    With Aaron's time with the God of Thunder soon coming to an end, you can definitely tell he gave it his all writing this mini-series and for a good cause; this very well may go down as the most memorable spectacle event from the House of Ideas in the past few years. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jun 26, 2019

    Easily the best Marvel line-wide event since Secret Wars wrapped up back in 2015, War of the Realms was epic and grandiose. As a long-time reader of Jason Aarons Thor, I was thoroughly satisfied by this finish. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Jun 26, 2019

    War of the Realms the culmination of seven years of buildup and the result couldn't be better. The book is fantastic, possibly the best event since Hickman's Secret Wars in 2015. Read Full Review

    It's the big finish we all were hoping for as Aaron, Dauterman, and Wilson pull off the biggest Thor event ever. They not only deserve a standing ovation for the grandeur of this finale but deserve a very big mug of mead. Read Full Review

    The finale of War of the Realms is big and cool, with a lot of neat moments, but I feel it was a surface-level event overall. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Jun 26, 2019

    After recent events in the main Thor title, I was left devastated and wasn't ready for War of the Realms. The event had the difficult task of navigating me towards what was left for the property and did an extremely good job getting us to the final moments of Aaron's Thor run. This entry won me over and has me excited to read the finale of Aaron's Thor. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 26, 2019

    While it's been touch and go at times, now that the dust has settled on War of the Realms, it's clear that Aaron and Dauterman have walked away from this battlefield with a victory - and in today's scattered event landscape, that might be one of the most godlike feats in comic books.
