    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Oct 25, 2008

    Comic books of the modern day wallow in decompression that attempts to excuse padding. They are more apt to be chapters in never ending Big Stupid Events rather than singular works concerned with beginnings, middles and ends. They have become the playgrounds for bad writing and boring artwork. Thor: Truth of History is a stand alone story sporting eye catching artwork that compliments a sophisticated story with heroes behaving like heroes. Careful, Marvel. Keep publishing books like this, and you might just instill hope. Read Full Review

    This is good comics, folks. Davis provides a complete, thoughtful story in a style he actively demonstrates is far from dead. It may not be the morbid sort of enterprise we've grown accustomed to over the last twenty years, but it is every bit as entertaining as any straightforward action story I've read this year.

    Comics Bulletin - Mark J. Hayman Oct 21, 2008

    In the end we're given a clever, thoughtful tale of Thor and the Warriors Three attempting to impose a modicum of justice on a strange land, with considerable humour interjected to avoid it becoming too ponderous an exercise in pseudo-history (the fate of the pharaoh definitely elicited a good larf). Fans of Davis' pencils (and Farmer's inks) should be sated as this was clearly a labour of love. Rob Schwager's contribution was wholly effective, from the primary colours of the Norse heroes to the bleached desolation of Giza, from the frozen wastes of the mountains of Asgard to the firelit claustrophobia of the tomb where Volstagg was to be sacrificed. I'm uncertain as to whether I'd encourage much further "explanation" of ancient mysteries, but if they're this much fun then the odd bit of comic revisionism is just fine. Read Full Review
