  1. LAME…. originally solicited as Fraction’s first issue months ago. I know it got changed but I already had it as part of my dcbs order so Im getting it with no intention of reading #612. Oh well … Gillen has a shot to get me on board but I need to be blown away. 

  2. Good point. When does Fraction start now?

  3. @USPUNX: He doesn’t start until September now.

    That doesn’t bother me though, Gillen’s run has been fantastic so far and I’m glad he gets the rest of the summer to shine. 

  4. I have no problem with Gillen staying on Thor. I just don’t like that Fraction was solicited for 611 originally and now he isn’t starting until months later. 

  5. Gillen as been quite good. My only problem is the story limbo this has put us in. I assume Fraction has concrete ideas how his run is to start, which limits what Gillen can do. All of Gillen’s run has been like that, finishing and undoing JMS stuff, doing Bendis’ Seige stuff, and now Heroic Age Seige clean up in preparation for Fraction. I would have liked to see Gillen do Thor with training wheels off.

  6. Oh look at that, the price is back at 3.99. What the fuck?

  7. Re-numbering needed when Fraction is on.  To distance itself from this dreck.

  8. Jesus Christ KickAss you say this every month, doesn’t make you any more right. Gillen’s first arc was fantastic, and while the latest issues weren’t as good, it was far from dreck. 


  9. @KickAss I am with @MacAoidh. The first arc was great. The second arc was not his fault since he had to follow whatever happened in Siege and became a place holder for Fraction.

  10. The sad part is I ordered it on my dcbs order monhs ago before they changed it

  11. What’s funny is that random comic sites (like comixology) still label this as Fraction’s first issue.

  12. cyberauron did the same thing. 

  13. This was a good issue. Seeing Rich Elson’s art in a full issue makes me appreciate it more. Some really good stuff here. Lots of exposition though, which I suspect is because he probably had to add to this issue since he probably had to rush to get two more issues going. Not much of a notch on that part, just stating that the exposition did hurt the issue slightly.


  14. Agree.  Solid issue.

  15. Wow. I couldn’t even finish it. Once we got past the Thor/Balder scenes (which were great), I just lost all interest in the issue and set it down. I can’t even peg it on anything, but nothing was keeping me involved in the story and I found myself flipping pages to see where Thor was. I tried rereading it later and couldn’t finish it. So, sad to say, automatic 1/5 for not holing my interest enough to complete the issue. 

  16. Great issue, really surprised how great the art was, too.  Nice job of fleshing out the mythology with awesome demon foes.  "To Hell!"

  17. I have liked gillens run but this was the first issue I have loved, great stuff! Great story, great interior art and high concept fantasy that makes Thor one of my favorite marvel characters! Plus the frazetta inspired cover was great! Potw
