Users who pulled this comic:


  1. If you would have told me a year ago that I would be all into a Thor comic I would told you to fuck off – or something – but yeah, this one is great and I’m digging it. Esad Ribic’s art is phenomenal!

  2. I really hope we get a lot of old Thor this issue, so far this is my favorite of the Marvel Now titles.

  3. Thank you Aaron for making Thor great again!

  4. The first few issues of thor have been great, but i don’t trust Jason Aaron’s writing after his awful hulk series and watx turning stale after the AvX tie-ins. My comic sense tells me this we turn sour after the first arc.

    • It’s sort of a strange way to start a series: in three different places three “different” same characters, but same villain. I’m interested to see how the next arc goes, but more importantly I’m REALLY curious how he’s going to tie these three Thors together to finish THIS story. As long as it stays interesting and beautifully illustrated I’m on board. It has a peaceful “naturesque” feel while reading, even during the action. I have liked it a lot and this will probably be my first read on Wednesday.

  5. Until Marvel NOW, I’ve been almost exclusively a DC guy. This book, along with Hulk and Cap, brought me into the fold. Well done, Marvel. Well done.

    • I went from DC exclusive to 90% Marvel thanks to Thor, Hulk, Spiderman and others.

    • Same here. Until recently the only Marvel books I was picking up were Wolverine and the X-Men, Uncanny X-Force, Daredevil, Secret Avengers and Fantastic Four due to the creative teams mainly. If 3 months ago you said I would be reading Hulk, Cap, Avengers, characters I had never heard of in AA and anything written by Fraction or Bendis, well I would have laughed in your face and I would have a lot more money in my pocket. I never expected to enjoy a Thor book again especially after a 20 year wait.

  6. Epic day today pulling 17 books or more but this is the one I’m looking forward to the most. Cannot wait. But the big question do I leave the best for last or read this first?

    • Man today was just a great day of comic releases.
      best for last my friend, and that’s Thor. with #3 it’s only getting better

    • I left the best for last. This use gets better and better, the art and colours are unbelievable and I just love the story and they way it’s structured is fantastic.

  7. Amazing!

  8. This book just keeps getting better!

  9. Avengers was my POTW. And then I read this.

    This book is magical.

  10. Phenomenal.

  11. I’m so interested to see how Jason wraps up the 5 issue arc, particularly for present day Thor…he can’t win, right? I mean, we see old Thor still being challenged.

    I loved all the different gods and pantheons. Like the big dinosaur god lying on its side. Our the rainforest gods nailed to the trees.

    This book brings new energy to Thor, which is pretty impressive considering how long this character has been around.

    • After this issue I’m very excited too see how it wraps up. I had some questions on how Aaron was gonna pull it together, but now I kinda get it, and I’m digging it. I’m sure it’s going to make an awesome 5 issue sit-down read.

  12. This is what I wanted from a Thor title. I have been sampling Thor for the last few years and, before this, JMS had gotten the closest. God’s fighting, being worshipped by their people, magical worlds, beautiful art, excellent writing, creative storyline. What’s not to like? I’m so glad issue #1 was POW or else I never would have tried it. Thank you!

  13. This is my pick ofthe week. Just like last issue the art is awesome and the story is very intriging. Never thought I would like a Thor book. I cannot wait till next issue. Thor is the god of thunder and rock-n-roll (not gene simmons).

  14. Thor; God of Thunder #3 is excellent….

    Beautifully drawn, each page perfectly rendered. It’s scope epic considering it spans 3 different time periods…..a well structured piece of work!

    Can’t wait for the next issue….
