    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 11, 2020

    There hasn’t been a bad issue in this run on Thor. A phenomenal creative team of Cates, Klein and Wilson make this epic series a must have. Cliffhanger endings keep me on tenterhooks between issues. A level of intricately detailed artwork and rich colours which defy belief. An instant classic. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 11, 2020

    With each issue, this book continues to keep you at the edge of your seat. I don't know if this would be categorized as Thor's greatest enemy yet, but it is certainly one which has left him more vulnerable than he has been since the time he was unworthy. Overall, Thor #4 served as a perfect set-up for what is to come when the sacrifices to get to this point can't be in vain for the God of Thunder. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Sonneville Mar 15, 2020

    I was not familiar with either of the creative forces behind this book prior to picking up this issue, but they have made me a fan. Even if you are not a Thor aficionado, this current run is one to check out if you love the art of comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 13, 2020

    Thor #4 was another fantastic issue by Donny Cates and Nic Klein. Cates continues to understand how to perfectly write Thor, Galactus, and Sif as fascinating, multi-layered characters. Meanwhile, Klein elevates everything going on with the Black Winter storyline by filling Thor #4 with incredible artwork to bring Cates' story to life. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Mar 11, 2020

    he stakes are high, the issue is fast and furious, and the characters' emotions are fueled by their actions throughout the issue. There is no doubt in my mind that the character of Thor is growing throughout this narrative and he's doing so in such a short amount of time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 1, 2020

    Overall, its too early to tell if this story is really working yet. It started as one thing and seems to be evolving into something else, resulting in somewhat confusing pacing. In the long run, that could be a good thing. Right now, it just seems sloppy or uneven, at best. Cates, over his time at Marvel, has earned enough goodwill with the readers to keep them around a little longer, though. Just how long, nobody knows. Read Full Review

    Thor #4 boasts several successes, but one of the most important ones is how it manages to convey just how devastating the Black Winter is. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 11, 2020

    Thor #4 was an intense and thrilling read, one that brought about many changes and surprises. It's hard to say how far-reaching the impact on what just happened will be. But I, for one, intend to stick around and find out. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Mar 13, 2020

    While this was the first issue of Cates run that didn't feature a jaw dropping, hall of fame worthy opening page or 2, he really came hard in the emotional moments of Thor #4. Seeing Sif stand up to her King was so powerful. Seeing Thor blind himself in preparation of Winter's arrival and crying at the loss of life before him was humbling. Sure, this issue wasn't as great as the first three, but Thor keeps coming hard each month and #4 is no different. Read Full Review
