Executioner...the legend of his life reverberates across the walls of Heaven itself. In Asgard, though, no one can recall what happened to him. How did he die? And why does everyone remember it differently?

    Thor God-Size Special #1 may not be quite the best effort from Fraction this year, but it's still a Hel of a read and a great way to cap off a year of terrific stories. I'm extremely interested to learn how Marvel plans to outdo their 2008 Thor output next year. Read Full Review

    Concussion: I've enjoyed all of Fraction's Thor one-shots save this one. There's too much back story and retelling of Asgardian personalities and not enough action and adventure. In the previous one-shots we were shown something novel about Thor's persona, like his rebelliousness for example. But here we're just treated to Thor the cliche, rendered by different artists. Pass on this one. Read Full Review
