprises abound as the gods face the fight of their eternal lives in the penultimate chapter of "Prey"!

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Mar 23, 2021

    We are entering the final phase of this arc. Asgard seems to finally be turning things around. I feel like I can see how this story is coming to an end. I would be pleasantly surprised if it's any different than what is expected. Either way, I'm sure Cates and crew will bring it to a satisfying conclusion.  Read Full Review

    Donny Cates gives us the penultimate issue of his Prey arc, and it's damn good! We are in for a huge finale next month, and while most of what we get here sets that up, it's big, nasty fun with a ton of fantastic characters. I can't wait to see Donald Blake get his! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Dan Spinelli Mar 17, 2021

    Like most Donny Cates comics, Thor is an absolute blast to read with a visual feast on every page. But is this a comic that's exactly trying to say something about Thor as a character"and should that even matter? Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Mar 17, 2021

    In general, while the issue doesn't solicit an evocative reaction, it does lay the pieces in place to set up for a glorious final showdown between Thor and Donald Blake. Cates has done well to position the pieces of his plot to keep the readers firmly hooked every month. It'll be fascinating to see how this one concludes, and I, for one, can't wait to see it. Knowing Cates, he's got more in store for these characters than we can anticipate! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 22, 2021

    While there was plenty of power showcased Thor #13 is very much the calm before the storm. Every character involved in this story has united to take on the unstoppable rage that has completely blinded Donald Blake. In the process we get a lot of strong character moments that build hype for how the "Prey" story arc will end in its final chapter. Read Full Review

    The details in this epic Thor saga can get messy if you think about them too long, but none of them take away from the grand spectacle of it all. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 17, 2021

    The Prey storyline is heating up for an epic final battle in the next issue. Cates’ clear love for the character comes across in every page, and the stakes have never been higher. The art team of Klein and Wilson is second to none and each page is stunning. Epic writing, blockbuster action, gorgeous pages, there’s nothing to not love. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 17, 2021

    Thor #13 is a dramatic addition to this plot arc. One that I have to admit I'm enjoying even more than I expected. The whole Donald Black plot has been intense and just a little bit harrowing, adding some much-needed consequences to that backstory. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Mar 17, 2021

    There was definitely power and pure awesomeness in this installment of THOR that can't be overlooked. Klein's illustrations, for one, were incredible and vibrant. Nevertheless, I can't help but miss the lack of story that's been missing for quite some time in this series. Readers, it's just masked in pomp, circumstance, and banality. Read Full Review

    The weight and weaknesses of this story are a bit stronger in this issue as it stretches on more and more. Read Full Review
