Thor and the other leaders of the Ten Realms (and, uh, Hawkeye?) have gathered for a World Tree celebration! But the festivities come to an abrupt halt when a mysterious guest - and his otherworldly powers - crashes the party. And his "plus-one" is a dark, twisted version of Thor who is determined to become the iron-fisted ruler of all the realms!  
ALSO IN THIS ISSUE: Part 5 (of 8) of "Infinite Fury"!

    This is a great annual in its own right thanks to some impeccable art throughout and a story deserving of the annual format. Kuder has supplied an exciting story that utilizes the hero-fighting-himself trope to perfection. It's also one of the prettiest superhero comics of the year, period. Read Full Review

    There is a lot to enjoy about Thor Annual #1. Kuder really put his skills to the test in both the story and the book's art. It's fun, and I love it when artists create beautiful panels and spread that make readers look at every detail to make sure they aren't missing anything. The inkers and colorist did a great job as well. The issue does come to a rather abrupt ending, which I didn't care for. However, it adds to the idea that Thor as a character has come a long way from who he used to be. Read Full Review

    I was excited for this Annual, but I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it. It's the best kind of popcorn action comic- a punch-em-up with depth. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Lillian Hochwender Jul 19, 2021

    Thor Annual #1 is an action-packed, nostalgic read. In some ways a What If? issue, it reminds us of what transpired in older Thor stories, but also asks what might have happened instead. Read Full Review

    As with other entries in theInfinite Destinies series, Thor Annual #1 delivers entertainment, though with little connection to the other books, save for the Fury backup story. Read Full Review

    For this one I would recommend it to Thor completionists or anyone who just want a Thor story and already have the one where he punches the Hulk so hard they destroy a planet. Read Full Review
