    A solid issue of Thor God of Thunder. Being the third part there has been a lot of progress since the League of Realms formed. You have to appreciate that Jason Aaron has not dragged on this chase for Malekith to the point where this becomes folly. The confrontation between them is inevitable and hopefully the next issue pushes a bit further to see one side actually start to take control of this fight. The League has suffered one loss, tragic, but very well may be the kick they need to really start to work together when not drunk. Read Full Review

    Aaron and Garney deliver another solid chapter of Thor that does not hit previous heights of the series, but is still quite a solid entry in the full book. Witness one of the greatest Thor runs while it is still being published. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron continues to make THOR: GOD OF THUNDER one of Marvel's most delightful books. Malekith's material may not be all that gripping this time, but Aaron is completely killing it with everything else. The dynamic between Thor's team is a real joy to read and Aaron's doing an absolutely brilliant job with the script. Needless to say, I strongly recommend diving into Thor's world. Even if you've never been all that fond of the character, this book is sure to win you over. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Jeremy Radick Nov 14, 2013

    I like Ron Garneys art, typically, but theres been something off with his run in this book. Im tempted to say its Svorcinas colours, which may diffuse Garneys usual cleanly defined lines, though it could just as easily be Garney experimenting with his own style. Still, its not doing much for me, and is a bit of a let down. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 13, 2013

    As with the previous two chapters, the art quality is a bit diminished compared to Esad Ribic's work on the first year of the title. It's not that Ron Garney isn't a very capable penciller in his won right. It's more an issue of his pencils not meshing well with Ive Scorcina's colors. While those colors do lend a certain sense of consistency to the series, they also render Garney's pencils too muddled and muted. One need only compare this arc to Garney's recent work on Uncanny X-Force to see the difference. Read Full Review

    Anyone who enjoyed Thor: The Dark World will find a great Thor comic on the shelves. Jason Aaron is doing fantastic work on the character, even when he's forced to do an unofficial movie tie-in. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 18, 2013

    "Thor: God of Thunder" #15 is a fun adventure that investigates the League of Realms and the team-building process that the League endures as they seek to bring Malekith to justice. Malekith doesn't appear until the latter half of this comic book, but Aaron raises the stakes when the crazed Dark Elf does turn up. Just when it seems as though the League of Realms is finding its way, Malekith changes everything. The Dark Elf is a master of dispensing chaos, which comes with very high stakes on the final page of this adventure. Readers looking to ride a wave of adventure similar to that present in the latest feature film are certain to find an exciting, humorous, intense journey in "Thor: God of Thunder" #15. Aaron's done a fine job expanding the realms, now the battle continues to traverse them. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Matt Sculthorpe Nov 14, 2013

    Thor: God of Thunder 15 is a decent read but feels like some filler for the bigger stuff to come in the concluding issues. It has some fun things throughout but doesnt really stick the landing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Nov 16, 2013

    There are some good ideas along with some amelioration in terms of execution, yet the slow pacing alongside an uninteresting villain and a weak artistic direction doesn't make for a very satisfying comic. Read Full Review

    Thor is an icon, one that deserves better than sitcom adventures in Candy Land. Read Full Review
