    Nick Klein continues to turn in great work. Very expressive and easter egg hunting worth stuff. In fact, this book continues to excel on panels where there is no talking, and where the creative team lets the art speak for itself. Best situational artwork, that I have seen in a long time.

    Klein delivers some fantastic art in this issue. There is an intensity to the story and characters which Klein brings forth in every panel. Read Full Review

    Give me depth especially with the relationship struggles between THOR and Odin. Readers, the ideas and premise are there. I think we just need more. Ultimately, I cant figure out what Cates is trying to say. Whats the theme? Is it about a new Kings burden and struggles? And if so, how can the average folk relate? Is it about the loss of power? And if so, help readers iron out those feelings. No one can argue THOR #20 has voice, style, and potential. But again, the story just needs some teeth as well as cliffhangers and previews that dont self sabotage Kleins artistic talents. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless!

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 8, 2022

    This may just be me, but all of the twists and turns the story takes in this issue feel redundant and uninteresting. It feels like Donny Cates enjoys writing a certain kind of villain, and now this new storyline is moving into exactly that kind of villain. Read Full Review

    The book shines in those moments, but the story unfolding around them is a lot less interesting. Read Full Review

    I'll admit I've been liking this arc. I can see why people might be mad but, I just read to have fun. For what it's worth it has me interested.

    It's really great issue.
    I think Cates gonna retcon Aaron God Tempest BS or it is God Tempest angered from Eons of imprisonment. Latter is interesting.

    Not bad, but not really grabbing my attention the way the Black Winter and Donald Blake arcs did.

    Classic father-son quarrel followed by the great reveal of the 'God of Hammers.'

    It's not a bad issue..... it's just how there are so many retcons that literally does not make sense if you read it.

    I lost a bit of interest with every turn of the page, and by the end, Mjolnr flashing the audience (with lightning) still wasn't enough to salvage my opinion.

    For a book that's primary appeal is the art, I was really let down by Klein's depiction of a sentient hammer. Not sure what I was expecting, but She-Electro just seemed lazy.

    Meh, I’m starting to lose interest in what’s happening in this. It’s not bad, just doesn’t have the surprises and great character work that earlier Marvel-era Cates had. I do really enjoy Nic Klein’s art but the storytelling is kind of bland. Most likely dropping this middling series.

    Yeah, this is bad, so Mjolnir is a... chick now? Kind of? Just get Donny Cates off the book, he doesn't care about it and he's just not in a good form lately, he's also bad on Hulk. I don't know what happened, maybe success got to his head, maybe he's having a hard time like King did when he wrote the second half of Batman, point is this is just bad, more Odin-bashing, angry-for-nothing Thor and awful interactions between characters. The rating is this high because of the art, but Thor deserves better than this.
