I didn't love it. Anyone notice how Donny kind of adds a gimmick to every character he works on? Venom is now more dragon, Frank Castle is goofy and in space, The Inhumans had Vox, Silver Surfer is black, Rocket had a mech suit, and now Thor is Super Saiyan 3 Goku. I am starting to see this personal trope in his work.

Sure, it's cool. Sure, it's epic. It is also a bit childish and tryha more

Oh, okay, I see what you're saying. My bad. I guess that would be compelling, but that's not really a criticism, just an idea for what you'd rather be reading, yeah?

Superheroes for Hire - Jan 11, 2020

There's an obvious gimmick to get the speculators buying extras and readers hooked with something shiny. But Cates actually has purpose and satisfying story beats that follow, unlike many of his peers that endlessly kill, maim, and swap heroes to try and drum up internet headlines.

I thought it was a really good book. I was very entertained and although there were some issues that I had it want enough to not like this book. It has a big feel threat, it continues on Aarons run and it leaves you wanting more. Can't ask for much more in a first issue.

"What is a king... to a god?"

I don't really know how we got here story-wise but honestly, after reading this issue, I don't care.

It is exceptionally well written with an art that is immaculate. The new status quo for Thor can serve as a perfect jumping-on point (I'm living proof of that) and the unfolding story pretty much hooks you in form the start.

Wow, I did more

I read comics for more than thirty years, and in my youth, Thor was by far my favorite hero; he was a true warrior, honorable, brave; as the Norse God in the mythology, he was the stern protector of mankind. But in the last decade, because of internet agendas and incompetent writers and editors, the character got completely lost. For more than seven years, the God of Thunder was humiliated and dis more

Prelude:
For the first time in eight years, Thor has a new writer. Cates has shown that he loves Thor in his other books, but can he follow so closely to Aaron's Saga?

The Good:
I love this King Thor. Feels exactly what Thor would act like when he becomes King.

Still liking how Cates ties his stories together, this one being from Silver Surfer: Black.

Such a fun read, I haven't read the Thor run by Aaron and I was still able to understand where this story picks up and loved every page of it. Highly recommend especially if you have followed Donny Cates since his Thanos run.

Read Aaron's "God of Thunder" for the basic premise and best story of the run, and you basically know most of what happened to Thor in the last 7 years. It took a lot of detours after that, but basically he lost an eye and an arm and became King Thor as foretold in the early part of Aaron's run.
