    Bianchi's art lives up to expectations and is a great match for the characters and world, while Robert Rodi sets up an intriguing story. There's a strong sense of how wrong things have gone in the world, culminating with the scene involving Thor and his hammer that is somewhat shocking. If you like your Thor with a healthy dose of fantasy influence, "For Asgard" is your book. Read Full Review

    In some ways, this book is an excellent home for Simone Bianchi. Bianchi's sense for surreal, medieval design and powerful heroes perfectly suits the tone of the story. His Asgard recalls the sci-fi-meets-mythology quality of Thor that is too often ignored these days. However, Bianchi is not a strong sequential artist. There's little narrative flow at work in these pages. Pretty though some panels may be, they often fail to mesh together and form a cohesive story. Thor: For Asgard has a lot going for it, but that's a pretty significant flaw to overlook. And with so much Thor content yet to come over the next year, readers can certainly afford to be picky.
