    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Jul 30, 2010

    Chris Samnee and Matt Wilson load the fifth silver bullet. The art is often breathtaking. Thor and Jane meet upon the roof to witness a gorgeous golden sunrise. The way she looks at him, and the shadows at once realistic and dramatic, all inject strength in the visuals and the story. Thor throws his hammer into the air, exhibiting his command of the storm. Jane's eyes boggle as blue-white lightning reflects from his armor and soften as she understands that Thor is lost. Culture shock gives way to action. The battle between Thor and Hyde is short but memorable. It's lifted by Jane's elation and halted by her humanity. Read Full Review

    Samnee is a great artist and I hope he stays with this series for a while. I like the expressions he puts on Thor and other characters faces. There is a simplicity in his work which is charming but also hides how much work he really put into to make this series such a joy to read visually. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 29, 2010

    We may only be two issues into this book, but I'm ready to hand this series the title "Best New Series 2010" already. Langridge and Samnee have an undeniable chemistry that bleeds through on every single page of this incredibly wellcrafted and highly entertaining comic. There are very few things I could even dream of complaining about in this book and they are all outshined by its many, many, many strengths. While everyone's eyes are on the leaked Thor trailer today, I really hope they don't overlook the excellence that is this series. This week had a slew of Must Reads, but nothing could come close to unseating this issue was Read Full Review

    Older readers, like me, will find this book to be quite a treasure. I've noticed that a number of the all ages reads of late seem to be more enjoyable than their "in continuity" counterparts. This title is no exception. Marvel is cranking out Thor related titles with a vengeance lately (with many more to come in approaching months) but this series is the main Thor series I have identified to be on my pull list.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Aug 3, 2010

    This is truly a delightful comic, but it isn't quite giving me the entertainment value that I need to continue buying it every month. I'm inclined to wait until this is released as a graphic novel; I think I might enjoy even more. Read Full Review
