    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Feb 12, 2020

    With the creative team of Donny Cates, Nic Klein and Matt Wilson we were obviously going to be onto a winner. The amount of love and passion the three of them have for this project is abundantly clear. This is shaping up to be one of, if not THE, best runs on Thor. And I can say this with certainty despite only being three issues in. That’s how good it is. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Feb 12, 2020

    This is a true battle between masters of their craft and weaponry. The art evokes the swordplay of Jim Cheung's Scion and the emotion of the battle on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith. The team of Donny Cates and Nic Klein take Superhero Action to the level of true artistry. The simple plot and incredible execution leads to conflicts, characterizations and visual dynamism which any child or grown-child will read and reread for generations. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 12, 2020

    I'm not the type to give in to hype, but right now this book is the hype! After these past three issues, it is much easier to say that this series is still in good hands. Thor #3 was Earth-shattering for the position that Thor is put into when confronted for his decision to help Galactus of all people. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 12, 2020

    This is without a doubt the best popcorn comic on the stands right now. Kick your feet up and enjoy what is becoming one of the most aggressive and loud comics on the stands. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Feb 13, 2020

    Thor #3 was every bit as dramatic and haunting as fans were led to hope. We may have known this fight was coming (courtesy of the conclusion from Thor #2), but there really was no way to prepare for what actually happened. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 24, 2020

    At the end of the day, this was a fun issue, but it slows the story down to a glacial pace. In three Chapters, Thor and Galactus have traveled to the first of five planets they need to find, and proceeded to fight over how theyre going to do the job, despite having discussed all of that before starting their journey. This pacing cannot keep up. The fun of this story should be in moving along to each planet, and encountering difficulties as they go, but not at the slow crawl of 3 issues a planet with little-to-no development. While the fisticuffs of this chapter were fun enough, and the outcome somewhat unexpected, story progression must come soon. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Feb 14, 2020

    Nic Klein has been putting in workkkkk from the jump. Like the 2 issues before it, the opening pages of this book are absolutely breathtaking and sport some of the coolest pages I've ever set my eyes on. Cates has created a version of Thor that breathes life into the God of Thunder and creates some actual urgency for a God so strong he has bested Galactus twice now. Read Full Review
