    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Jul 9, 2010

    Thor: The Mighty Avenger is really a relabeled Marvel Adventures title. I don't know why Marvel decided to drop the umbrella. The banner made these books easier to discern from the pack. Fortunately, the lighter, sophisticated touch is a dead give away. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 9, 2010

    This issue really captures everything I have loved about Thor since I was a wee little lad, while stripping away the years of intense continuity that have made the main series pretty inaccessible to a lot of readers. What's left is an incredibly charming tale written by Roger Langridge that is full of personality and is drawn by Chris Samnee in an amazing twist on his usual style. To beat the nearperfect Red Robin #14, it took one heck of a book and Read Full Review

    This story recaps the early years of Thor as he arrived on Earth and meets Jane Foster. Thor wants his hammer back, but its trapped in a urn in a museum. Security thinks hes nothing but a hobo and throws him out. But when Mr Hyde shows up and threatens Jane Fosters life, things get more complicated for the son of Odin. This story is fun and simple, although it completely rewrites everything about Thor. Thats the one thing I dont like about this type of stories that dont try to fit in with what already exists but add a complete rewrite to a classic. I do like the characters and Jane Foster is more human and lively than shes ever been. I like Thor as a big hobo and the fact that as of yet theres not Loki in sight. Woah, a good Thor story without Loki? Well we know hell show up eventually. As for the art, I really like it. The characters smiles and faces were fun to watch. It gives the story a dated look which is good. Read Full Review

    It may not be the regular Marvel universe Thor book, but "Thor the Mighty Avenger" #1 is an interesting take on the character and gives you a good idea of what kind of person he is while focusing on Jane Foster as our POV character. Langridge and Samnee work extremely smoothly and well together, like a duo who have been a team for years. If you want a Thor book free of continuity that's just fun, great art, and dynamic character work, give this a look. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Jul 13, 2010

    I'm really intrigued by what I think this comic has to offer and am willing to stick around for a few issues to see where it takes me. Samnee's art is dynamic and fun, and Langridge seems ready to reimagine Thor for a new generation. I'm willing to give him a chance to make that happen! Read Full Review
