"BANNER OF WAR" PART TWO!
The 60th Anniversary celebration - and Thor and Hulk's epic rivalry - continues in the second installment of the crossover between the HULK and THOR series! Banner's newfound control of his rage is prolonging this fight more than Thor expected, and with Banner holding his own, Thor must get creative. Odin's breakthrough look into Banner's psyche seems to slow the violence, but will it be enough? Additionally, new creators to the THOR title bring glimpses into the possible futures of Thor and his friends!

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 18, 2022

    Thor #25 fills in critical and long-overdue blanks from the main Hulk run with clarity on everything from the Avengers' whereabouts to the oft-referenced El Paso incident. The art is generally good, except for an occasional odd panel with weird facial expressions and body proportions, and there are plenty of wow moments to keep you engaged. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 22, 2022

    All together Thor #25 is a strong package that continues the Hulk vs Thor: Banner Of War crossover along with celebrating the character's 60th anniversary. The developments for the crossover story progressed Thor and Hulk's respective narratives forward so you are even more invested in where their character arcs will be going from here.

    Although Cates is continuing to lean on altering power sets to generate his stories, it's working well for him here. The scenes in the bar come off as suitable traumatizing.

    It was very solid. I think that it hit some good notes with Tony, the incident in El Paso and that ending but, I did feel they half ass addressed the shift from Immortal Hulk. The back up stories were not that good except for seeing Ron Frenz back on some art.

    I would've liked the events of El Paso be told in a Hulk part, but otherwise I really liked this.

    I had fun with this one. Donny's blockbuster story is rightfully loud as can be, the second tale was very solid, and the Norse mythology story at the end was a strange addition, but it was a fun little read.

    For those wondering if Cates is ever going to acknowledge Immortal Hulk, you have your answer. I can understand it being slightly weird having it brought up in a Thor book, BUT to be fair it is not only acknowledged by the same writer but also that same said writer who is crossing the 2 books over this does make reading both books MATTER. Martin's art is pretty good. Nothing crazy here but it gets the job done. Cates writes a great Tony Stark by the way. Maybe one day he can write an Iron Man book. While I am not fond of the appearance of the Celestial-like Hulkbuster armor, it did make for a cool cliffhanger for an issue that empphasized on exposition. Looking forward to Hulk #7 next week and of course my interest in the Hulk series has es more

    It was better than the Alpha issue, at least.

    Cards on the table, I read this because it ties into the Hulk's comic. I'm not up on Thor, and I don't want to be.

    This issue committed one of the Cardinal Sins of Comics; it explained a key plot point for a series in a tie-in issue. We finally got an explanation of what happened in El Passo... in a Thor comic. Not a Hulk comic. There's no excuse for that. Otherwise it wasn't bad.

    The cover is great. Gary Frank has been killing it on covers for this crossover. Sure would be nice if Marvel'd pony up to have him do interiors. Speaking of which...yeah, not great. Martin Coccolo did a very uneven job on this issue, and there's no inker to lay the blame on. Some pages more
