This has been one of the better titles Marvel have put out recently.

The plot centers around a particularly nasty serial-killer who's victims all happen to be gods, and the action takes place at three different times in Thor's life when he encounters this being. This means that you've effectively got three protagonists: Young Thor, who's over-confident and up-beat; Thor the Avenger, who is the Thor contemporary with the current Marvel timeline and is the more thoughtful one playing detective; and finally Old Thor, who is cynical and damaged by events the other two have yet to experience.

It's a good plot - interesting, exciting, and above all, epic. It doesn't have any of Thor's supporting cast like the Warrior's Three, Loki, or Sif, it's just Thor, Thor, Thor...that means no romantic subplots, or indeed any sub-plots really, as you are jumping between the three Thors. Iron Man turns up for a page or two, but that's it as far as Avengers cameos.

Other things worth noting for potential buyers:

The art is by Esad Ribic throughout the entire book, and it is beautifully coloured by Dean White and Ive Svorcina. This means the entire book looks great from start to finish with no irritating changes in art-team to pull you out of the story. One of the best-looking books Marvel have put out in a while.

The story requires no knowledge of Marvel's Thor to enjoy - there are no references to past Marvel events, no crossovers with other comics, no need to have read any Marvel comic before to understand what's going on in this story. Basically this is new-reader-friendly.

This book is the first-half of a story that will conclude in the next Thor graphic novel "Thor God of Thunder: Godbomb", and consequently ends on something of a cliffhanger. So forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

Overall I think this is a great book and a must-have for Thor fans.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 12 Nov. 2014
Format: Hardcover
This is a superb opening to the new series of Thor comics, which runs through issues #1-5 of Thor God of Thunder, and is collected as Thor: God of Thunder. It opens in Iceland in the 9th century, where we meet the young Thor on a mission to answer the prayers of a Viking village who have had a visitation from a Frost Giant. Armed with his Asgardian weapon, the mighty axe Jarnbjorn, he soon sees it off, or at least its head. However, during the celebration feast, a body washes up, from the land to the west, which Thor recognises as a dead god, a god that has been butchered (in the Hannibal Lecter sense of the word) by an unknown power. Later, in the ‘present’, Thor hears a prayer from an alien race and comes to answer it, discovering that the alien’s pantheon have been butchered, and he recognises the handiwork of Gorr the God Butcher, who he thought long dead. Then, ‘many millennia from now’ we see Thor, the last god of Asgard, sitting in his hall, under attack from the forces of Gorr, the God Butcher, who has killed off all the rest of the Asgardians…

So, we begin in the past with a mysterious force, discover it at work again in the present, though we now know its name and that Thor has dealt with it before, and we see that force’s final triumph in the far future.

I didn't like thor when I first saw him in the movies. I thought the concept was just robbed from Norse mythology and the story was a poorly done coming of all tale.

Aaron's work I picked up on the attempt to be more open minded and because some spiderman jokes about thor made me giggle. I loved this.

Without entering into spoiler territory this book takes place over three parts of thor's life. Him as the avenger up to date with current events, him as his youthful Norse god not worthy self and thor as the king long after Earth and Odin have died and filled with regret over the mistakes of his past.

The actual story is about the god butcher. Gods are dying, not just from old age but whole families and pantheons of gods brutally tortured, skinned and displayed. It's genuinely scary. The God butcher comes into the story very early and is most definitely a godly villain. For those who know the marvel universe the God butcher is like an evil sadistic silver surfer with a whole other backstory and powers.

Young Thor is terrified of him, explained in story, avengers thor is terrified of what he will do and king thor is sort of imprisoned by him.

This is an amazing story, can't recommend it more without spoilers.

I think Marvel Now has been sort of swept under the rug, yes it's not as big as a complete relauch of every comic from #1 (like DC Done), Marvel Now is producing some amazing comics. Thor is one of them.

Let's get straight to the point i hate Thor. It's a "God" (Alien) that swings a hammer. There.
But this is Amazing. You can feel how Vulnerable Thor has become, I mean some guy is wiping out the God's. It's like Thor is a moth in a creepy ten year old's back garden, its gonna get it's wings yanked.

The book is split into 3 Versions of Thor from different timelines, His young reckless age, his middle still kinda reckless more knowledgeable stage, and his old am the last God alive stage.

Also the fact it comes with Digital Copies of this whole Trade and the Augmented Reality feature in some of the pages really show, marvel has made something special with this series.
I won't go into to much detail some other review already has, This is a must buy, really, i don't say that alot, I even bought it in Hardcover (i don't do that alot either)
