    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Oct 15, 2013

    Overall this is solid issue with top-notch story and art. Jason Aaron is doing amazing things in this series, and he has definitely got me along for the ride, permanently.  He did mention in the letter column the possibility of a crossover with Wolverine, and I really hope he was just throwing that reader a bone. I absolutely detest Wolverine as a character, and I have no desire to read about him in the pages of Thor.  But that's a problem for the future. This issue as it stands is a gem. Read Full Review

    An under the radar Marvel Now book continues to deliver a new layer of brilliance in Thor: God Of Thunder. Jason Aaron has written a considerable amount of consistently enjoyable books at Marvel. Add this to his list, as it may very well go down as one of the best runs on the character in decades. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 10, 2013

    This will be another book to remember as it has started strong and continues to astound with how few punches Jason Aaron doesn't pull. Ride till Malekith is dead, or they are, that much is enough to describe what we can expect from the rest of this story. He has committed the most atrocious crimes and will answer for them. There's so much potential for this story and we are only on the second part. Thor God of Thunder remains the must read book for Marvel NOW! and is one you are recommended to read even if you aren't the biggest fan of Thor. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 9, 2013

    Ron Garney's art can't quite live up to the standard set by Esad Ribic in the first two arcs. Much of the problem seems to lie with the pairing of Garney's pencils and Ive Scorcina's colors. Garney's pencils have a tendency to lose definition when they aren't inked or paired with the right colorist, and Scorcina's colors definitely obscure his crisp line-work in certain panels. While Scorcina's colors lend a sense of consistency with previous issues, the trade-off in overall clarity isn't quite worth it. Read Full Review

    A very solid issue with the addition of a lot of colorful and interesting characters. Definitely an issue to go pick up. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Matt Sculthorpe Dec 19, 2013

    The art is good but not great. Its worth noting that there is two pencilers this issue. As with the previous issues it captures the fantasy aspect of the story well. The one scene that does WOW is when Thor uses the lightning to bury a member of the League of Realms in Jotunheim. It is full of energy but solemn at the same time, something I can imagine is no easy feat. Vanaheim is looks beauty as well, with its empty temples and mist hanging in the air. Other than that, nothing is spectacular nor is it offensive. It gets the job done.Next month The Accursed comes to an end, thankfully so. The story while still entertaining, feels like it has overstayed its welcome. Story points land well, while the bigger ones fall kind of flat. While this issue left some things to be desired, I have hope that the next will be more worthy. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Oct 11, 2013

    Thor is a fantastic read. Aaron is taking this book in a direction that allows him to tell grand tales that occur on the fringes of the Marvel Universe and that is a welcome shift from the Avengers stories. This issue brings together more characters to take on Malekith but it doesn't resolve the arc. This is going to be a fun arc to read and I can't wait for the next three issues to come out.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 12, 2013

    I think the Godbutcher storyline was Jason Aaron's one really great Thor story idea, and now that it's out of the way, he's kind of just coasting. I think someone told him to tell a Malekith story because of the upcoming movie, and this is just Aaron whipping up a fun little romp in Thor's corner of the MU. It's fine, because Aaron is great on the character, but it's not as impressive as Godbutcher. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Oct 12, 2013

    There are some nice ideas here along with some competent action and plotting. However, competent is the highest praise I can give to this issue with so many elements that are inconsistent in their quality, despite the effort of Aaron, Garney and Svorcina. Read Full Review
