Format: Hardcover
The product description for this item is not quite right as the book does not include any issues from the Thunderbolts series. What you do get is Thor 607-610, the Siege Loki Special and New Mutants 11. The Thor series has consistently been one of Marvel's best since the character was resurrected a couple of years ago and this collection maintains the standard. Some nice artwork from the team and the storyline is the epic tale of mankind's assault on fabled Asgard! However, a small problem in that much of the key action takes place in the main Siege series and also in the various Avengers titles. For that reason, there is a bit of a sense that you are not getting the full picture. Still what you are getting is good quality - you will just have to shell out for the other Siege volumes in the series. A pity that the Thor issues immediately preceeding and immediately following those in this collection have not been collected in hardcover.

This is so much more than an accompaniment to the main Siege book. It's the Thor/Asgard backdrop that is fueling Siege and the writing and the artwork is excellent here. Gems among this is the tie-in New Mutants 11 and especially the 'Siege:Loki' one-shot which is reminicent of the LOKI solo series. The most annoying thing here is that the biggest event in Thor history for some time actually is not reproduced here, presumably only in the Siege book, so this ultimatly feels a little incomplete but I do recommend this one.

Just as I thought I understood "Siege" (Norman Osborn going slightly off the wall, and attacking Asgard alongside his Dark Avengers and HAMMER), along comes Siege: Thor, and blows all my initial perceptions out of the water!! Its also encouraged me to buy Thor: Siege Aftermath to see what happens next with Loki, Hela, Mephisto et al, so I guess that's a good thing from a book right?

The Plot:
Thor #607 starts the action right at the start of Siege: a prophecy fortells that Asgard will fall and the God of War will die. Heimdell is imprisoned and thus can't stop what is about to occur. Volstagg (on the run from Chicago following the "accident" that started Siege in the first place) is attacked by Ragnarok - the evil android/clone of Thor.
#608 continues the plot - the battle in Asgard told from Tyr and Heimdell's perspective, and the fight between Volstagg and Ragnarok underneath Asgard. As I'm not a massive Thor reader, I had no idea what was going on with Kelda and whoever Bill was...
Then comes Siege: Loki, which makes everything SO much deeper! Here, it seems that he was the one who had initially begun to whisper to Osborn, pretending to be the Green Goblin, and thus unsettling his mind. And then, there's a story about the Disir, and Loki makes a deal with the devil and Hela and... It just gets complicated! I know he's the God of Mischief and Mayhem, but I'm never sure what his plan is! Think Petyr Baelish from Game of Thrones and you won't go too far wrong! The art in this one is much more cartoony than the others in this book.
Thor #609 continues the Siege story following the Fall of Asgard (due to the Sentry), and Loki makes an appearance, telling half-truths to Balder in an effort to force him to abdicate, linking back to Thor #600.

Excellent culmination to series. Thor rules!
Norman Osbourne is finally out. Loki & the Sentry causes havoc even after death.

Not Siege: Thor, Siege: Asgardians!! 18 Dec. 2010
By Austin Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well opening up this book, knowing the low ratings it got, I had low expectations. The first thing to mention though is Billy Tan's art is definetely my favorite of this volume. I was very surprised on how well it was. Just in the first few pages I was impressed. The most interesting characters in all of this is definetely Volstagg and Loki. Gillen was very smart on his part to make them the center of attention most of the time, becuase I can never get enough of Volstagg. I was smiling and grinning quite a bit from his humor. And of course Loki, because Gillen seriously writes the best Loki I've seen for a long-time, he reminded me of a lot of Simonson's Loki, which in my mind is great!

What was the most fun about this read was reading it side-by-side with Siege. First I read Siege #1, then Thor #607, then Siege #2 then Thor #608 and you know the rest. Since Siege is mostly action 85% of the time, it was nice to get a break in between and see what was going on with the Asgardians, making Siege feeling lengthier which I thought was good. If you buy this without Siege, you will be extremely dissapointed, because you're missing a lot of Thor.

Normally when I read Thor comics I don't always read for just Thor. There's so many side characters that I want to know and see, that is was a good change from all of it, Balder's character has interested me since Balder's appearances in the past appearances from JMS and Gillen. I love watching Balder struggle being King and how he's dealing with it. Same with Heimdall and Tyr who get so little light shed on them, this was a good time for them to shine and get to see their characters more. So I was completely okay with this.

The Thor replacement in this book is Ragnarok, and he and Volstagg have some classic stuff, with an extremely memorable fight that kept me grinning. The one-shot with Loki was truly a high-light for Gillen, making me think he should write a series just for Loki. Thor #610 was a good epilogue to wrap up things for Siege, and gave Thor to unleash some of his anger, seeing Braithwaite's art in this issue in my opinion gives stuff more of an epic feeling. This was a fun volume, Gillen definetely tried his best and I was pleased with it overall. Although not the best, JMS's Vol. 2 is still my favorite of the recent Thor, this was fun and a great side-by-side read with Siege, but a little weak on its own.

It's not essential. If you got some extra bucks and plan on buying Siege and a fan of Thor, I verily recommend it.

(Update-- I wrote this before I knew Gillen was going to write the new Journey into Mystery series with Loki as the central character. I'm glad Marvel recognized that Gillen can write a truly awesome Loki.)

Main Event is Way Better 2 Sept. 2010
By Tyler S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Trust me. Siege has more to offer Thor fans than Siege: Thor. This book digresses way to much into this side plotline that involves the dead being ushered to Hel, and Loki's vague mayhem with the deceased. I couldn't really wrap around what he was up to, and I ended up not caring much for it. What sells here, is the Volstagg plotline, and the central connection to Siege. Everything else just fills pages with unnecessary filler. At least in Secret Invasion, we got a Thor sidestory that was actually worth the buy. This spinoff of an event feels unimportant. The story doesn't progress after the Siege, it just gives more details about the event. It's just too bad those details don't add up to anything.

However beautiful Tan's artwork is, Thor: Siege cannot be saved from its flaws. I felt like I was getting the right tones and characters, but the story was just lame. I do however love Loki's line "This isn't mischief...It's mayhem." But I'll probably forget that it was within this mediocre book and connect it to something else. You're really not doing any harm to yourself if you just get Siege. Siege was already a Thor story anyway, while this one feels farther from its source material. Ironic isn't it?

Just read Siege 9 Sept. 2010
By Saito Hajime - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First of all, I have purchased every Thor trade since his rebirth, so I would have still bought this even if I had read it beforehand. That being said, this book is god-awful(no pun intended). Thor is barely in it and it would make no sense if one has never read Siege. Siege is a much better Thor title than this could ever be, so skip this unless you are a completist.
good book 21 May 2012
By P. Bast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Myself and my eleven year old son enjoy the Thor series of comics very much. This one is a good companion to the Siege story and tells more of what happened to Volstagg and Kelda.

Really should had been better. 30 Dec. 2010
By Dylan Luciano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Out of all the Siege tie ins Thor's should of had the most relevance to the main book (because well it is his home being invaded) but instead we just get Thor and his friends dealing with a bunch of threats that don't appear in the book and have so little relevance that they might as well have not even shown up at all. The biggest problem with this book though is that for the most part nothing happens. There are pages and pages dedicated to one of the members of Thor's supporting cast being arrested and apologizing for unintentionally helping Osborne cause his Siege on Asgard but it has no real point to it. Even if something in this book did have a point its so boring and dull that it would fly over your head. Its not necessary to the main event even though it should be. (It wouldn't even have to be necessary tie in to the main event, if the author was creative enough they could come up with there own plot to have Thor do something in this book)
