  1. That’s one AMAZING cover.  Bravo Mr. Coipel, Bravo.

  2. Ok, Thor…Galactus…that’s a recipe for success. Unfortunately last issue was kind of a letdown. Here’s hoping Fraction and Coipel get it together.

  3. I loved last issue and Coipel’s art is outstanding. Some of the previews of this issue looked great

  4. Coipel is really good. It’s funny, the first time I really noticed him was on his Avengers run with Geoff Johns. I hated his work. Now he’s one of my favorites.

  5. I’m really geeking out on this series. Thor mano a mano with the Silver Surfer (and he’s not  zombie Thor so he can’t eat him this time.) The art is gorgeous. Coipel had a series of panels where some diner patrons react to the Surfer flying buy and shattering the windows. Gorgeous.

  6. Coipel’s art is seriously gorgeous but Fraction better step up here…make Thor the badass he is.  He better unleash Thor’s power in this issue.

  7. I’ve been loving this series so far. I can’t wait to see Thor kick the crap out of Silver Surfer and Galactus. 

    Coipel’s art is gorgeous.  

  8. I am loving this book.

  9. Coipel’s art surely saves this book from Fraction’s piss-poor Thor dialogue.

  10. I’ve also been loving this! Is it worth going back and getting the JMS Coipel Thor omnibus?

  11. @Martholamew  YES!  That was an absolutely fantastic run, definitely worth getting in omnibus form.  I read them in single issues and was blown away at the time.

  12. Awesome! I kept debating it, but that helped me make up my mind.

  13. This was really really a great issue-Art is amazing as always-Galactus never looked cooler.

  14. Excellent issue, this series has really sucked me in from the beginning. 

  15. Best issue yet. Loved the stuff with Volstag at the beginning and the stuff with the Surfer was great.

  16. I think this is my POTW but I haven’t read Rocketeer yet so I’m waiting. 

    There were some amazing moments in this though. As I told my friend “Damn you Matt Fraction for making my like a Marvel book…”

    Although… it’s probably more Coipel that’s making me like this…  

  17. AMAZING artwork. The shot of Galactus sitting on the moon while Surfer talks to him is unreal. I want it as a large print.

  18. this is just great comics. 

  19. I’m having a real hard time with the dialogue in this book. I love and Thor and Galactus, but Im really disappointed with this story. I wanted to love this.

  20. Fraction’s Thor is a lot angrier and testier than I’ve seen him.

    At least Coipel makes the book look amazing. I’m struggling to imagine another artist doing Thor justice (And I’ve got the whole Ferry run). 

  21. Another great issue the only thing i would like 2 c is Coipel plzz make them wrap around covers i think the would look even more amazing
