    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman May 21, 2014

    This series is ridiculously good. Aaron packs the pages with astonishing action as well as engaging dialogue and Ribic's artwork is tremendous. This is yet another issue that proves why THOR: GOD OF THUNDER is easily one of best titles out there. It'll make you laugh, drop your jaw, and by the time you're done, it'll make you demand the next issue right away. Read Full Review

    With the final confrontations between present day Thor/the Minotaur and King Thor/Galactus looming, I am really looking forward to next issue. Every issue may not be a hit, but overall Jason Aaron is building something very special with Thor: God of Thunder, and I hope anyone reading this who isnt already reading this series decides to give it a chance. And as a final note, I know this is a Thor book, but the slightly deeper look at the Girls of Thunder this issue has made me really want to see them step out from supporting roles and feature more heavily in an arc down the road.

    The Latest Pull - Zack Myers May 25, 2014

    This issue isn't at all terrible; the epic fight with Galactus makes up for the unfitting villain that is the Minotaur. I enjoy the artwork, but at times it can be a little weird to look at. The next issue is the conclusion of the five-part series and I'm excited to see how the battle ends with King Thor and Galactus, and the Minotaur too"I guess. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Gaumer May 25, 2014

    I hate to judge a book by the previous books in the current arc, but this issue doesn't really stand on its own, requires previous reading, and simply isn't as good as those required issues. There were plenty of cool concepts introduced, fun characterizations, and an amazingly well-done and important social statement, but nothing that seems will last into the next issue. The future King Thor half if this ish definitely saves it in the long run, it's a mixed bag for the present-day Thor half of this ish, but that wasn't enough to ruin it altogether. Read Full Review
