Superbly written and amazingly drawn, the Thunder God has truly returned with a vengeance. Expect great things from this series.
If you like Thor then this is a good place to start for sure.
I mean, this is Thor, The Odinson, Got of thunder and all that. One of the greatest Avengers.
Being written by J. Micheal Straczynski.
Good ol' JMS.
The guy behind Babylon 5, the man who had that great storyline with Spider-man and the origin of his powers, the writer that made me interested in Spider-man for the first time in years.
The man that killed off my interest in Spider-man when he had Spidey making a deal with Memphisto to protect everyone and bring Aunt May back to life.
Just when Marvel were being gutsy with their characters.......
I heard that Marvelwere bringing back Thor and I worried. Why, how and should I care.
So why bring him back?
Well, the world had changed thanks to The Civil War, a Thor clone killed a one of the other heroes. and Iron man was a tool.
The word was missing something.
It was missing Thor.
Along with The Hulk, Thor would be the only other character who could tip the balance one way or another.
Whay JMS does is gives us a slow burning story, the slug-fest shows up close to the end, the rest of the time you meet Thor again, see where Asgard is. Best part is, you meet the neighbours. Very funny, very honest towns folk who now live with Asgardian gods.
There's a great scene with Iron man that save me a geeky smile.
The art work is great, makes me think of Any Kubert, and as for Thor's new look?
Glad the cape's back and love the warrior look, the touches of armour re-inforce this Thor as being different and feels like he has come back for a purpose.
I hope that he'll join an avengers team after this Dark Reign storyline's out of the way.
Thor is a great read and a story I have read again and again and again.
What stopped it from being five stars?
Me being petty and not forgiving JMS for ruining a childhood super hero, Spider-man.

I've read some very good comic books by J. Michael Straczynski. Sadly, this isn't one of them. Especially sad for me since Thor, as created, plotted and drawn by the great Jack... Read morePublished on 22 Nov. 2012 by Greywolf
