    Jason Aaron's Thor run continues to be carried by fabulous art. If you enjoy comics as primarily a visual art form, you will love this book. Don't read it for the plot. Aaron's attempt to add some modern spice to the Nine Realms and up the stakes isn't as successful as it was last time. The Mad Max arc feels like late-period Claremont, relying on cool splash pages to paper over leaps of logic and tonal clashes, as happy as I am to see Balder and Karnilla back.

The Mad Max arc feels like late-period Claremont, relying on cool splash pages to paper over leaps of logic and tonal clashes, as happy as I am to see Balder and Karnilla back. Similarly, the King Thor subplot resembles nothing so much as a video game where they needed 5 more boss monsters really fast so they put some skins on the old ones. These ideas are all cool on paper, but tossing them aside one by one makes me care about them less. Meanwhile, in the main plot, Aaron's biases are on full display, making me roll my eyes at what should be fun character development. Thor is a Mary Sue. Religion is bad and every god except Thor is lame and being a good person never occurred to them. Magic items are way more powerful than the gods who wield them, except Thor is so awesome that he's still better than them without his magic item. Everyone knows that Thor is their only hope, and they say so often, except for the Strong Female Characters who have graduated from being brave to having plot armor. It's enough to break my suspension of disbelief.

    It's good to see Thor back, but this book really feels like it's just marking time while it waits for the War of the Realms to get started across other Marvel titles.

    I am not sure how I feel about this compilation, other than it was depressing from start-to-finish. I know I am reading the stories "out of order" in that I have skipped over the "Jane Foster-Thor" runs (those actually came in today, so I'll be reading them soon enough), but I do not think that really matters. I wasn't impressed with most of the stories; I think I liked one or two of them, or maybe some elements of one or two of them (view spoiler)[the story about Erika the Red was interesting a I am not sure how I feel about this compilation, other than it was depressing from start-to-finish.

I wasn't impressed with most of the stories; I think I liked one or two of them, or maybe some elements of one or two of them (view spoiler)[the story about Erika the Red was interesting an interesting take on who Thor's "first love" might have been and its ending was rather poignant; I also thought it was interesting that Wolverine would become the Phoenix at the "end of time" (hide spoiler)] . I did not care for the artwork, overall (Issue #7 probably had the best artwork, in my opinion). The stories were depressing and felt like they were marking time, for some future event (which was probably the "War of the Realms" mini-series/"Big Event" that kept getting mentioned). There were some "good moments" in the stories. (view spoiler)[I loved reading about Thor's granddaughters; they were fun "to discover" in his first run of Thor stories and are still fun to read about. I thought it was hilarious that Thanos "broke up" with Hela for whatever reason; I assume to return to Death and some new batch of stones? In any case, their "tiff" about how he was breaking up with her was funny. Future Thor and the Space Shark was pretty cool. As I mentioned above, I enjoyed seeing Wolverine as the Phoenix, and it was fun(ny) to read the story about the robbers who attempted to rob the wrong bar (because Logan and Thor were customers who were drinking and reminiscing in said bar). Thor's "dog," Thori, is funny throughout, and it was good to see Thor and his brothers together, even if for a short time. (hide spoiler)] As I also said, I did not care for the artwork. And the stories are so depressing! Or, elements of the stories. (view spoiler)[Like in the "distant future" when All-Father Thor tells Jane there is no "special place" after a person dies, no Heaven and no Hell, just before she "finally" dies in issue #1. It was one of the saddest moments in the book, and one of the most depressing. Just that amount of hopelessness and despair; it makes me sad if the author truly believes this to be true. I cannot imagine living like that. And then his writing about "Heven" and "Heven's angels," how they love to torture their captives in issue #8. It was a bit of a disturbing story to read; plus, the artwork is garish and really did nothing for the story (other than make me a bit sick to my stomach). I have never cared for Odin as a character, even back when I started reading comics back in the 70s. The author goes over-the-top in making him a complete and utterly despicable character in issue #10. The cover for that issue is so deceptive, too! It shows Thor and Odin sitting on a fragment of the Bifrost, sharing a mug of ale. Inside, the two get into a fight and Thor nearly kills his father in the process. It takes Balder stopping Thor from committing patricide. With Thor behaving the way he is in these issues, it is hard to see how he could ever "become worthy again" regarding Mjolnir. I thought the "Future Thor" stories were clever in his original run; I am not so sure about it now. They seem a bit tired, stale, and failing to catch that earlier originality, which is sad. Plus, the constant focus on "everything dies! Midgard must die! Creation must die! Thor is a fool for not letting Midgard die!" got pretty old, pretty quick. It's just - I felt like the "original" "Future Thor" story he told in his first run had some kind of hope in them, that there was still some kind of hope for the future. I don't know if something happened between that run and this run in his life that changed his focus, but I do not really care for these current "Future Thor" stories of his. It is like, at this point, what do they really matter? Part of me wants to learn what happens regarding Loki getting the Necrosword and part of me does not care. I was surprised that Ego was still alive, though; granted, I don't really care about his story arc, either, so we shall see if it was a wasted surprise. (hide spoiler)] (view spoiler)[One thing I thought that was "funny" was how the author knocks gods and other religions and whatnot yet has Thor being so "all-powerful" like he is, claiming that Thor's "greatest power and strength" comes not from the thunder or storm but the strength of his heart. I just do not really understand why he knocks other gods and religions like he does and yet "praises" and elevates Thor to the extent that Thor (and his mother) are elevated. Some of the moments at the end of this compilation really remind me of when Thor was "King" in volume two, the latter half of that volume's run (where he begins answering every prayer regardless of the consequences and eventually takes over the Earth; the story then jumps a few decades into the future, where everything starts to unravel and he travels back in time to prevent his younger self from making the mistakes that leads not just to the ruin of Asgard and Midgard both reality as he knows it). (hide spoiler)] This was a depressing run of Thor. I am glad others like it; I thought it was composed of some of the weakest Thor stories I have read in a while, and I strongly disliked most of the artwork. I imagine I will someday read the War of the Realms series and any of its tie-ins; just not any time soon. As this compilation only had eleven issues in it and there are sixteen issues in this "run" (volume 5), I imagine I will have to find the individual issues of the rest of the run (unless there is another compilation to be released that will include the King Thor run as well before volume 6 started the series over). On the one hand I am glad that I read it; on the other hand, I am sorry I did because of the level of disappointment I felt reading these stories. This is one of the few times I have been disappointed reading a collection of stories from the Thor comics, something I never thought was possible. Probably its lone saving grace was that it was a relatively fast read.

    The war of realms is almost upon the ten realms. Battles are fought. From the land of the dead to the heavens above. A young Thor loses a true love. An old Thor fights an old friend.

From the land of the dead to the heavens above. A young Thor loses a true love. An old Thor fights an old friend. The current Thor tries to find a hammer as worthy as the thunder god himself. Jason Aaron's Thor saga continues delightfully in this oversized hardcover. Thor has lost his prized hammer due to the events of the previous volume. His dwarf friends make him multiple hammers that are not as strong and Thor burns through them. Aaron probably gives one of his best young Thor stories yet as the viking god falls in love due to his half brothers magic. The old Thor story is fun too as it pits two great marvel heroes against one of marvel's greatest villains. Aaron continues his mixture of over the top adventure with some bits of humor. For the current Thor some of the adventures are fun where some of this volume does drag a bit. It feels like the war of realms is already been happening but it is still to come. And one minor complaint I have had throughout Aaron's run is his pages can get a bit too wordy. The dialogue and narration could be trimmed down. The art here is spectacular. Mike Del Mundo does the majority of it and it's zany and surreal. A great jazzy new look for Thor and his supporting cast. The other artist do great work too.

    This book feels like filler while we wait for the war of realms to kick in. The first story here is the continued efforts of Thor (now with an array of hammers) trying to make his way back to a worthy thor. This is the only redeeming part of the book, as the rest is all very mediocre. The art is very inconsistent and different artists worked on the book. Those who are by now used to Russell Dauterman art, should expect something very very different.

This is my own opinion, but Ribic's art in the first thor books by jason aaron gave a very old style painting like feel to the book, which fitted perfectly with the 'old' threat that Thor has to deal with. Dauterman's crisp and clear artwork was amazing for a new thor, giving it a fresh and bright feel. Here the art is plain messy at times. As the first story is the only redeeming feature (issues 1-4), it is simply not worth it. Messy art, and only four issues of interesting story with the rest being unnecessary filler is a shame for this book.

    Entertaining if uneven collection of stories. Thor Odinson has regained his "Thor" role but without his famous hammer. Instead, he's using a variety of dwarf-forged back-up hammers. It is definitely fun seeing Odinson back in action with a greater confidence. The collection feels like it is filling time until the next big event - War of the Realms. The King Thor vs Cosmic Doctor Doom story is the highlight of this volume. It is a mini-epic. Entertaining if uneven collection of stories.

    Set ud fra at det er de sidste kapitler inden den store war og realms crossover, så det ikke meget ekstra det bygger stemningen op til dette event. Historierne er da stadig underholdende. Samtidig er Mike del mundos illustrationer normalt super cool, men her synes det bare ikk rigtigt at fungere. Det hele virker lidt for mudret.

    A downturn from the well-wrought, patient crafting from the first swathe of entrees from Aaron. Not to mention, I can't help but long for Dauterman's clean, powerful lines. Yet, the intrinsic muscle of the narrative arc remains intact, pushing and grinding past the trivialness and fatigue.
