  1. Is Esad Ribic staying on after this arc?

  2. Unfortunately I will be dropping this title after this issue. It’s been an amazing run thus far, but money’s tight and I think it’ll be more cost effective to buy it in tpb later down the road. But I’ve been enjoying this series immensely, anyone who hasn’t read it should really check it out as the story is so creative and the artwork is gorgeous. Seriously, this is a Thor story to be remembered.

  3. I’m gonna miss Ribic’s art and seeing the two other versions of Thor.

  4. This is definitely a title I will get from the public library.

    I think I’ll order the trade right now.

  5. Oh Ribic. I hate to see ya go, but I love to watch ya leave.

  6. It really suck that the artist is changing after this issues. I really didn’t like issues 6 due to the artist change. Marvel needs to get that artist change together and stop double shipping a book.

    • Dude’s not going to stay forever.

      And I seriously doubt Marvel is going to stop with the double-shipping.

    • I’m pretty sure you can’t blame this artist change on double shipping — Thor launched last… October, right? So this has been shipping only slightly faster than monthly. The fact that a guy as good as Ribic (not known for regular monthly output) has kept up this long is great!

      Butch Guice is a legend and fit in nicely back on issue six. I’m definitely going to give Ron Garney a fair shot, but I’m not terribly enthused about a dark elf story, and the fact that I’m reading a Thor book in the first place is kind of an anomaly, so we’ll see if I stay interested going forward.

    • Yea this title double shipped once, 1st and 2nd issues. In this case its just because Ribic isnt known for keeping a monthly schedule.

    • The art in #6 was good I just didn’t like it because it was a drastic visual change and it didn’t feel like smooth change. I understand how some artist work but most of the problems at Marvel with the artist stem from the double shipping nonsense.

  7. This cover is pure double-fisted Thor awesomeness. This has been an awesome story. I didnt think I would like this run as much as I have so Im giving Garney a shot, but for now Im just looking forward to what should be a bad ass conclusion to a bad ass run. Its been a great adventure.

    • I didn’t even know double fisting hammers existed until last issue. Now that I do, it’s all that I want.

    • Dampness I would be careful saying all you want is double fisting hammers – know what I’m saying? 😉

    • If dmannes wants double fisting hammers who are we to judge him?!?!?!?!?

    • Thanks phess. I’ve always had the urge to double fist things but nothing ever felt right. Now I know it’s hammers I’ve wanted all along! And I don’t care who knows it!

    • I’m just happy that you can be out and open about your love of double fisting hammers. Also did you know that Google Chrome dictionary does not recognize the word Fisting? You’d think in the decade plus of the search engine they would take that into account just by the sheer volume of the word on the internet.

  8. Man, I just want to like this book but I really don’t get it.

  9. Does anyone know what Esad Ribic is doing after this?

  10. And so I sit with my jaw wide open in awe of one of the greatest epics ever told in the history of comics. The art was on a level far above all rivals and the story was told with just the right balance of majesty and humor. I rise and slowly clap my hands in appreciation.

  11. I could count on one hand the amount of Thor issues I have read before this run and I fear I am missing something. Specifically what is the “Thor Force”?

    • I don’t think you’re missing anything. I’m in the same boat regarding a history with Thor, but I believe that when Thor becomes the All-Father (as Old King Thor) he has the Thor Force, just like Odin has the Odin Force.

      Now, what’s the Odin Force? I’m not 100% sure, but I think that’s just the catch-all term for his King of The Gods abilities.

    • Avatar photo Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

      What ISN’T the Odin Force? Am I right?

    • “Odin Force” is probably an Asgardian euphemism for Odin’s farts.

      Apparently, dude loooves onions.

    • I think it has something to do with microscopic organisms that permeate all living things.

    • Truly laughed out loud @PaulMontgomery

    • I am thinking of just explaining everything I do as “Using the Anthony Force”

    • All things that I can’t explain will now be a result of the Thor Force. Why are we here? Where do we go when we die? Why did my dog not pee on the news papers we laid out for him? Why did it start raining? Why is there a $20 bill on the street? Why do people still read Superior Spiderman? The Thor force and it’s mysterious ways.

    • There a hilarious Post-Coital Thor Force joke out there somewhere

  12. POTW!!!

  13. Guys, I’m sad.

  14. I’m curious as to how this arc will be remembered. top 10? top 5?

    Hard to top some of the Simonson arcs. Stan & Jack had some great stuff. Even JMS 1st story was great.

    This however might overtake some old favorites.

  15. Did Arron stick the landing? Hmmm…. I’ll give his “God Bomb” dismount a 8.5 – almost, but not quite there.

    Thankfully Ribic was there to pick up the slack in the story dept and make this issue a solid 4.5 for me.

    Story = 3.5
    Art = 5.a billion (can I award a “point a billion” points to art? =)
